Progress and a New Start

Since I last posted, I've made more progress on my Trick or Treat Fairy. Its very cute and I love how its turning out.

On Sunday evening, I finally started the 2008 Quaker Mystery. This project just ended and I am only now starting it. It took me a long time to figure out what color floss and fabric I wanted to use. I am using Spring Meadow 32ct Jobelan and Old Maid of the Forest by Vikki Clayton HDF. I'm using 1 strand over 2. I was unable to capture the beauty of this fabric on film. It's a hand-dyed fabric in subtle shades of green. Believe me, its really pretty. I orginally planned to use Miracle Mint, but my LNS has been unable to get the fabric from the manufacturer because its on back order. Anyway, when I was at the LNS in August, one of the sales ladies (Sharon) recommended Spring Meadow and I LOVE IT. I am so glad now that I didn't start this project on the Miracle Mint.
