L&L Fairy Grandmother weekly progress

I have stitched on this all week. Where there should be a neck is a high collar of her blouse and will be done in beads. I add the beads when all the stitching is done.
L&L Fairy Grandmother
I am hoping to get a lot more done on her this week.

Monday I started out with some stomach bug but I felt better by Tuesday afternoon.

I started listening to NYPD Red by James Patterson and am enjoying that. I also read a little more of Triumph and Tragedy by K.R. Whitaker.
Still watching the Olympics every day.

Friday night I watched my grandson so Dylan and Amber could go out. He was so good and he is very precious. Saturday night Scott took me out for our Valentine's dinner. We went to North Shore Grill, which is on Conesus Lake. I grew up on the lake so it was really nice to sit at the windows and watch the snowmobiles and ice fishermen.

Tonight I am dying my hair brown so tomorrow Allie can put blonde highlights in. Then this Friday I leave and will be with a group of close cross stitch friends. We are renting a house, on a lake, in SC. So I won't have any progress pics next weekend. You will have to wait til I get back, which will be March 3. I am so excited.

I always save all of the beading until last as well. I find it easier than trying to q-snap or ring beaded work.

She's looking beautiful. Looking forward to seeing her completed.

Have a great trip, Shelleen!

Your project looks beautiful.

Beautiful. I'm weird I want to bead as I go so it looks filled in. So I got this new scroll bar type frame to try. A few friends had one like it at retreat and I used it a little bit. I really hope I like it. I have 4 Joan Elliott fairies I want to do with it.

Hope you have a great retreat. Hard to believe we (SC) had 8+ inches of snow and ice last week, and it's supposed to be 70s this mid week.

She looks great Shelleen. To tell you the truth I didn't notice the floating head until you mentioned the missing neck LOL!
Have fun on the lake with the girls, sounds like it will be a great laugh!
