Finally Some Progress on Athena




I finally have some progress to share on Athena. I spent today stitching her hair and adding all of these lovely beads and some Kreinik braid to her hair. Isn't she so stunning so far? I just love the effect that the beads and metallic threads give to the Mirabilia's. The faces always inspire me and this is why I always start with the face on a Mira.
Please visit my blog to see my Rose of Sharon finish.

  1. oh hon she is so beautiful! I should try starting with the face too. Maybe it would keep me more inspired. I have been so caught up in obligation stitching I have not had time for anything else. I am hoping to work on my Mira tomorrow.

  2. I always start with faces too. Love the effect of the beads and metallics - I always wait with those so it is nice to see a close up shot with them included. :)
