Faces of Faery 75, Queen of Hearts and The Last Leaves

I apologize for not updating for so long, but I've been stitching in several charts and I think my progress were no enough to show you. Last weeks I have advanced and here are my progress.
FACES OF FAERY 75: The diadem and earring have a lot of confetti, but it's very funny stitching it. Stiched on lugana 25, 1 over 1

QUEEN OF HEARTS: I love it. I think it's one of the most beautiful charts on the world. Now you can see the face, and I hope to stitch very quick to see it finished. (Lugana 25, 1 over 1).

THE LAST LEAVES: The photo is not very good. Here you can see the first line of pages. Sometimes is heavy, becasuse most of it is on white (Lugana 25, 1 over 1

Happy stitching!

Updating the Membership

Thanks to the few that have responded/commented to my post.
I am going to go through the membership list this weekend.  Anyone that hasn't posted in the last 6 months will be removed.  I will then offer full posting membership to buddies, in order.  This will take some time.  I'll post again when I can update you with more information.

Terrible stitching slump ... but here's a little update :)

I've been in an awful slump again ... not sure if it is the time of year or what (I was the same this time last year)  Anyway, I've started to do a bit, a few stitches here and there.  So here is my BB SAL piece ...

And A Princess is Born (Hannah Lynn) Just starting on the second row of pages ...

Progress on Call of The Raven

She is still growing. Almost finished her dress now.

It's Been A Week

Yes, a week since my last Admin post, and I haven't received a single email from any member.  Should I take this to mean that none of them are coming to the blog?  Not even to read the posts?
I am unsure of what to do next.  Do I toss out every full member that hasn't posted or communicated in any way in the last month or so?  Then invite all the buddies to become full, posting members?  It is unfair to the buddies that we have 100 posting members, all slots taken, yet most of them don't even read this blog....

Slow Progress On Curl Up with A Good Book & Wizard of Oz

I haven't had much progress on any of my HAED's lately.  But I thought I would share where I am on a couple of my pieces.  I noticed that I haven't posted these updates yet.

My Curl Up With A Good Book from the 2011 BBSAL:

I sent my Wizard of Oz out for an UFO Round Robin, and some really great progress was made!

Page one was finished and pages 2 and 8 got some good progress made on them. :)

Thanks for looking!  I am hoping to get some time in on Curl Up soon.

Thanks very much and see you when we get back!

Admin Cleanup

Hello All,
    It's that time again!  We need to do some housework.  There are many members that haven't posted in a long time.  I know life gets in the way, I have my hands full with Admin here, on the BB, and on Face Book.  With so many requests to join, it's unfair to have an enormous list of buddies, while full posting members aren't posting.  With over 100 full members our blog should be very busy.  So the first step of the cleanup is this.  If you haven't posted in a while and are willing to give up your slot as a posting member to a more prolific stitcher, please email me and let me know, do not comment on this post, email me.  We'll see how many slots we can open this way.  I will, of course, let the buddies know that they may move into a full posting slot in the order in which I received their initial requests.  So first into the buddy list will be first into the full member list, and so on.  I'll let you all know where we stand in one week's time and if we need to take more steps in the clean up.
Thanks for your understanding.

BTW:  Buddies, when you email your post please be sure to add your name to the body of your email!  No one will know who posted what, if you don't.  Also include the title of the chart which you are posting.  Stats would be good as well.  Fabric type & count, floss type, silks, DMC, etc.
