Mirabilia Round Robin

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.

Hi everyone!

I'm Valentina, and first of all I have to thank Kathy for letting me join the blog.

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!

Ink Circles Peregrinations

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.
Next Phd (Project Half Done) is my Mirabilia Fairy.

August and a long weekend

HI everyone,

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.
