*big, big, grin*

I love my local cross stitch shop. If they're out of anything, they'll make damn sure they get it back in stock. My dad picked up this for me today:

I've been waiting for this one! The shop was sold out, but they ordered more and held one for me! I can't wait to stitch it. Dad bought it for me as "payment" for my aunt's wedding sampler. He didn't have to do that, but he wanted to make sure I got this one while it was still available. I'm looking forward to seeing the sixth and final Holiday fairy! 

Miss New Year will have to wait, though. I'm struggling a bit with my current project. It has some weird stitches that I've never done before.

Wow. She is so lovely. Can you really do that?!? Wow.

Oh, yeah. I've already done three others in the series, and I have the Halloween fairy in my stash, too. The tricky part is the beading. I have to have a very tiny needle. I've lost track of how many times I've stabbed myself. It takes patience more than anything.

Patience is what I figured for such a talent, which is why I know I'd stink at it. The best I ever got was mildly good at basic crochet. Those stitches must take the tiniest and most precise hands. I can't stop staring. So well done.
