Aida Woes

Alright, so in my last post I was really excited about a voucher I received from Spotlight and the 28 packs of aida that I bought with it. Well, my aida never arrived. I did get an email from Spotlight saying that although yes I placed the order, there isn’t enough stock for them to complete my order, so no new aida for me. I had a few projects planned for that aida, so now I need to figure out something else.

In other news, I have kitted up a couple of new projects. I’m all set to start two new Joan Elliott designs, Summer Fairy and Father Frost (aka Santa Clause). I’m all set to start on Summer Fairy, but I keep umming and erring about whether I should use white aida from my stash or buy some blue aida. If I stitch her on blue aida, then I could do Spring Fairy on pink aida, and Winter Fairy on white, then I guess Autumn Fairy on ecru/cream. But then again I could do them all on white aida and use coloured matting to represent the seasons/bring out the colours.

But I should probably get on with and finish Rose Fairy before I start anything new. My ¬†grandmama is waiting for her, even though she doesn’t know what it is I’ve been stitching for her. Just a few more flowers and leaves to go, then I’ll just need to finish the back stitching and finally add the beads. Then I can go look at getting her professionally framed and give her to my grandmama.

That’s all from me for now, until next time,

Happy Stitching!
