A double post!

Good morning everyone, I've got a double update this week. Firstly my update of Fiary Tale Sampler, which is really lovely to stitch, it's stitching up really quickly and has been a voyage of discovery for me. This has so many firsts for me, it's my first time stitching on hand dyed fabric, first time stitching with dyed threads, first time stitching with krenik and first time trying the different speciality stitches as well, so it's quite an adventure really. I can't get a decent picture of the fabric unfortunately, and it's such a shame because it's such beautiful fabric and it's got little sparkly bits in it, so gorgeous. It has to be said, after everything that I've read, the Krenik wasn't as horrific as I was expecting, don't get me wrong, not my fabourite thread to stitch with, but not to painful, the joy of thread heaven I guess. However, I think I'll be trying the blending filament when I start using krenish on HAEDs.
My second update is Dragon Rider, it started calling to me again and I just couldn't resist. Ben's away today, getting back late tonight so I'm planning a bit of a stitching and dvd marathon, although I haven't decided which dvds yet. so there's no much progrewss on the next page yet, although I'm loving how you can see this page growing out of the last one. So, hopefully I'll be able to show a good update next week having worked on it loads this weekend. I thought I was going to get to see the motorbike on this page but it doesn't look like it unfortunately, so I'm going to have to keep stitching before that happens.

The fabric on Fairy tale sampler is lovely in the pic so I'm sure it's even more amazing in reality. Good job on the Spangler, the colours are so vibrant. Looks great!!
