Bookworm Fairy: A New Start

Well, my terrible luck with illnesses has continued, but I have a new start!! I haven't had much time to work on it, as my main time comes on the weekends and last weekend I was laid low by pneumonia, from which I am still recovering. This weekend I'll be heading home to watch the Patriots play in the Super Bowl on my 21st birthday with my family! Only thing that could make the weekend better is if we win. :)

So I really shouldn't have, but I could not resist starting Bookworm Fairy, a Hannah Lynn Heaven and Earth Design. I have had the chart for a couple years but was too intimidated to start it before. I've decided to stitch it two over one on 18 count Aida. I used a Michael's gift card to partially kit it up over Christmas break. I'm still missing about 1/3 of the thread (including the color for that one stitch in the upper left corner), but I have enough to make a good start on this piece. I'm so excited to work on this piece! The colors are so lovely. :)
