Mirabilia’s Summer Queen

Finished Friday 1/7/2011:

Fabric: 32-ct white jobelan

Started: Jan 2009

Took her to the LNS for framing today and this was the result:

The dark peacock blue mat is almost an exact match for the dark blue in her dress.  Love the swirls on the frame… they compare nicely to the beaded swirls on her ermine wrap.

And as promised…. Spring was started last night (while finishing off the first season of Mad Men):

2011 Stitching plans in the next post…. 🙂
