  1. I did my first (and ultimately only) Mirabilia when my daughter was in school, maybe 20 years ago. They're very pretty designs, but I'm not into beading. Now, of course, I don't do much cross-stitch at all. Good luck with this! It's lovely.

  3. Picture This Plus fabric sale starts at midnight tonight (central time). It could take too long to get the fabric if you want to start right away. Just in case, the code is xmas25. She's a beauty!!

    challenge...but if anyone is up to it, you are, dear heart
    Should you decide on it, what an audience you will have
    for your progress....

  9. "Stargazer" was my most recent jumbo finish. She turned out soooo gorgeously! ...and was a lot of fun to do. I don't mind the beading, so it was a pure joy! And once finished, she's stunning. You gotta, Coni, you just gotta! I'm currently working on "Fairy Moon", and she and Stargazer will be matted, framed, and hung as a coordinating pair. ENJOY!

  13. A couple of postings ago, you mentioned that you had recently purchased a bulb for your stitching light. What light do you use? I'm in need of a good light, and so I might as well get advice from an expert stitcher. :-)

    1. Hi, Lucy! I use an Ott light. I used to use a halogen desk lamp but kept setting my hair on fire. My sister took pity on me and gave me the table top model that came with her Ott floor lamp.

      Love. It.

  14. Just last night I was considering Stargazer and Fairy Moon at an online stitchy shop...so beautiful. I think I'm going to end up doing Bluebeard's Princess next though. I'm currently working on Mermaid Verde, which is my first ever Mirabilia ever and it's so much fun!

  18. At first I didn't realize it was stitched on blue fabric and thought all the background was part of the pattern. Reminds me of that "Let It Go" WIP song you linked us to a week or so ago- wasn't one line..."10 different shades of teal"..? Go for it, Coni. Looks well worth your time and talent. -p.

  21. I completed a Mirabelia angel back in the early 90's for my Mother-in-law(now ex-MIL). She still has it hanging in her office today. They are fantastic pieces. I think you should do this one. It is lovely!

  22. Hopefully, they can get you the proper surgery as quickly as possible. Everyone deserves to feel well. Love the bell pull you pulled out. Happy stitching! --Andrea
