Adia completed!

Adia the Garden Fairy from Mirabilia.  Stitched on 28 count Enchanted Queen from Polstitches.

Those leave at the bottom were killer, as I had to finish them with one hand entirely useless, since it is all wrapped up from my carpal tunnel surgery.  Will be bringing this girl to the Mira retreat next week, soooo excited!  Especially since I get the bandages off and the stitches out the day before the trip.  😀




Pretty Siren

Got my Siren back from the framer’s today (lovely job by Cathy at Needle Craft World!) and she will be heading to the state fair next month!

Siren & Shipwreck completed!

Love how that chandelier settled right over the only aqua spot on the fabric.  She’s so pretty!!



That…was a long time without stitching.  Kinda lost my mojo for a bit there.  However, I am trying to ease back into it and get this beauty done in time for the state fair.

Siren and Shipwreck from Mirabilia.  Top half complete!


Winter Fairy Completed!

And you never even knew I’d started her!  😀


My other recent project was organization of my fabric stash.  Until recently, it was stored in plastic tubs under my bed.  No fun for ogling! So instead, I picked up some packs of acid-free comic book backing boards which I wrapped each fabric piece around, then arranged by color on a handy bookshelf.  In doing so, I realized I have no red pieces in my stash…the horror!  😉  But this is so much more fun to look at than the stacks in the tubs.

Shakespeare’s Fairies Completed!


Love the way the skin turned out, but man it sure was a PITA to do!


This one will be going to the fair next week; fingers crossed for a ribbon. 🙂

Mirabilia Weekend retreat

In case you hadn’t heard, there will be a Mirabilia Minions Retreat in Greenville, SC on April 19-21.  Deadline to sign up is the end of this month.  And guess what?  Nora Corbett will be at the retreat too!

I plan to drive up myself, so if any of you wants to go, and is on the way from central Florida to Greenville, I’m happy to have you car pool with me!  Just send me a message.  🙂
