As the picture I took doesn't really do the fabric justice, I've included a pic of the actual fabby colour as well.

My boyfriend and I have decided to name our little one Lily Florence and so I was thinking I'd stitch Nora Corbett's "Alphabet Fairy L" as well as her "Alphabet Fairy A" for my boyfriend's other daughter, Abigail. I liked this idea:
Although I find the "A" and "L" aren't quite as elaborate-looking as the "E" shown above.
*sigh* soooo many choices...lol...if anyone has any good ideas, please feel free to let me know ;)

On the stitching front, in between prepping for my best friend's wedding, and all the festivities that come along with it (ie. showers, bachelorette parties etc.) I've switched to working on HAED's "Summer" (artwork by Ruth Sanderson). My best friend had requested I stitch it up for her several years ago and I had made good headway on it until I realized that my fabric wasn't large enough. So I restarted in tent-stitch. I can't believe how much quicker these stitch up using tent-stitch instead of full crosses. I've got about half a page done and will post a pic as soon as I can.
I've been doing really well concentrating on finishing pieces I already have in my stash...and then a dear friend from the Crafty Coven "had" to post a link to this:
It's called Fairy Flower Garden and it's by Chatelaine. It's a little on the expensive side, but that's to be expected with Chatelaine patterns as the materials are so luxurious. Oh I CANNOT wait til payday to get this ordered...lol...so much for willpower!
