Blogs that make my day

Christine named my blog as a blog that makes her day. Thank you, Christine! :) Now it's my turn to name 10 blogs that make my day. I naturally like all the blogs I read, but here are ten of them. I can't remember who's already been nominated, but does it matter? :)
I read all sorts of blogs, but these are all craft blogs.

Finally, finally, finally! Titania is done. Ready. As in no more stitching or beading!! And she's pretty! And I'm way too excited to take a decent photo or wait for daylight. I want to show her off now :)

I started her ages ago. I've lost my notes on exactly when, but it says in my stash list that I got the chart in 2003... I know I didn't start immediately, though.

And below she's with Adia. I plan to frame them and hang them as a pair on our bedroom wall. I hope it happens soon :) Adia was, I think, my first "big" finish and she's been waiting patiently for Titania for 5 or 6 years (best not to think about it!).

Christine tagged me for a meme. I'll do that tomorrow!

I don't like my stitching at the moment. There. I said it. For one thing, there's not much actual stitching to do. Just beading, beading, beading.
Titania is stitched and I'm in the process of putting on the beads. And there's a lot of them. I've finished the stitching on Winter's Eve, ages ago, and am in the process of putting beads on it. And there's a lot of them there, too.

Then there's my Monday SAL, the above MVIII (Evening in the Park). And there's some beading left to do on the previous parts and the part I'm currently stitching is boring. Yes, I mean it, boring. I didn't want to say it, but I can't hide it anymore. The whole part uses just two colors. First I make the blue arrow-like things and then fill in the darker color. It looks great! But it bores me to tears. The above picture doesn't reflect the current state of the project. I've done a bit more, but still have one whole corner to do.

There is also Taj and while there would be lots of stitching to do here, there is also a bit of beading on part 1 left. And in any case, I don't feel comfortable starting a new piece or working on yet another one, when these are so close to being done...

So I haven't done much stitching. I have been knitting quite a bit, but it doesn't look like anything yet, so there's no picture.
