Ahh! I didn't update on Saturday, and my Sunday update is late! It was far too hot to do much of anything this weekend-- Kamloops was Canada's hotspot reaching all the way up to 38 degrees! And it isn't ending any time soon. We're stuck in a heat wave! It was already 21 degrees at 6 AM today-- utterly crazy!
We moved all our beds downstairs, and have been sleeping in the living room. Feels like a camp out, and least we're avoiding the heat! Unfortunately, the fact all three of us are downstairs makes it hard to keep a lamp on/near me while cross stitching. It kept getting turned off... >.>
So, my IHSW wasn't as productive as I had hoped it would be. First up will be a WIP of the Fairy Silhouette, which I only managed to finished a wing and a half. It was too dark once I started working on it, which required me to hold the aida in an awkward position, so I successfully managed to hurt my arm. ... I haven't work on it since. XD
After I put down the fairy, I procrastinated for a little while. What to work on, what to work on? Eventually I decided to start on a Christmas present, since I had the pattern ready to go. I don't want to leave gifts until December, since then I don't have time for ANYTHING else. I learned.
That is the beginnings of a witch's hat. A Slytherin witch to be exact. ;) It's for the same person as the Fairy Silhoutte, who is a big Slytherin supporter. I'm going to adjust the colours so that it looks like her! Unfortunately, the pattern consists of a lot of black, so I was thinking I could make the hair green, even though that isn't her real life hair colour! (It's very dark.)
The pattern asks for 3 shades of black, one of which I don't have, so I'll need to go thread shopping. That also explains that blank portion of the top. Even if I don't get the necessary colour for a while, it'll be a lot less to stitch come December!
Not a whole lot to update with, but better than nothing! I'm still in a mood for stitching, so I'll take advantage of the early morning before it gets too hot! Till next time, xoxoxo
