I stitch

I also finish on occasion!

Letter L by Mirabilia stitched as charted on 28ct. African Daisy jobelan. Took me about 20 hours to stitch and went off to Jill Rensel for framing today. Stitched for my cousin’s brand new little baby girl Leah.

My dear friend Cheryl continued my happy birthday with a surprise.

Blackbird’s Loose Feathers #20 and a gorgeous pair of Elena Gingher’s. Awesome. I have the best stitching friends in the world. 😀

I’ve also started stitching on Shepherd’s Bush “Take Joy”. I bought myself the chart/kit and the box for my birthday.  I’m hoping to post a finish in a day or two.

My kit for Chatelaine’s Swan Lake (the 2011 mystery) arrived, the fabric is 28ct. Light Blue joblean. (yes I have a jobelan fetish) I need to get started on this and get back to the long neglected CaHRH <- which I promised to my Mother for Christmas ’11.

    That is very pretty.

  14. Heather says:

    Congratulations on the “L” finish. I’ve been looking at that one but had not seen such a good picture before. She’s beautiful. The kit for Swan Lake looks NUMMY!!

  15. Mary Jane says:

    I put my comment on the wrong entry – sorry! Now, about this post: You did a beautiful job on Leah’s gift, and the scissors gifted to you – wow!

  16. Daffycat says:

    Oooo, that’s such a gorgeous finish! Congratulations!

  17. Cheryl says:

    L is fab. Jill will do it right.
    As for your jobelan fetish, well, someone has to like the stuff, and it’s not me. Looks pretty, but I find it does not suit my in-hand stitching style. I know, I’m a high-maintenance problem child.
    Glad you like the birthday prizes! I had fun picking out what I thought you’d like. I hope your scissors snip perfectly and the pattern brings you hours of delight!

    I’m looking forward to seeing your Swan Lake start. It’s gonna be a beauty!

  18. Annette says:

    I love jobelan, so I totally understand your devotion 🙂

    Nice scissors and chart… and that “L” is perfect!

  19. Blu says:

    Lovely finish!
    The colours for Swan Lake look intersting

  20. Sally says:

    I love your letter L. She is so pretty.

    Gorgeous scissors and chart.

    Looking forward to seeing your new SB.

  21. Joyce says:

    I hubba hubba jobelan too. Wouldn’t it be nice to roll around naked in a bunch of them? HAHA!

  22. Anne S says:

    Gorgeous finish – those Mirabilia letters seem so much nicer stitched up than shows upon the chart covers … this one is no exception, it’s really pretty 🙂 Alas I can’t join you with your Jobelan fetish, it drives me crazy I don’t now why – but when I first started moving to evenweave from aida I loved it (but now generally prefer Lugana if I have to stitch on evenweave).
