Wizardly Happy Dance
I have just completed my Joan Elliott Wizard this afternoon. I made a few changes to the threads, mostly changing plain DMC to the metallics, in the stars, swirls and the orb at the end of his wand. I also changed the confetti around the swirls to beads.
The fabric is a Crafty Kitten grab bag piece of 28 count linen. Quite a loose weave so I had to be careful with the beads and metallics not to pull the threads of the linen out of shape.
I intend to scrapbook the design once I find the right paper for him. This is the third piece I have finished from the Diary which was the cover gift on orld of Cross Stitching magazine last year. I have also stitched about 75% of the February cherub. The next design is the July Mermaid but I don't have the right fabric for her nor do I have any for August or September!! So I suppose I better do some shopping soon.
I finished the Dragon Dreams 7th Dragonlet of Christmas in 2 days flat but don't have a photo yet so I'll save it for Ornie Update Day.
Finally, the second postcard in the Summer Postcard Blog Hop has gone out. Here are the links for the Hop so far:
