Lady Alexandra - Reimagined

* drumroll * Presenting... ... Lady Alexandra!! (or as I loving call her Rady Arex. AHAHAHAHAHA!!!)The last stitch went in at about 4pm EST yesterday and I am so  pleased with how she turned out! :D The Particulars: Lady Alexandra by Mirabilia Color conversion by Vanessa M. Facial rechart by Heidi B. Fabric: Merfolk's Morn, 32ct hand-dyed  belfast by SMF (Gifted by Brenda D.) Stitched 2 over 2 Floss: DMC, Kreinik Beads: Mill Hill, Pearls Started: December 7th, 2012 Finished: March 29th, 2013 I changed her earrings, ring, and tiara to pearls to match her necklace. I, for one, would never be dressed to the nines and have non-matching jewelry. ;) The chopsticks in her hair are stitched with kreinik. The beads on the 'tendrils' of her dress were changed from the original blue to a light lilac. Apart from the above changes, all the beads were as charted. I love how the purples of the beads and floss blend and compliment each other so perf

Random Afternoon Question

I'm posting on the fly here and using the Blogger app, so let's hope everything comes out ok. LOL. I'm kinda cheating with this post, cos the question is: Wanna see a face?

Duck, Duck, Goose

Hubby: There's a duck! Me: Huh? Wha'?? Hubby: In your stitching... * scrambles to look at picture from the previous post * Me: * gasping and dying of laughter * I'm going to have to post about this!!! Thus, the topic of today's post. Might as well fly (pun intended, HAHAHA) with it, right? First things first. Y'all want a new WIP, right? Lady A's gloves and clutch are done. YAY!! See the duck?? LOL! I started on her skin last night and hopefully that part will be done by the end of the week. I have to do a training session on Saturday though, so that will be about 5 hours of no stitching. :( A few weeks ago, outside of hubby's office, a mama duck decided to lay her eggs in an ashtray. So, a notice went up on the wall and everyone is eagerly waiting for the duckling to hatch. * fingers crossed * We're wondering how she's going to get her babies out of there when they're old enough... I'll keep you guys posted!

March IHSW Report

How were your IHSW's?? :D I am looking forward to checking out YOUR BLOGS and gorgeous stitching this week. Mine? I stitched!!!!! LOL!!! With how rare that occasion is, maybe I should have made the announcement a different way... * clears throat, flexes fingers * I... STITCHED !!!! There, that's better. :D OH!!!... And I hardly played D3! Maybe a couple of hours each weekend night with the usual gang. I know right? Whatever happened to me? LOL!! I'm sorry this post is a day late. I was at the new office all day yesterday and didn't get to take a picture till now. I'm also typing a gazillion words a minute as I'm wanting to get this posted before heading out for a lunch appointment with a student's mom. I hope this post makes sense, cos in my head, I'm sounding like a headless chicken... cluck, cluck, cluuuuuck!! ! What am I saying? Headless chickens can't cluck! Alright! Enough rambling. You want to see a WIP, don't you? Here she

Hellooo-OOoo-oo000000 Out There

How are you guys doing? :D I'm still alive(!!!)... albeit alternately busy and lazy... thus explaining the long silence and lack of cutie pie pictures, both of the two- and four-legged kind. We'll just cover the 'busy' portion of things, since there's not much 'xplaining to do for the 'lazy' portion. LOL!!! Sometime over the last couple of months, I've finished my requirements to become both a Notary Public and a Notary Signing Agent. Yippee!! I've started training for mortgage closings and the like and since this is a job that allows me to set my own hours, I'm looking forward to it working out nicely. I kinda missed Feb's IHSW. I think I stitch maybe 1 thread length. :S I did some crafting alright and yeah, you guessed it, it was in D3. LOL! Crafted Monkette a honey of an amulet on the third try which gave me a huge DPS (damage) boost. (To give an example of how awesome this was, some people have crafted a few hundred amulet
