Bothy Threads Cut Thru SAL Update 3

It's the last day of April. Tonight is (a legend) the Fairy's Ball. At midnight on April 30th which is May 1st, it is said that the Fairy's have a Ball to welcome Spring. 
Yesterday (Monday) I was to stitch on my Bothy Threads on Monday. Well....Thank goodness I stitched some on Sunday. Yesterday was 95 degrees here in Northern California. Our central air conditioner didn't work. Called our friend who came over and we ended up needing a new board part. Anyways it's still not fixed as of today. The new board is in, we know the cooler part works (when jumped by crossing some wires, what you are not suppose to do) but still is not working. So last early evening (our days hottest hours) I fled our VERY HOT HOUSE (fans were on in every room but only to blow very hot air around). Yep I went to visit my Nannie (grandmother 99yrs old) her home was COOL. I don't do well with heat when I cannot get cool.
So here is my progress and where I stopped for this week on Fairy Hill.

 Another one of my moms Tinkerbell's:)

 There is the blue thread stitched (that I decided to use after asking you for your advise). This photo doesn't show it very well. But in person it does looks good.
 Why the fabric looks Grey instead of Blue in this photo?????
The lighting I guess - lol.
Left  heart is stitched in DMC 3807 (Is what I decided to use instead of 793) and Right heart is the called for thread DMC 793 in the pattern. 3807 is what I'm using. Thank you to every one for your suggestions regarding the blue thread. I truly appreciate it very much.
Today was much cooler than yesterday. 85 degrees and lots of winds. I am also stitching on 2 other projects. Mom's sampler and one other I hope to share with you next time. Welcome to some new followers, and thank you to all for leaving comments.
With Love and Appreciation - Annette

Another cute Tinkerbell. So glad you found a solution to the blue thread that made you happy. Your stitching is coming along nicely.

I'm so glad you found a cool place to spend the day/evening! I don't do well with high heat like that either.

Your mom's Tinkerbell makes me smile! :)

The stitching is so colorful and I love that Annette ;-))
What a difference in the world, here in the Netherlands it's to cold for the spring we are waiting for more sun!

We have looking the hole day TV on the day of the coronation of our new King. It was ecxiting and the new Queen was breathtaking in her royal blue dress!!The 3 little princesses are so cute ;-))

Oh my gosh - 95°, that's unbelievable for me as we are still at the beginning of spring and most of our days are grey and rainy and sometimes even cold. I can't stand 95° without air conditioning either.
Very nice progress on your project.

Fairy Hill looks so pretty! The blue strip looks great next to the white stripes. I'm looking forward to seeing all the different Tinkerbells.

I added your photo to the SAL page.
