Mira RR update

Here’s what I just finished stitching for Debbie’s RR:

My first time using whisper thread, which was interesting.  I did backstitch skin in 1 strand instead of the 2 that was called for, because I thought it looked better.  And I substituted similar variegated threads for the Caron Waterlilies because I didn’t see the sense in buying a $4 skein for just a couple of stitches.

Really love the boxes Debbie used to outline in this piece, very dainty looking and pretty.

    She is gorgeous!! I agree with subbing in some threads. I can’t justify buying a whole skein for a few stitches, especially when I have one that I can use instead and it’ll look just as good.
