My New Year start

When I was going through my finishes from last year, I realized that this was the first year in quite a long time that I didn't have one large Mirabilia finish. I did have seven smaller Nora Corbett design finishes, but not one big one. So, what's a stitcher to do? Yep, you guessed it--start a large Mirabilia design right away!

I'd joined a FB group in which everyone starts a new Mira/NC design on January 1, and I decided to take one day off from the model to join in. My new Mira start is "Red", on Enchanted Fabrics' Rainforest Belfast linen:

I managed to finish her face and hair, but now I have to put her away until this model is done. I am so anxious to start on those gorgeous reds in her hood, but it probably won't be until the beginning of February that I can get back to her.

I hope everyone has a wonderful (and stitchy!) New Year!!


  1. I love Red, she is so striking and I bet she's going to look wonderful on that fabric! She's firmly on my "to-do" list! I look forward to seeing her progress :)

    Happy New Year!

  2. Hello dear
    compliments She is really beautiful.
    I'm stitching her, too.
    The mantle has beautiful shades of red wow.
    I adore the fabric you used.
    ciao Giovanna

  3. Great start.
    OMG! I can't wait to see those reds on that fabric!

  4. Great choice, Red is really stunning I can't wait to see more of her!!

  5. That Red looks awesome! I am sure you'll tame that Mira in no time.
