Hello Again

Hello Again everyone, it's been a while since I last posted here. I was very busy stitching autumn queen and will soon post an updated picture. Currently I am working on the whisper white and I am really hating it honestly. I have to work in short lengths so that the thread doesn't fray and it takes a long time to finish off the sections. I do love the metallics and the beads though, they glitter and glimmer so much that it makes the whole queen look so rich and regal :) 

Can't wait to finish it off and start winter so that I will have all the set finished up :)

See you all again ladies,

Update on Autumn Queen

Hello everyone. I came back to share with you my latest update on Autumn Queen. She is coming out really nice. I am leaving the metallics, beads and whisper white for last hence a lot of missing sections but the other colours are looking really great. It is so much more beautiful than the picture on the advert :)

Then apart from this lovely lady I am also working on a pattern called China. I have 16 colours missing though and just finished off the lower left corner (missing just 3 colours). I am sharing a picture of it as well even if it is not a Mirabilia :)

Autumn Queen

Hello Everyone  I am back with a picture of my progress on Autumn Queen as promised earlier on...  I was working on two more projects this week which are not related to Mirabilia, one is a keychain design by SODA if I am not mistaken (as I got pattern from a friend) and the other one is Cottage enchantment by Dimensions.  I have missing colours though and can't finish either of then completely.  Even though these works are not Mirabilia related I will add pictures of the finished projects later on when I do get to the finish line :) In the mean time here is our lovely Queen. I am having a little trouble with colours having two symbols, I can't find any relevant info that explains why. If anyone has already done Autumn I would appreciate your help.

Cya :))

Autumn Queen by Mirabilia

Hello everyone, I am back after a long while.. I started working on Autumn Queen on 24th February and am progressing quite nicely... shall be adding a picture at the end of this week. This looks like it's going to take a lot of time to finish with all the speciality threads and beads incorporated and I also noticed that there are some colours which have two symbols. I have asked quite a number of people about it but nobody seems to know whether there is a difference. Apparently Nora puts two different symbols according to the surrounding symbols so that they show up against the rest but it is just a theory. I am stitching the colours as they appear and since there are no specific directions as to the double symbols I am going to work both of them in the same way. So far it is looking good but you can't tell what it is. Hopefully by the end of this week it will show a few hints of the queen :)

See you all next friday... have a nice week

Hello again, it's been a long while since my last post.  I am very happy to announce that I finally finished all stitching on Summer Queen and am beading her as I speak.. While I was waiting for supplies to come over (ran out of beads )  I finished a small project called Blue Oriental Lady.. not a Mira but I will post a little pic of her as well..... Hope to finish all beading by the end of this week :)

Hello everyone, it has been a long while since my last post. I wish you all the very best new year you can ever have, let's all make it a better one than the last.

I will soon post an update on Summer Queen, right now I am working on her head, and backstitching. Progress is a little slow because of the colour changes in her hair but I am getting there.  Then the plans for this year are to finish a little geisha I have started for my Mum, and a Honda Del Sol I am doing for my fiance. This is actually his car, took me already 1 year and 6 months of work, I am really hoping to finish it off by Valentine's at least. In the mean time I am waiting for the beads for Summer Queen so that I can complete it and before starting off with Autumn Queen, I have two kissing fairies (nothing to do with Mirabilia though) that Mum wants finished before anything else gets started. You see she had bought me Day Fairy, Night Fairy and the Kiss some 10 yrs ago and I only finished off Day fairy, which is a little bit of a disgrace from my part... don't you think?! Well anyhow, that is the plan for till end of April hopefully. I will be showing you whay I am up to on these other projects as well.

Anyways, I will catch up with you next Friday with a stitched up Summer Queen (beadless).

Till then, take care :)
