Now I'm Happy

Finally a good picture! I still can’t see all the colors (blue, violet, & green) in the fabric but this is pretty close.

Oh Lilac you beautiful doll I love you! Isn’t she just darling? I love every little thing about her. Even the fact I used 3/4 of just one pack of beads on her. And the line of beads on her back, little buttons marching down her gown. *sigh*Β  I think she took me nearly 3 hours to totally bead. 30 x 80 stitches. Annette, thank you again for RAKing me with Lilac.

I may or may not stitch tonight, I’ve put in a lot of hours the past two days on Lilac. I have a Fair & Square that’s due soon, I’ll spend next week working on that. I’d also really like to finish up part two on Caribbean. And like Autumn said it wouldn’t hurt to ask; my missing silks are:

Eterna Silk Mini-Twist

3406 and 4270

I know, uncommon stuff but if you have either or both of these drop me an email please. Thankfully it is just two and I’m able to work around them easily.

    Thanks so much for your encouraging comment on my sampler post. I liked what you said about just looking at it and smiling πŸ™‚
    Your stitching is gorgeous! I’m sorry I don’t have the silks you’re looking for. I used to have a bunch of the Eterna Silks but not anymore.
    Oh, I love your tagline on your blog heading, too funny! My hubba makes some funny podcasts and did a whole riff on cake once, lol!

    I think the cost of shipping will cost more than the silk though :-\

    Not sure if that is where you ordered to begin with…

    Oh Missy, this piece is going to be spectacular when done! I can’t even imagine! All those beads and everything! What a beautiful RR this is going to be! Looking forward to your finish of Part 2 of Caribean. Wish I could help you with the threads, but can’t – I don’t think I even own one of those! Hope that you find them.

    Jaw-droppingly beautiful. I can not believe how fast you stitched her and your stitches are just perfect. Congratulations, I’m happy dancing with you big time!
    This is going to be so much fun to watch and drool over.

    GORGEOUS! This is going to be stunning when finished! WOW Suz

  20. Imogen says:

    I agree. Lilac is just stunning! I’m incredibly keen to stitch her myself. Beautiful work πŸ™‚

  21. She is stunning!!! WOW I want to have her waist. That RR is going to be incredible.

    I’ve decided we need to find a new source for Eternas. I wish I could hook you up with those colors. I have both, but they are in active WIPs.

  22. Ranae says:

    Absolutly stunning!!!!!

    How elegant is she!

  25. JenJen says:

    That my friend is stunning! No two ways about it… I don’t even care for the Pixies much, but this is just jawdropping… bet it looks even better as the others get stitched in place. Wowza just doesn’t cover it.

  26. natasha says:

    That is a wonderful RR you are doing I look forward to seeing the whole thinged stitched up.

    I do believe you have your own mini book store in your house πŸ˜‰ But happy to hear that your kindle will be arriving soon.

    Take Care
