My timing is perfect for this month’s WIPocalypse post! I have TWO…yes, TWO Happy Dances to share! And both from the WIPocalypse list
First – my long neglected Mirabilia Round Robin from 2011. It came home needing only Queen Mermaid stitched.
You would think I could get right on that, yes? Unfortunately, this makes the *third* time I have stitched QM on a Mira RR and I can definitively state I will never stitch the whole piece. I did change her beads a bit to be ornery, but now that it’s all done, I’m so glad she’s there
The mermaids are stitched on Star Sapphire Jobelan and the borders were done in SNC’s Warlock Road.
For the second finish…. Little House Needleworks Sea to Shining Sea:
I was drawn to this design for the palm tree and saguaro cactus there on the left and once *those* were done, it languished in the WIP pile until this year. It’s stitched on natural Belfast linen with the Crescent silks included with each of the designs. (this is pre-Belle Soie).
The only intentional change I made is for those little white dots in the center panel. I used white MH beads rather than doing individual stitches. I hate “rogue” stitches There are some unintentional changes (especially in this panel… the frogs live in that river, I swear) but nothing too obvious, I hope.
That’s two items off the list!! Woot!!
Also making fine progress on my L*K Mystery Sampler….
Only the last part to do and it’s my favorite of the three!
