Mirabilia RR complete!

A Queen Mermaid block for Rachel.

My Prairie Schooler start:

I blame this on Stewey’s recent post on Spinster Stitcher, by the way 🙂

Two Finishes

I did finish Boo Club during my vacation last week.

I wanted to press before it made its blog debut…. but well….

Imagine it without wrinkles. Please. (Click to biggify)

I used mostly the fibers called out.  Mostly.  For some reason I didn’t have the WDW Taffeta, so I used the DMC equivalent (3740).  Border is done in black and white Anchor, not the WDW Mascara and Whitewash.

I took a few liberties with the Ghost block:

I changed the colors for the words, the small border below and moved the buttons.  They were supposed to be bat bodies.  Thanks to a counting mistake, they became eyes 😉

It will get pressed before I take it to the framer’s this weekend.  Really.

Here’s the second finish:

LHN’s Fa La La. 

I changed the DMC for the hair on the left girl, but I don’t think the color changed noticeably (838 instead of 801).  Yes, there’s a bit of a muck up on the left (if you notice).  I had all the leaves except the bottom two bunches done and there was no way I was frogging it all…

Back to the Mirabilia RR. I did make progress last week, but she’s not quite ready for mailing.
