Fairy Moon, Week 1

Hello My Lovelies...

Hope you all had a nice weekend. I had a nice time. Lots of stitching on Friday night and I spent most of Saturday and Sunday exploring this city of mine.

I'm not feeling all that great today. I think I am coming down with a cold or something. My throat is all scratchy and sore. I can deal with anything except a sore throat. I can't stand having one so I will be heading straight into bed after this post.

I thought it would be a good idea to post weekly updates on Fairy Moon to gauge how long it will take me to complete. I can't keep track of hours because I have stitching ADHD and get easily distracted by food, tv, the computer and tv. Oh yea, I already said that. But I can keep track of weeks. Well, most of the time. How is it March?!

As you can see, the purple blob has grown! I am still working on the shawl and will probably break out to the wings soon just to throw another color into the mix.

I've been enjoying Fairy Moon and am so happy I just got on with it already. I'm not sure how much I'll get done in the next week or so. I have a stitching get together on Saturday and Fairy Moon is on 30" rods. Definitely too big for me to take around with me so I'll have to switch to smalls that day. My sister and family are also coming into town this weekend for a weeklong visit so I'll be a tad distracted...more than usual. But I'll try to get a few minutes here and there so I can get closer to a finish in the long run.

I'm behind on blog reading, commenting and emailing and my computer just hiccupped and lost all the blogs I had open to comment on! OMG! Everyone's stitching looks great and I love all your finishes! That's the best I can do at the moment.

I'm headed to bed. You all have a wonderful week!

Until next time...

I hope you will feel better soon. Great progress on Fairy Moon. Love that little bird, very cute!

Daffycat said...

Oh no! I hope you are feeling much better very soon.

I'm no good at tracking "hours" either. Come to think of it even weeks would be pushing it for me.

Your stitching looks great. The fabric color seems perfect ~ I just love it!

Sounds like a lovely weekend Valerie! Hope you've managed to keep that cold at bay. Seems like there are lots of germs going around these days. Well done on starting Fairy Moon, such pretty colours.

Giovanna said...

Nice going on Fairy Moon! Take care with that cold, hope it gets better soon.

Margaret said...

You've gotten a lot done! Too bad you can't take her to stitching, but yeah, 30" rods are a bit large for that. lol! Feel better -- hope you don't get a cold....

Sounds like your weekend was the perfect combination of stitching and getting out!

Your stitching looks lovely. Sorry to hear about your computer, ugh! And I hope you're feeling better soon!

Dee said...

UGH! I'm with you. Sore throats are the WORST! Hope you are feeling better soon.

Pumpkin said...

I'm just getting rid of a head cold so I hear you. It's no fun :o( Hopefully you can shake it soon.

Fairy Moon is looking so lovely on this fabric! Isn't it nice when you like stitching on a project this much? :o)

Terri said...

Your stitching is great, but I love, love, LOVE the little bird needleminder! Where did you find it?

I hope you're feeling better soon!

Rachel S-H said...

Feel better soon! Fairy Moon is very pretty on that fabric.

Deb said...

I hope that you're feeling better soon. Being sick is no fun. And it's kind of nice to see a weekly progress pick. Documents how much you get done in a week.

Julie said...

Get well soon Valerie, there seems to be a lot of ore throats in blog land recently.
Have a lovely time with yor family.
Super stitching!

Laura said...

Fairy Moon is looking good. Feel better!!

Carol said...

Such a soft and pretty color to be stitching with at this time of year, Valerie--you're moving along nicely.

Sorry to hear you've been a bit "under the weather." I'm with you--sore throats are the worst!

Hope you enjoy your sister's visit (they're not all staying with you in your apartment, are the?!!)...

Christina said...

Fairy Moon is coming on a treat Valerie. I've taken a photo of mine (the one that has been languishing in a drawer for over 10 years!) and will put it on my blog next time I post.
I too can't track hours of stitching - in fact I think I'm too scared to! My latest BAP is sure to run into thousands of hours - it's a scary prospect!

Joysze said...

Awww, feel better sweetie. Did you gargle with salt water? It'll help your throat.

Fairy Moon looks great. I love those colors.

Enjoy your sister's visit and and the stitching get together. :D

Theresa said...

Take care!!!!!! Get plenty of rest and drink lots of water. My husband is having a fever today.... I hope I won't catch it!!!!

Dani - tkdchick said...

Lol that's exactly where I started but then I branched into the skirt! I remember it took me the whole week of March Break to stitch that damned sea of white!

Looking good so far, I really enjoyed working on her.

Heli said...

I hope you'll feel better soon and are able to continue with this beautiful project. Lovely stitches and great progress!

Melanie said...

Hope you feel better soon!!!!! :)

Meari said...

You've made nice progress on Fairy Moon. 30" scrolls? How big is it going to be when finished?

Hope you're feeling better.

Veronica said...

You've gotten quite a bit of stitching in :) Sorry to hear you've been feeling a little under the weather. I woke up feeling kinda blah today too :( Hope you're feeling better.

Hugs,
Veronica.

Anne said...

So sorry to hear that you are sick darling. I hope that while I'm writing this comment that you are better. If not then gargle with salt and drink tea with lemon and ginger. I find that works to help the horrible feeling...that and Neocitrine helps too!! Lovely progress on your girl! I'm like you with the ADHD. Had a bout of it today!!!

HUGS for you!!

Margaret said...

Love the combination of the colors of your fabric and threads on Fairy Moon. This is going to be such a beautiful piece.

The little birdie guarding your stitching is just too cute for words.

Michelle said...

Beautiful progress. Hope you're feeling better!!

Shelleen said...
