It’s time for yet another Bluebell SAL update. Stitching has been going great all things considered. I’ve somehow managed to get, what I think is, vertigo. I get dizzy when I bend down or put my head down. I’m also dizzy at night when I turn sides. I’m completely fine when I’m upright. My right ear has hurt on occasion, so I’m guessing the vertigo may be a result of an ear infection. I see my doctor this afternoon. Hopefully, we can get this cleared up.
Since update no. 3, I unpicked the light shade of skin and restitched the lighter shade with the darker shade making her skin a uniform colour. I also got some back stitching done in sections that were complete, i.e the legs, arms, and on the bluebell flower above the pixie. I’ve started the beading as well and have most of the beads done on the upper portion of the design minus a few confetti beads, which I will get to. Right now, I’m focusing on blocks of beads where I can.
I am still missing one of the colours of Kreinik for the wings. I followed up with my LNS this morning only to find out that they misplaced my order. It’s nowhere to be found. *sigh* They just placed their order, so their next order isn’t going in for another couple of weeks. Then I’ll have to wait another couple of weeks for that shipment to come into them and then to me. I’ve decided to purchase it online along with my next project and whatever supplies I need for that to cut my wait time down to two weeks (hopefully).
On another note, my camera isn’t working. The screen doesn’t come on, so I can’t see what I’m snapping. The last couple of photos were taken with my new iPhone and I think they came out nicely.
In the meantime, here’s my progress:
