I am so sad I cannot fly out with the Crone to see you Mother, but an oppurtunity arose to escape my sister and I jumped on it! So I am moving to a cute little one bedroom over my own garage. I took 4 days off and will try to fit some stitching in. I started "The Dreamer" but she is the hardest stitch I have encountered to date so discouraged I returned to "Spring Queen" last night. The Mermaid sits untouched and it is all I can do not to go out and buy Venetian Opulance. Pictures to follow once I have cable set up. Hopefully I can come visit the next time Crone is in your neck of the woods... The Maiden

One of the Lilybet Night Fall project. The fabric is what is really outstanding called Relic (32 count). The threads are Weeks Works-the only crummy one is the Onyx which disintegrates as you try to tie knots. I am trying to use the waste knot on this one to try and get away from making too many knots on the back. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Here is an update, pay no attention to the hair for the lighter areas are changing. Updates will be few and far between as I now have to enlist the Crone's help. I will try to remain focus and not be tempted by Sleepy Hollow (another Glendon Place)!
