Hello, Hello!

Hello Everyone! Last week, I was stumbling along in blogland and came across this little spot of Mirabilia heaven. I asked Kathy if she would let me join and she graciously obliged. Thanks Kathy! Anyways, I thought I would introduce myself to everyone even though I notice some familiar names here. My name is Valerie and I am from San Francisco, CA. A beautiful town which is currently under an annoying but much needed veil of rain. I've been stitching since I was a little girl (7) when my mom showed me how. I kind of suspect she was looking for a way to get me out of her hair so she could get some rest and her tactics worked since I've been hooked on cross stitch ever since. Of course, my addiction ebbed and flowed through school and has geared back up again over the last few years. I am still working through obligation stitching and other projects but I have two Mirabilias to start this year. One is Fairy Moon with my supplies pictured below! I was supposed to start this in February of last year and I got sidetracked and barely put any stitches in it so this will be attempt number 2! I can't wait to start it...again!
The other Mirabilia project will be Letter G ~ Gwendolyn as a gift. I hope to start Fairy Moon sometime in March so in the meantime, I will relish in seeing how everyone is progressing on their beautiful Mirabilias!



  1. Hello Valerie and welcome to our blog. We will do our best to keep you motivated.

  2. Welcome and can't wait to see some progress pics!!!

  3. welcome Valerie. Fairy moon is another of my favorites. My friend Ann stitched it and it is absolutely gorgeous!
