Mirabilia Sabrina

I'm happy to be working on her again, she had become a ufo for a while. The sandcastle jobelan that she's stitched on was very difficult to see. I've started using magnifier glasses, which has made the process so much easier! There's really not too much more to stitch on her.

Update on Esme

She's coming along. I've mostly been working on the background. She's really beautiful in person.

Esme update and 2 new Mirabilias!

I'm still working on the beautiful Esme, the background is really tough, I made the mistake of stitching it on a fabric that's almost the same color as the background. Oh well, too late to change it now. 
I was feeling a need for a new start and had some gorgeous new Polstitches fabrics to play with. 
So I decided to start Moon Maiden on opal Serenade. Gorgeous colors! It's always a nice break to work on a Mirabilia, they're so nice and easy.
And finally, for good measure, I also started an old favorite Fairy Flora. She's on opal Blue Breeze.

Dolce Far Niente, 40 pages done!!

I finished stitching two more pages. The one rounding out her hip was fine, but the one in the upper left corner(branches and leaves) was a confetti nightmare. It took longer than any other page so far. I'm aiming to hit 50 pages soon, maybe sometime this summer. That will be the halfway point.

Esme- new project from Este

I started this project on April 12. Este is fast becoming one of my favorite cross stitch companies. They do superb conversions from paintings. This will be my 3rd large project from them. If you are interested, have a look around their online store!

*Almost* 38 page a done

I got bogged down in the leaves and flowers in the top left of the picture. So I decided to take a break and work on a different part for a while. So I'm slowly but surely closing in on the halfway point, which is 50 pages (give or take). 😃
Here's what she will look like finished.

Update on Dolce and small new start

Still working on Dolce Far Niente and making good progress. 

I started a small piece from Este, which I call Little Lady. It's actually a detail of a larger picture. She is being tent stitched on 25 count. The second picture is what she will look like finished.

Happy Dance!!!

Finished Cat and Mouse for my daughter. She loves it and can't wait to go get it framed. It took about 4 months, while working on other things also. It's tent stitched on 25 count lugana.
