Crazy Day Five!

Today I started Joan Elliott's "Believe."

I wish the camera would capture the colours more accurately.  They are such jewel-like shades.  It's gorgeous.  I'm missing the two colours I needed to finish the letters.  I placed an order at 123 stitch before Christmas and a three week wait is usual before my package will arrive in Australia - so fingers crossed they'll arrive tomorrow, ready to work on day six!

These designs have plenty of beads but no braids or filaments.  I wanted a bit of sparkle, so I've started adding some Kreinik 032 BF to the stars.  Just one strand of BF with two strands of floss, I only want a hint of sparkle.

Well, off to bed.  Onward to day six.  I intend to start JE's "Dream"  but there will be far less stitching time tomorrow as we have visitors coming for the day.  I won't get to stitch at all until the kids are in bed.

Happy Crazy Stitching Everyone :D
