I finished section 15 of the PR SAL#4 on Saturday night. So excited because the new and last section came out on Monday morning. I will probably pull her out tonight to start stitching the last section. On Sunday I pulled out this one to stitch on:
This one is PR SAL#2. I didn’t get to put too many stitches on her because I was so tired both Saturday and Sunday nights. I even tried last night and just so tired. I’m hoping It’s just my body still recovering from surgery. This week will be 6 weeks, and I was told it would take my internal body about 6 weeks to recover. So hopefully soon I can get back to my late night stitching 😉 I didn’t realize how much I missed this project until I started stitching on it. Even though it is 28ct, it seems like a breeze stitching on it. It must be the lighter fabric. We shall see if I put this one away to stitch on the other or if I continue on with this one…
What are you stitching on these days?
I picked this beauty up from the framer’s a couple of weeks ago and just haven’t gotten around to taking pictures and posting. But she is already hanging in my dining room. She now resides in the place that Galatea used to hang and Galatea is on another wall in the dining room, in place of a piece of art that hubby did not like. I have to say, his choices are perfect! Siren looks great where she is and Galatea is perfect in her new spot. This piece turned out so wonderfully!
Just look at the sparkle on that chandelier!
LOVE all the beads! This is an awesome chandelier!
And just look at that marvelous fin!!
And such a sweet, sweet face!
The frame was actually behind the counter at Stitches N Things. After looking at several frames, LouAnn whipped this one out and I knew it was the one! So perfect! I love the black in between the 2 different moldings; it really brings out her hair and makes the blue of the fabric pop! So happy with this one and so glad she is hanging on the wall for me to enjoy every time I walk through the dining room.
Stats: Siren and the Shipwreck by Mirabilia.
Fabric is Under The Sea by Sunny Dyes and is 16ct Aida
Framing done by Juanita from Way Cool Mats through Stitches N Things.
So…what is your happy finish?
Section 14 is finished! And just look at that mermaid tail! Wow! Just gorgeous. I have just started section 15, and I am hoping to get it finished before section 16 comes out on May 23rd. That section will finally reveal her face! So excited!
So what are you up to on this Monday?
I found a new home for all of my Mirabilis and Nora Corbett patterns. And what is so great is that it matches my trunk that holds my hand dyed fabrics. You can see that post here. I have all of my Mirabilis patterns on the left and all the Nora Corbett patterns on the right. There are a few patterns in the back that are in bags with a fabric that I chose to stitch on. If I take the bagged patterns out (and maybe stitch them some day) I will have a little more room to grow my pattern stash 😉 I love being able to flip through all the patterns and remind myself of what I have yet to stitch.
I also have a cute smaller box.
In this one I am keeping my bead packs for some of the Mirabilis and Nora Corbett patterns that I have.
I love these boxes. I purchased them at Joann Fabrics. They are quite pricy, so 40% and 50% coupons really helped.
Seeing these beautiful boxes all stacked up and organized inside makes me happy :). What is your favorite way to organize?
Last week I finished section 13 of the Passione Ricamo SAL #4. I am feeling much better after my surgery and am able to stitch on my scroll frames once again. I stitched like crazy on this section so I can get caught up. I’ve been working on section 14 this week and am just about finished. I will post pictures soon. Section 15 was released over the weekend, so I have more catching up to do. This is a busy time of year for me as Stampin’ Up! Is nearing the end of the catalog year, so I am pulling retired stamps and accessories and getting ready for new product. My craft room is a mess! Tomorrow is Mega Meet, an awesome scrapbook convention. I will be going there to see what new stuff I can’t live without ;). I am also trying to squeeze some scrapbook time in. So, that is what I have been up to. What are you up to this time of year?
