In The Beginning...

I'm sorry I have not posted before this but I was trying to get enough done on Sabrina so I could post a proper progress picture. It's hard to believe it's been a little over a week since I started her and this is what she looks like so far -

All that is missing is the backstitching around her face and eye, plus the beads. I was going to add them before the picture but I'm going to stay true to my usual method and leave them until the end ;o) Even though I despise blending threads, I bit the bullet and got them done. On 32 count, it seems they aren't as noticeable.

Here is another picture with a better idea of the fabric colour -

Sabrina is pictured along with one of the gorgeous pairs of scissors that I received from Yuko :o)

My next plan of attack? I'll continue down and stitch her shoulders and then it's onto the dress! It's all about the dress isn't it? LOL!

Things have been pretty quiet here. Still no word from the job I applied for and it closed on the 18th :o( I'm really pulling my hair out so I'm going to get some help and see if my resume needs a revamp. I'm told it's not easy to find a job around here but this is ridiculous! I told DH that I might have to dumb down my qualifications ;o)

Gorgeous! I love Sabrina. Yes, it is all about that dress.

She looks beautiful. I'm not a fan of blending either, but it sure worked well here.

Too bad you can't get a job as a stitcher!

Hi Cathey,

Oh Boy!! You've gotten a great
start on Sabrina and she's already
looking fabulous! Your stitches
are beautifully done. I can't
wait to see her dress developing.

I'm sorry that you haven't heard
back about the job you'd applied
for. It must be so frustrating
when a company doesn't even give
a courtesy call back. You'd
think that they'd be jumping at
the chance to hire someone like
you with strong qualifications
who is eager to work for them.
It's their loss!!

I must say your post on weiner
dog gadgets was certainly....
entertaining. I think that the
lamp was my own personal favorite, although the earbuds had a certain
charm to them too.

Cheers!
