Fairy Flora's Wings are Completed

 Fairy Flora by Mirabilia
I am so relieved and happy to have the second wing accomplished!  Although it is hard to tell in the photo, the wings are filled with a metallic blend along with the floss.  The blending filament used in the wings caused this part to be a bear.  Word of advice: find an alternative to kreinik blending filament anytime it is called for in a chart you are stitching.  Almost every strand of blending filament breaks whilst stitching with it, even short strands and threading the needle with it is a test of patience.  Even the beading was a breeze in comparison.  Now that this part is accomplished, the rest is going to be smooth sailing.

The fabric is 32 count Silkweaver Reflections on lugana.  The color is called Enchantment.


  1. GORGEOUS!!! I love this fairy :D

  2. Nice work there Tracy. Those wings do look brutal. Have you tried Thread Heaven?

  3. Your piece is looking fabulous! I love your fabric choice. I stitched this piece back in 1995. It was one of my first few Mirabilia's stitched. The wings were a bugger, but the results are beautiful. I have a light shining on her in my living room and the metallic thread and beads just shine like stars! You will love it when it is finished. Can't wait to see your finished piece on that gorgeous fabric.
