This was a freebie from my LNS.  The designer is Primitive Needle.  I stitched it on a pale gray 36 ct. linen.  I used all the recommended threads except I switched the Noir Belle Soie for Old Crow.

Book Blog

I'm working on starting a book blog.  It's in the infancy stages right now, but if you want to take a peek

From the TBR Pile

I've been remiss

I've had a couple of finishes

Please excuse the pictures. I realize they're really close up.

On the left is Just Nan's Strawberry Heart.  On the right is Sweetheart Tree's Lavender Blossoms Biscornu.

Lately I've been pulling some old WIPs out of the closet and doing some work on them...I have a great deal of shame over all the WIPs I have LOL

Pretty Pocket Winder Progress

My goal was to have this finished by the end of the weekend but I don't see that happening, but I have finished most of the stitching. I need to add the beads, there's only a few, and do the back stitching around each of the panels, then I can cut it out and finish it up. I'm hoping that aspect won't take too long!

The Next MiraRR

I've been pondering the next MiraRR since I feel like there's all this pressure on me to do it!!! I'm kidding y'all. I'm thinking the Big Ass Pixie Project wouldn't be appropriate because it would be too big to send around and secondly, I wouldn't have it ready to send assuming we're going to start this thing in like the next year or so. Soooo...I've been hatching a little idea of doing the 12 Days of Christmas. However, I'm not sure how to arrange them. They aren't all exactly the same size. They're a little bit bigger than the usual RR size, but they have a lot of blank space. Decisions, Decisions....

Hey...Yesterday was my 5 Year Blogaversary

5 Years...that deserves something eh? Let me think on it and put something together.

JBW Welcome

I finished this little kit from JBW. I've got some Mirabilia burn out right now. Instead of picking up any of my (bajillion) Mirabilia WIP I'm trying to do some little projects to gain a sense of accomplishment.

Along those lines is my start on Just Nan's Pretty Pocket Winder

Keep A Secret

I finished up this little Just Nan thingy. I made a color mistake at the end of the branches, but who cares? I wasn't gonna frog over one and who says there aren't trees with leaves that color?? I left off the ABC thing...that just didn't match in my opinion.

I also make this little scissor fob. There's something going on with the warp and weft of the fabric because it's not exactly even. I counted my backstitches repeatedly and they all lined up right so I think it has to do with the fabric and not with my backstitches. Regardless, I shall rejoice in the imperfections :) The pattern is Deux Fleurs I think from Doop Designs

I am still around

I've been working on the last round robin for the current Mirabilia Round Robin I'm in. If' I'd buckle down I'd be done with it, but I'm letting myself get distracted with all kinds of stuff. I've been daydreaming about doing all the Mirabilia Pixies "yearbook style". Just little portions of them all on one piece of fabric. I'm still in the planning phase. I'm starting to wonder if I'm not a little burnt out on Mirabilia right now though. I think once I get finished with the RR I'll find something else to sort of break things up while I'm still thinking about the pixies.

Anybody have any sort of input or fantastic ideas about the B.A.P.P. (Big Ass Pixie Project)?

2 Mirabilia Round Robins

I stitched Tigerlily on the bottom one. Both of these stitched up quickly. Just one more round on this Round Robin and it will be over.

Dancer Finished

I finished Dancer

And I finished Ink Circles' Fleur d'Orleans. I changed out the colors for Crescent Colors. And I didn't like the Soot, so I used dark blue in the purple areas and dark green in the green areas

Next up is Comet

I finished up Rudolph and I got a good start on Dancer. I haven't added the crystals yet. I'll do that when I've finised them all. I think these will stitch up a lot faster now that I'm getting the pattern kinda memorized.

Another RR finish

I stitched Circle of Friends and Sabrina for Jenn's RR.

I also got started on the much anticipated Rudolph, but I'm not finished yet.
