I'm stuck

I hurt my back monday morning right after I got up ... doing nothing, just bending over to grab something ... (on a 30° angle) I guess I slept in a bad position ... Anyway, I feel a little better,not great but better.


I'm also stuck because I can't stitch on my fairy anymore ... See when I started to stitch that one, I realized I was missing the Caron waterlilly and when I talked about it on a bulletin board, someone told me I could replace it by a Caron wildflower and that's what I did. Big mistake !!! A wildflower is more like a pearl cotton so it cannot be use for backstitching : it's too thick ... I'm surprised nobody warned me on the bulletin board ... But I'm lucky: Patou, an incredible stitcher (check her blog: here ) ordered two of these threads so she's going to sell me one of her wildflower. But I stitched all I could do with the regular threads and the kreiniks and I have to stop right here: ( it is enlargable like always ):
And a larger view of the wings:
And I prepared my next project because I need to keep busy, right?
Thanks for your nice comments on my last post !!! It's so nice to read them !!!

I see you are cheating again. What? Only a small amount of green and metallic at a that. :-) I hope you feel better soon.

Tammy said...

wow she is a very pretty fairy!! Maybe I'll have to stitch one in the future sometime but until then look forward to seeing yours completed

Hope you back straightens up soon. It will be a lovely finish when you get your Wildflowers color.
Love your thread colors for your new project.

I hope your back gets better soon. I'm really sorry to hear about the thread problems. Glad to hear you have friends like Patou to come to rescue.

You asked why I have stitched so many wolves lately. I decided to spend one year stitching only projects for ME. I love wolves and that's why I stitch them. I have stitched few cards so I haven't kept my decision and I'm currently planning to stitch something for my daughter next. I think I can't resist her kind request and we have had some troubles with her so maybe this brings us a bit closer again.
