Queens

Autumn Queen


It feels like a blustery fall day today, so I thought I would share my Autumn Queen with you.

She is a Mirabilia pattern and she is quite regal.  I love the blues and the purples and the beading is in the perfect places.  I love the snood her hair is in.  I stitched her up in 2000 on 16 count White Aida.  I am not a big fan of matts, but the Queens seem to need it as their dresses are cut across the bottom into a straight edge.

You can see all of Nora Corbett’s Mirabilia designs here. I see that yesterday, April 15, 2012, Wichelt released a new Mirabilia entitled “Santa”.  I have never stitched a Santa.  I think this one has just been added to my list of “have to stitch”.  He is a jolly Santa.  Go check it out by clicking on the Mirabilia link above.  Let me know what you think about him.
