Looonng time no post! I kinda lost my blogging mojo for a while there and was posting mostly on Facebook. But I'm back and here's my first update. I finished Sabrina from Mirabilia and framed her to match Roses of Provence. They go together so well:)
They are both stitched on Sandcastle Jobelan and framed in off-the -shelf frames from Michaels.

I'm happy to be working on her again, she had become a ufo for a while. The sandcastle jobelan that she's stitched on was very difficult to see. I've started using magnifier glasses, which has made the process so much easier! There's really not too much more to stitch on her.

I'm still working on the beautiful Esme, the background is really tough, I made the mistake of stitching it on a fabric that's almost the same color as the background. Oh well, too late to change it now.
I was feeling a need for a new start and had some gorgeous new Polstitches fabrics to play with.
And finally, for good measure, I also started an old favorite Fairy Flora. She's on opal Blue Breeze.

I finished stitching two more pages. The one rounding out her hip was fine, but the one in the upper left corner(branches and leaves) was a confetti nightmare. It took longer than any other page so far. I'm aiming to hit 50 pages soon, maybe sometime this summer. That will be the halfway point.

I started this project on April 12. Este is fast becoming one of my favorite cross stitch companies. They do superb conversions from paintings. This will be my 3rd large project from them. If you are interested, have a look around their online store! http://fondu4ok.com/en
