Titania - finished at long last!


Finished! I'm very pleased with how she's turned out. I put the final stitch in on 30th September. My only finish so far this year! She was stitched on SMF's Winter Meadow Belfast linen, skin stitched over 1. I also used metallic pink and silver beads to go with the wing conversion. Somehow I have another 8 WIPs on the go and all of them are BAPs, so not sure that I'll be able to finish anything else this year.
Dad is now quite settled in the nursing home. We had a review last week & it looks as if he will be staying on a permanent basis. The next step is to continue clearing and then sell the house which will be very hard. I'm going through a tough time emotionally at the moment, which is why I'm not blogging much right now - haven't got the heart to really. But I'm getting a bit of stitching in each day now though - little and often and I WILL see off those other WIPs eventually! Happy stitches everyone xx

Titania is beautiful! Congratulations on the finish! I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. I'm sure it is very difficult knowing that he will be staying in the nursing home. I hope you can find a little escape and peace in your stitching.

Beautiful job Sam. She looks so dainty.

Hope things with your Dad even out. We were close last year to doing the same with my parents due to a bad illness my dad had.

Titania is beautiful - Congratulations.

Sorry to hear about your dad, hopefully it will get easier with time. Sorting the house out will be pretty traumatic with all the memories too. Good luck with it.

I am so sorry that you are going through a hard time. Sometimes it feels as if you are all alone in these things. Please know that you aren't. There are many of us out here in blogland who understand what it is to go through very tough times, so don't be afraid to share and get the encouragement you need. Bless you and my hubby and I will keep you in our prayers.

Hi Sam, I can see you haven't updated your blog in quite some time - I can't find any other way of contacting you, so I hope you get this.

I'd love to do your conversion of Titania's wings on my Titania. Your Silver conversion is exactly what I've been looking for... do you have them charted or at least a list of what you ended up using?

You can contact me through my blogger profile.

TIA

Kirstin.
