I'm Karen from Little Cat Blogs and I've just joined this blog. Thank you for the invite Kathy. I've been visiting you all for a while and drooling over your gorgeous projects.
I am a single mum to Riley who is three years old and I work three days a week. I had a big stitching slump in 2008 and 2009, but I'm out of that now and I stitch when I can fit it in - usually at weekend when I have more time as week days are hectic.
I have just finished my first Mirabilia - Magnolia.
She was stitched on Sparklies 'Slightly Summer' aida fabric and I changed the Kreinik to Treasure Braid which I find much easier to work with. The rest is as charted.
My next Mirabilia will be Mermaids of the Deep Blue. I had everything kitted up and ready to start last week, but I wasn't 100% sure of the fabric I'd chosed so I did a floss toss and took a photo for my blog. The comments left confirmed my thoughts that the fabric was too light so I'm currently waiting for a new piece to arrive so I can start them.
Nice to meet you all officially and I'm looking forward to working with you through my massive pile of Mira's over the next few years :o)
