A Small Update on the Faerie ...

Hello Everyone ~

It has been a hard few days, but at the same time, it has been a good few days, as weird as that sounds. We have been spending so much more time with my husband's family and it has been really great. The brothers are acting like brothers again. Our kids have been playing with their cousins and having so much fun together. I can't recall a time in the past where we have all hung out together so much and felt a true sense of family. The sad part is that it took a death in the family for this to happen. I just hope it doesn't change back to the way it was.

On a brighter note, I finally was able to bring myself to do a little bit of stitching tonite. Yes, I know it is almost 4:30 in the morning. Neither my husband or I have been asleep yet. But I finished the eyes and wings on the faerie, so I thought I would post an update and then try to get at least a little bit of sleep. I think this faerie is turning out really cute. Again, it's not very easy to see the sparkle from the blending filament in the pink areas and now also in the wings. Once I am completely finished I will post a picture both from the scanner and also with my camera so you will hopefully be able to see the sparkle that I've added to it.

So here she is ...


I don't know if I will be able to do anymore stitching on her within the next day or so, but I will try. If not, then I will work on her more in a couple days and hopefully get all the back stitching finished & she will be done!

Thank you all so very much for your kind comments and condolences. We really appreciate them from the bottom of our hearts.

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥

It is always hard to see that it takes a death to bring a family back together again. My prayer is that you will all stay close again.

I pray that you my friend will be able to get some sleep and rest.

Your faerie is beautiful and I love watching her grow.

She's adorable Margie. I'm sorry for your loss. I've lost a huge part of my family due to blow ups and bickerings since my granny died. It's terrible what can happen to families. I hope yours is on the mend.

Hi Margie...I haven't been able to get to your blog to leave a comment, but your fairy is adorable and my heart goes out to all your family.

Take care and try to remember you both need sleep. As I'm writing this I've been up for just over 19 hours. I think I'll hit the pillows.
