Simply Sublime

I've been on a little embroidery binge for a few days. I finally finished the Reform School Girl from Sublime Stitching's Mitch O'Connell set. Mmmmm Mitch O'Connell.. Would not mind if Sublime Stitching would come up with another set from him.

I think she looks good. I didn't do as well as I would have hoped on the face, but the flame turned out so well I had to take a close up on it.

The flames consist of 3 colors. Kinda nice, right? Took quite a while too. That's actually why I didn't finnish this for a long time. After I did the flames I put this aside for a few weeks.

This next one is from the Sublime Stitching Craft Pad. At first I got to say that I thought it was very weird that I found myself wanting to embroider a freaking fairy. But then I told myself that the fairy was kinda pin-up-ish, so it was ok.

This time I like how the facial features came out! And there's even orange there! Anyone who knows me knows that I HATE orange. But as an effort to try and tolerate it I started to use it in small amounts. First as one of 3 colors in the flames in reform school girl, and now in small amounts just by itself. I can live with it. I can. Maybe.

Oh, oh I did a little knitting too. I knitted this cute little pink cabled purse for "fill a purse swap".

It's knitted with Novita's Samos yarn. And I made up the pattern as I went along. Oh, and the best part: my swap partner really liked it.
