I finished block 1 of the Passione Ricamo Mystery Stitch A Long.
One and a half fish and some hair. Section 2 is due out on July 1, so I am very happy that I am finished section 1. I’ve seen a sneak peek of section 2 and there is about as much stitching as section 1, so I should be able to keep up with no problem.
I also started Mirabilia’s Siren and the Shipwreck.
She is being stitched on Sunny Dyes Under the Sea in 16ct Aida. I will have to take a photo of the full piece of fabric. Or you can see it at Sunny Dyes website. The bottom is hand painted. Love it! When I saw it I knew it was for Siren. This scroll frame has my lovely covers that Karen made for me. Isn’t she a sweetie? Here is a closer shot of my progress and what she will look like in the end:
That is what I have been up to. Thank you for visiting.

Ginny, you are just a stitching fool this week! And what lovely projects to work on. I love that you are doing the SAL on a pretty pastel. It looks wonderful on that fabric. Your Siren is going to be drop dead gorgeous too!
Thank you, Johanna. I have actually snuck in quite a bit of stitching and I am so happy 🙂
Oh my geez Ginny you’ve been busy!! It took me forever to catch up on everything that you’ve been doing and I love seeing all of your work. I’m extremely jealous of all of your fabrics and find myself wanting more for the little collection that I have. I think that all of your works are beauties and want to one day be able to get my really good works professionally framed.
I’m also wondering where you find your SALs and how you get involved in those. I think that would be awesome to do for when I get burned out on what I’m doing the majority of the time.
I like your solution for holding the fabric too. I have mine on my rods and lap frame and while it’s not as taut as I would like it’s something I’ve become used to.
Another beauty to watch in progress!
Thank you Miss Marsha. She is going to be a beauty. Wait til you see the next pic of the fabric I am stitching her on. Beautiful!
Thanks K.Marie. I am always busy 🙂 I am looking forward to catching up with you and visiting you again. The SAL that I am participating in is my first. It is Passione Ricamo’s Mystery SAL and you can find it http://www.passionericamo.eu/page2ingl.htm It was originally only open until June 14, but has since be re-opened until July 30. The US cost is about $17 and you will receive a section of the piece by email through-out the months of June-November. Go and check it out. It might be something you want to try.
Wow – great stitching and that fabric is AMAZING! Looking forward to further updates.
Thank you, Christien. I’ll post a better picture of the bottom later this week. I am enjoying stitching on it.
