Stitching finishes....

Here are my 2013 finishes that I haven't yet posted.... enjoy!

Let's start with my Nora Corbett Pixies

Gardenia on Blue Hydrangea by Crafty Kitten Fabrics (not a good representation of actual colour of fabric)

Blue Bell on Evening Sky by Crafty Kitten 
Next up is my Round Robin work that I did. I was in a group of four - the theme was Mirabilia/Nora Corbett "Large Stitch". Each block was 5000 stitches.

Nora Corbett - Santa's Sleigh. I did 1/2 of this. The final product was the sleigh with all the reindeer.

My finished round robin - I chose four beautiful ladies. Top left: Villa Mirabilia, Top right: Lady Hera, Bottom Left: Crystal Elegance Bottom Right: Athena

I also managed to finish 1 full Mirabilia - Queen Mermaid. Here she is - but I want to dedicate a full post to her later with more detailed photos:

Also one more Mira to show you. This is a cameo from Le Nouveau Sampler. It is a gift for John's grandmother:

Finally, I did manage to complete some non-Mirabilia stitching: 

This is now a wall hanging - my mom did do the finishing work for me....

There you have it. Those are the finished pieces. I have several work in progresses (WIPS) and I will start sharing them now that I'm back into writing.
