Well I must say I am now very happy with the progress I've made on Heaven and Earth Designs Summer ACEO. As I said when it was half term I didn't get a lot done so decided to carry on with her this week so here she is. I didn't manage to get page 3 finished but I will next time she's out ( I hope!). I think she's looking really good so far. Her wings are really pretty and it's amazing how many different colours and shades there are in those alone! This is one of the HAEDs with only 50 colours in and I say only because most of the ones I have have 90 colours, except for Guardian which only has 8!
So tonight I am going to start Sherry Senicar Designs Believe in Yourself ( keep calm Paula!). I have some Polstitches Dragon Shades called Fairy Lights, which was in my Christmas Stash pack from Jayne's Attic, and I think it will be perfect for this design. I also have some threads which were in the pack mostly Jayne's Attic exclusive colours ( I think they are Carrie's Creations) and I'm going to use some of those as well as some Gentle Arts Sampler Threads. I am going to make it into a bellpull when it's done and give it to Jessica for when she does her GCSEs.
Now I am off the stash wagon I haven't bought a thing! Ever get the feeling you are just not meant to! I emailed somebody about some threads and I haven't heard anything. I know she got the email as I got a read receipt. I will hang on a few days and see if she gets back to me or not. I haven't signed up for the COTM club as yet as Sassy's Fabby's is closed at the moment due to the death of a close friend but I will email Lauren when she re-opens.
Oh and before I forget I would just like to say a huge thank you to Heather and Kim who have been trying to help me get a strikethrough when I have completed something on my goals list. It has taken me ages and lots of frustration trying to get it to work and I feel so dumb now that I realise what I have been doing wrong! LOL! You could probably have heard that penny drop out in space!
I have been to the opticians today. I'm not actually due an eye test until July but I've been having a few problems and thought it best to get them checked now rather than wait. Turns out that my left eye has changed quite a bit but my right one is more or less the same as last time! As they had an offer on on specs £75 and over where you got a pair free I paid an extra £24 to get tints put in one pair so that I have sunglasses for when I sit outside in the summer and stitch or read. So I'll see if new glasses solve the problems!
