Mediterranean Mermaid

Stitching her on 25ct. Stormy Seas lugana from Polstitches.

Maxine's LOTM Progress

WOW finally I have stitched on one of my Mirabilia's wip's. Here is the pic of what she looked like before I made some more progress...
And here she is after a couple of days stitching....not much progress but she's staying on the scroll frame for a bit longer so hopefully I'll have some more to show before the end of the week :)

Thanks for reading and happy stitching, may the frogs be few and far between :)

Hi Everyone,

first sorry that I have been absent of late....much job stress. I have accepted a new position at work so I start that on July 6th, so am trying to clean things up here at work so I can finish my job next friday, then have a full week off.

I have been working a bit on Fairy Idyll but I plan to work on her over the weekend and will post an updated picture on monday or tuesday.

Everyone's progress has been lovely!

My Mirabilia RR

I'm in the same RR as Kathy and I've finally completed my piece and it'll go out in the mail Monday. In my block I stitched Lilac Pixie. My fabric is 28ct. Violets In The Shade lugana from the gone but not forgotten SMF.

Been a long time....

Well, it's been a while since I've posted, but the move is over so I will be much more regular from here on out.

Here's Christmas Flourishes. What's new are the two gold swoops along the bottom there.

Slowly but surely, she's progressing.

And holy cow, but would you look at the all the beautiful stuff you guys are doing! I'm really glad to see I'm not the only one still doing a Christmas theme, and I love Kathy's RR. Absolutely beautiful!

Update on Royal Holiday

Well, after a long absence, Royal Holiday is back. Although, you can't really see a lot, I have been stitching on her and have more of her dress and sash done. It is nice to work on her again. I aim to have her done in time to enter in the Yuma Fair in the spring, so I better keep those needles busy.

New Release

There is about to be a new Mirabilia design about to be is a mermaid. It is called Mediterranean Mermaid. You can see it here.

Progress on Sleeping Beauty

Working my way down the left side of the pattern :-) I realized that the color of the fabric matches DMC 926 perfectly.

I have been working on this,

This is my update so far. I'm only working on this one day a week., but it seems to be moving along!
It is a pleasure to do!

I've checked in and had a look at all of the stunning works out there....WOW.
You have all picked out some pretty Mira's.

I love Kathy A's RR. Isn't that a great idea?????
Awesome Kathy.

Stitch with happy fingers!

Hi there :D

First off I would like to say thank you so much to Kathy for letting me join this blog. I have been following Stitch a Mirabilia for a while and I am always so inspired by everyones progress pictures :D

I live in New Zealand with my DH Mike and our 5 little people (nearly 6) ranging in age from 14 to 17 months.

I do stitch other designers but mostly Mirabilia as I am a total Mira nut :D And have heaps of wips.

Recently I started Bluebeards Princess and I am really enjoying stitching her.

Here she is
