Peony progress

Happy July everyone. Summer has been kind to me so far. I haven't been doing a lot of stitching per say - but a lot of planning, kitting and organizing. I can say after two long weekends away I have finished the stitching on Peony - well as much as I can for the moment. I am still missing some kreinik to finish the wing - it is on order at my local needle shop and I don't have my beads on hand - that will be a treat for later on this week.  So here she is for now:

She is stitched on 28 count Apricot Blush by Crafty Kitten.  So much prettier than this picture shows.  I love this colour fabric.

So what is next for me? I have a RR block to finish - the RR in my possession right now is a pixie RR and I think I am just going to do the Lavender block because I have the materials on hand.  My mother has also taken a great interest in my stitching and has asked me to do a Told In A Garden piece for her called Farmer's Market - this is a companion piece to the one I finished for her called Bird in Hand.  I also ordered all the materials for Dressmaker's Daughter! How completely exciting. I just feel like I have so much stitching to do! I can't wait to get started on something new!

I also wanted to point out my new tag on the left - It says Mira Minion.  What is a Mira Minion you ask? It's a little fun thing we came up in my Facebook group: Mirabilia Designs - Nora Corbett.  When the last design was released we realized that we were a little obsessive - or minion like.  Here is the definition: minion is a follower devoted to serve his/her master relentlessly. Okay - yup that is us. So therefore we decided to brand ourselves with it. I love Nora and all her work and I am happy to call myself a Mira Minion. 


  1. Absolutely lovely!!!!! I too am a "Mirabilia Minion"!!!!! I love reading your blog!!!!!! As soon as I finish my current Mirabilia....Dressmaker's Daughter is next!!!!!!

  2. Mira Minion... Definitely appropriate name ^.^ Peony looks great. She certainly has a big a** skirt for a pixie so small :P
