I have finished At the Met by Mirabilia. She is stitched on 32 ct. PTP Storm. My DH looked at her and announced that she looks just like Phyrne Fisher from the Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries so I am going to call her Phryne.
Her whole sash is edged with beads
The edge of the dress is all beaded
So remember I said in my last post there is a crap load of beads? Just check out the pictures. They do not even show all the beads. So glad to be done with her.
I was going to start Raven Queen but I think I need a break from the big stuff and need to do a little piece instead.
I'm now putting on the beads for At the Met. I love Mirabilia designs, but I cringe when I start doing the beading. That's when I ask myself why do I do this to myself???? I know it will turn out beautiful, it just that it's a crap load of beads!
This is just her headdress. Wait until I get to the skirt of her dress. I may run amuck.
It's 93 degrees outside! So I'm staying inside. I finally finished the stitching on the corner square of the Faces SAL by Joan Elliott. I only have the beading to do but I'm doing all of those last. One more square to do and it will all be done. So, here is the picture of the bottom corner.
I finished stitching Cats and Pumpkins by Erica Michaels and finished it into a box frame. Yes, I actually finished something completely. It is not sitting in a drawer somewhere. I took out the glass so I could take picture with out any reflections.
To show you how small this is I took a picture with a penny next to it. It is stitched on 40 ct. silk gauze.
