Stitching along..


It’s been a couple of  weeks  since I last posted about my progress on Mirabilia’s August Fairy.  So here is where I am at:

I am really enjoying stitching on this one even though I have had many frogs visit.  The last week has been much better as my mind is more at ease.  The colors are just beautiful on this piece, but there is a lot of black.  I know it will be beautiful when it’s done and my Mom will love it.  Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.  Have a great day and happy stitching.

Fabric

Oh what pretties!


Look what arrived in my mailbox:

I ordered these fabrics from Picture This Plus during their 25% off sale in July.  They are so BEAUTIFUL!!  They are all 16ct-my favorite fabby to stitch on.  And all of the edges were serged for me so they are all ready to go when I decided what I want to put on them.  Isn’t that awesome? And each fabric was tagged with the name of the color, the count, the dimensions and the cost. I am so impressed.   This is my first time ordering from them and I was quite pleased.  A bit anxious waiting the 6 weeks to get them because of their huge sale, but well worth the wait.  I will be ordering from them again in the future.  Now to decide what to stitch on them…

Angels · Nativity

Marbek Nativity


While re-organizing my cross stitch patterns and going through bins of “stash” last weekend, I came across this:

This is the left panel of a 5 panel nativity scene that I started back in 1993.  WOW!  I remember that I had to do this piece twice.  I chose some fabric to do this shepherd boy on and when I went back to get more fabric for the next piece, that fabric had been discontinued.  WHAT??  So I purchased all of the fabric for all 5 panels, all of the krenik threads and specialty threads all at once.  And here it is 18 years later and I still don’t have all of it finished.  I do have 2 other panels finished:

I loved stitching this one.  All of those different threads.  And just look at those little tassels!  So cute!  And this next piece I finished about 3 years ago:

This is a nice colorful piece and I love the angel.  I just hope that when I get it finished (and I will get it finished) that the special frame kit will still be available.  When I finished the angel piece above, I was told at my LNS that she could still get the frame kit.  Another project on my long list of projects to finish.

Fairies · Mirabilia Round Robin

Isn’t it Lovely?


Kathy just finished stitching on my Round Robin and posted this photo:

Isn’t it just beautiful?  I am so geeked about my first Round Robin.  One more block to be stitched by Linda and then she will be on her way home to me.  I can’t wait to see it in person.  I sent it off in January 2012 to be stitched by 7 wonderful stitchers from around the world and it should be returning to me around November.  I just melt every time I look at it.  I know that it is sparkly and shimmery with all the metallic threads and beading.  Everyone has done an awesome job stitching on this one for me.  And I know that Linda will do an awesome job on the last fairy too and can’t wait to see her contribution .  I will be sure to post here when I get it back .

Mirabilia Round Robin

Another Round Robin finish


I finished my block on Erin’s Round Robin this last week and thought I would share with you what I did:

Her theme is Roses and she picked the patterns that she wanted and chose the portions of the pattern that she wanted stitched. I like that.  Made it super simple for me.  I chose “The Kiss” and I think it turned out lovely.  Here is her Round Robin so far:

A very unique piece.  Can’t wait to see how it turns out when the last 2 blocks are stitched.

My  Round Robin piece is coming along so beautifully!  I will try to get a picture and post it here so that you can see.  Have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.
