The Insanity Continues...

Hey Everyone!  Here are the next 5 projects I started in my 15 Day Insanity Challenge.  I'll post the last 5 in a few days.

Day 6: Poppy by Nora Corbett on Tarnished Silver Opal Cashel by UTSF.  I've had help from my lovely friend Karen in recharting her torso to remove the wings and I love how it's coming together.  Side Note: She's taken to calling my a Pixie Plucker because I want to remove the wings from most of the pixies.

Day 7: Brilliant Mermaid by Dome on Calypso's Cay by UTSF.  It doesn't look like I stitched much because I ended up frogging quite a bit and I just had to put it down for awhile.

Day 8: Peacock Alphabet by Just Nan on Looking Glass Opal Belfast by UTSF.  Not much done due to a busy busy dye day.  Looking forward to going back to it though.

Day 9: Peacock Majesty by Just Nan on Looking Glass Opal Belfast by UTSF.  LOVE this piece!  It's been so fun and quick to stitch.  Since this picture was taken, I've stitched 2 more bands of the 15 so I'm about one third done.  I converted all of the colors to silks I had in my stash.

Day 10: Sirens of the Sea by Just Nan on Emerald Grotto by UTSF.  Another busy day without much stitching...

10 down, 5 to go...

I've worked on and off on different projects but so far I've tried to concentrate on Poppy.  This is how she looks now and I love her so much!

My goal is to finish the bustle and backstitch all of her skin tonight. Stitching with the reds is so much fun!

Also, I'm trying to find just the pattern or the full kit for Just Nan's Keep a Little Secret.  Here's a picture.

If you have one to sell or trade, comment or shoot me an email!
