What am I up to in January 2012?

Well I continue to work away on Christmas Flourishes by Mirabilia. I started this piece in early November 2011 - and I have diligently worked away at it - probably 2 hours a day on average minimum for two months.  I am proud of this piece - its the biggest I have undertaken and my fifth Mira. It is stitched on 28 Count Opalescent Lugana in Mystery Blue.

What is next? Well I am happy to say I am joining my first RR (round robin) and its Mirabilia Themed.  It has 8 participants and we are all very excited. I am going to stitch mine on 28 count Bo Peep Lugana - here is a photo of my "concept" - which is themed "Moments that make you take a deep breath".... The patterns chosen from top left to right are "Stargazer", "The Kiss", "Christmas Elegance", "Mothers Arms" bottom left to right "Circle of Friends", "Lilly of the Woods", "Madonna of the Garden" and "Rose Celebration". The font used is from "Nouveau Sampler"

I can't wait to start my next project which will be Mirabilia's Golden Girl Apples.

    1. I didn't even know you had a blog until now. I love your progress on Christmas Flourishes (don't you love how she has no legs behind her streams of ribbons, lol). I can't wait to see how your rr develops.
