It's been a little while since my last update. Sewing is still going slowly. I have finished one of the pokes for the Pokes & Seeds exchange and finally got a kit together for the other. (It's maddening when you're trying to put a kit together and realize you don't have the colors you need and you can't get to the store until the weekend.) I'm starting on the second one today, and as it's small I hope to have it done quickly.
I cannot, however, work quickly on the Winter Fairy. As I've said before, it's a more detailed pattern and on finer fabric than I've ever done, so I have to be careful or I make mistakes. Hubby laughed when I said my goal is to finish her by this Thanksgiving but I'm sticking to it. Among other things, we have a week's vacation at the end of August and I tend to spend at least 50% of that relaxing, so I'll get a lot of stitching done then. Meanwhile, I've finally gotten enough done to warrent an updated photo, so here it is. I will be very glad when I'm eventually done with all that white and pale blue in the skirt!
