She is finished....
This is my Mirabilia White Christmas.
I'm so proud that I stuck to my guns and got her finished today with 6 hours in 2009 left over...LOL.
The beads and treasures are amazing...Thanks again to Christin for gifting them to me in the spring.
I added Swarovski Crystals instead of the millhill beads in the windows...just a bit more bling for me!!
Thank you for sharing your works with me I will keep looking in .
Who knows maybe another Mira in the making.
I do have a Mira RR on the go when I get it back I'll post it to show you.
Have a safe and warm holiday and stitch with happy fingers.

Both Annette and Missy Ann have chosen the Pixies.
On Annette's I stitched Iris.
And here is her RR to date.
On Missy Ann's I stitched Fern.
And here is her RR to date.
Check out the borders on this one. Each is bordered in Kreinik and beads to match the pixie in each block.
I have been checking the blog and love all the beautiful stitches I see.
Keep on stitching.
I am hoping to spend some quality time with Royal Holiday once I finish a gift.

I have all of the DMC stitching done. Now the rest is Wisper,beads and treasures.
The area in her shawl is going to be the Wisper... My next step. Then the beads!
I'm hoping to have her finished by the end of the year...Wish me luck.
We'll see how my time works out with the holidays.
I want to wish all of my friends out there in the stitching blogger world the best for the Holidays.
Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.
Thank you for your inspiration and friendship.

I am thrilled with how it came out and really wish my name started with a G so I had an excuse to keep it! It's now on it's way to it's new home. This was a joy to stitch on and my sister, after seeing the finished product has requested I stitch one for my niece so I'll be starting Letter C in the New Year. Letter C will be her Sweet Sixteen birthday gift so I have until August to stitch, frame and send. I'm also hoping to *finally* make a real start on Fairy Moon on NYE. We'll see if that actually happens. lol
There are more photos of the framing on my blog.

The fairy is done on a light olive green linen which really brings out the yellows in her dress. I have started the wings and I am blending the colors with a holosheen embroidery thread (for the machine) but it really adds to the translucency of her wings.

Here is my contribution to Jenn's RR.
Jenn has asked for children or fairies.
I chose one of the little angels from Crystal Christmas. I love this piece so much I may have to stitch it for myself.
Here is her RR to date.

This is Kaye's Mirabilia RR. The lighting is not the best... the fabric is a very pretty sky blue opal. I stitched the right side mermaid from Mermaids of The Deep Blue. I really wish it had photographed better, the beads are very sparkly and pretty in person.

I live in a really small country village some 40 km away from Turin, Italy, where I study environmental engineering.
I've always loved all the Mirabilias since I first saw one, but just recently started my first, which is Forest Goddess. I'm stitching it on 32ct Lugana from Silkweaver, the color is Dusk.
I'ts now parked since I've got a couple of seasonal stitches and gifts that I've got to complete by the end of September, but then I'll work back on her again-
I'd like to start Royal Holiday soon too, but it seems that my beads and metallic threads (also those for Forest Goddess) got lost in the mail, I hope they'll arrive soon!
That's all for now!

Finally my Ink Circles Peregrinations is finished. I started in January of this year and finished this morning on 11 August 2009. I chose a rose colored background and changed my threads accordingly. The threads are actually hand dyed pearl cotton and the background threads are DMC.

finally am back here.....and back to Fairy Idyll. I started doing some beading last night on FI and looks like I will do some more today if the sun doesnt start shining soon.
Been at my new job for a month now, but managed to pick up some extra work on the side so I invested in a new Notebook computer which means I can get online at home and also get my photos of FI on here again. So I will take a picture later on tonight when I finish some more beading and hopefully have something for you all to look at later.
happy stitching and hope everyone who has tomorrow off enjoys the day. It is a holiday for us in Ontario.

You can see my Mirabilia box in the upper left side!! :] This is where I keep my charts and threads and beads and fancy scissors and notes! Waiting for my next RR piece now... This whole pile is on the edge of my chaise lounge...so nobody can use it. :)
Keep in touch everyone! Hugs, Deb
