WIP: Row of Love

This is the new piece I'm working on, Dimension's: Row of Love. This is my progress at about 11hrs. It seems so easy to stitch since I'm using the fabric that comes with the kit 14ct Aida, and my latest projects have been done in evenweave type fabric. So I'm giving my eyes a rest.

I recieved as a birthday gift from my sister, Mirabilia's new chart: Mermaids of the Deep Blue. So once I receive my package , I will try my first rotation ever, between row of love and the mermaids.

I just received some stuff I order from an ONS. A recently released kit of Newton’s Law and Mirabilia’s Enchanted Mermaid. I got EM with beads and treasures half price off .

I'm a year older today

Happy birthday to me!!

Today is my 28th birthday... even though my sister and I are identical twins we don't share the same birthday. I was born 11.55 pm and she was born 10 minutes later. Because of this we have a 2 day celebration.
This is when we turn 2.... we have never been able to tell who is who

This is a picture of us with our older brother. He's 2 1/2 years older than we are.

Here we're at the airport getting ready to board a plane to Boston.... my sister had just started the university and my parents gave her that trip as a gift... she was kind enough to take me along... I had started classes the year before.

Latest finish...

This is what I've been up the last couple of days....4 My Boys': Live ~ Forgive ~ Love. I've had this chart in my to do list for some time now. I decided to do it, because it was very simple and fast to do. It only took me 10hrs total.
I didn't use the colors listed, since I wanted to use a piece of fabric left from another project, and those colors didn't look well with the fabric.
What's next?...haven't decided yet

By the way, this is still Carol... *grin*

I'm finally done with Crystal Christmas, it took about 250 hrs to complete. Putting all the beads at the end wasn't a great idea... it was very boring... it took me 5 long afternoons to complete...I was about to give up.
But now that I'm finished I'm very happy with the result.

Here are my statistics:

  • Start date: June 25
  • Finish date: August 12
  • Total days stitching: 38
  • Working on beads: 05
  • Not stitching days: 06

Now I'm not sure what I'll stitch, but it will be something small...that way I'll rest for a while.

At 185hrs

This is my progress so far. I'm almost done with the cross stitching , as you can see. I'm now stitching the last angel. I've loved this project so much that I haven't been able to put it down for more than 2 days...
I'll probably recieve my beads in the next days... I didn't wan't to leave all the beading for the end because I think it will be very boring, but I have no other choice since they haven't arrived in time.
I noticed the other day that I started this project June 25, so I've just been doing it for over a month now.

By the way, this is Carol...I don't know why the post doesn't appear with my name. My poor sister is studying so hard she doesn't have time for stitching these days. She leaves to school at 8.30 am, and doesn't come home until 3 - 5 am the next day. So whenever she has an afternoon off (which only happens once every other week) she just sleeps.
