Let It Snow, Snowmen ABC

Let It Snow, Snowmen ABC

With all the snow that’s been falling the last couple of days, it seems fitting that I post about wintery snowmen.  🙂 I volunteered to do some quick stitches for my friend.  The theme is Snowmen ABC (designed by Ursula Michael).  As you can probably guess, it’s the alphabet with each letter displayed on a … Continue reading

Caprice

Caprice by Nora Corbett (Mirabilia) A finish!  I finally have a finish.  It’s been a very long time.  I guess forgetting my current project at work last weekend was a good thing. It forced me to pick up this WIP and work on the beading, which by the way, took FOREVER! Enjoy the close-ups! On … Continue reading

Holly (Updated)

I picked up both Holly and Poppy at the same time, but I opted to have them featured on separate posts to keep up with the theme of the blog. I’m very happy with Holly’s outcome.  In the last progress post for Holly, I mentioned that I noticed an error after I submitted her for … Continue reading

Holly by Nora Corbett (Mirabilia) Another finish for 2013.  Just in time for Christmas!  I’m very happy with Holly.  I love how she turned out, and she was fun to stitch.

Evening Primrose (Update)

I picked up Evening Primrose from the framer’s this weekend, and I’m pleased with the outcome.  As usual, he did not disappoint.  The waiting time for the frame did not take long, because he had pre-ordered the frame I needed.  Nothing like a quick turnaround! Evening Primrose was stitched on Sugar Maple Fabrics, Wyvern, 28-ct … Continue reading

Lyrical (Updated)

Picked up Lyrical from the framer’s this weekend.  I’m so happy with the outcome.  I have no complaints about the service I’m getting from him. Of course, I am giving him lots of business with all my projects this year, so I would expect nothing but the best.  😉 Here’s Lyrical all framed. And this … Continue reading

Lyrical by Nora Corbett (Mirabilia) I finished Lyrical over the weekend, and I am so happy with the final outcome.  I have to comment that the beads really made all the difference in this project for me.  She really pops and comes to life with the beads. This time around, I stood the beads upright … Continue reading
