April’s Blue Diamond (Updated)

April’s Blue Diamond (Updated)

I picked up April’s Blue Diamond from the framer, and of course, I’m very pleased with the final piece. April’s Blue Diamond was stitched on Hand-Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie, Storm, 28-ct Jobelan, 2 over 2.  Normally, I would list my framing cost here, but I won’t in this case, because it’s a gift. This time … Continue reading

April’s Blue Diamond

April’s Blue Diamond by Mirabilia (Nora Corbett) The mystery gift reveal is finally here.  I’m sure any Mirabilia/Nora Corbett fan figured this one out ages ago.  I really don’t think that the person for whom this gift is intended knows about my blog, so I don’t think she’ll see it.  Besides, I never mentioned who … 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

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

Tigerlily

Tigerlily by Nora Corbett (Mirabilia) I’ve finished the third pixie of the five that I want to complete.  As with Bluebell and Water Lily, I really enjoyed stitching this project. I did have a tiny slow down while stitching the bottom portion of the dress, because there was a bit of confetti stitching, but the … Continue reading

Water Lily (Updated)

Water Lily (Updated)

Water Lily is the last of the projects I had framed and picked up over the weekend.  As with Bluebell, I am excited about the end result.  I think the frame and mat chosen suits this project just as much as it suits Bluebell.  I am in love with it.  I’m already looking forward to … Continue reading
