Savannah's Curtsy

I also began a new start on Oct 15th....Savannah's Curtsy!  I am working on Buttercreme 40ct linen over two. Has anyone else stitched this one?

This is what I have done so far and I will be updating it daily on my blog....Will post a pic when I'm all done!

A Frame and A New Start

I am really happy with how Mediterranean Mermaid's frame and mats turned out.  It has 2 mats, the top being suede and has a specialty cut in the corners.  The frame itself is a silverish tone with embellishments on it.  I love my framer, this only cost me $106...seriously, no joke. (I always choose from the less expensive frames and always choose regular glass so I save money there).

On October 15th I started Venetian Opulence.  This one is being stitched on 28 count Crossed Wing Collection's lugana, the color is Blueberry.  Unfortunately, there is no opalescent in this one.  I waited so long for Silkweaver to correct their error on my other piece of fabric meanwhile waiting to start MotD and nothing ever showed and since I am not sure if I want to use the original fabric they sent me or not and not wanting to wait a long time for a fabric order, I decided to order something from 123stitch.  Their service is incredibly fast, I received this order in 2 days.  They don't have any opalescents though.  This piece, Venetian Opulence, is going to be a portrait and not the entire design.

Forest Goddess Happy Dance!!!

Finally my first Mirabilia is done

Forest Goddes by Mirabilia
32 ct Lugana By Silkweaver in Dusk
DMC floss and Mill Hill Beads as listed
02/2008 - 10/2011

It's been a loooong journey, mainly because I could't decide wheter stitch her skin over 1 or over 2, tried both a couple of time, and in the end I thought she'll look good enough with over 2 skin.
She's not exactly like the chart, a lot of errors here and there but I think not even I will be able to see them now.
I've got a lot of wips to work on right now but I'll try to finish JGF by the end of the year.
