Sabrina coming to life

Not much of a stitchy update, poor Sam is going through a colicky faze so not much stitching or sleeping going on here. Poor Sabrina looks more like a figurehead on an old sailing boat then the fine lady she will one day be.



I made a few changes to her already, her eye was suppose to be brown but I changed it to a green to match my daughters eyes. I was suppose to use 3 strands to back stitch around her eye and I thought this made her look quite trampy so I frogged it out and used only 1 strand which I think looks much better.

I mentioned in my last post that I doubted I would get all of my crazy 15 done this year and I was planning on changing my rotation around again. The only piece I really care about getting done is Sam's stocking, Santa needs something to put all Sam's treasures in next Christmas. So my new found plan is stitching on Sam's stocking every other week and filling in the free week with which ever piece calls out to me the most. If in a couple months I haven't made enough progress on the stocking, I'll switch over to it full time. I swear this boy knows every time I pick up my fabric and needle, that is always when he seems to want me.

Hope everyone has a great week

  2. Sabrina.....is becoming quite beautiful. I love that you personalized her eye color. I also don't care for the "smokey" eye look....agree with the trampy statement!! I think your rotation sounds like a great plan. Hope your baby boy gets to feeling better and gives his mama some stitchy time!!

  4. Sabrina looks beautiful. I love the idea that you personalised her something I never think of doing, too much of a coward. I laughed at the trampy statement. Your rotation sounds like a plan to me. Hope Sam gets better soon.

  10. Crystal, thank you for your visit to my blog and the comment you left! I love your Mirabilia (I'm assuming that it is, which I love)! She's already beautiful, but at this point, she does rather look like a figure head on an old boat, LOL! I loved the comment about her eye looking "trampy." Good one! However, the changes you made are lovely!
