Hopefully, I'll be able to finish her up in the next couple of weeks. I was thinking of starting another Mirabilia after Charlotte, because I re-discovered a gorgeous piece of fabric in my stash, and it occurred to me that Cottage Garden Fairy would be perfect on it:
The fairy would fit pretty much in the inner circle on the fabric, and I think it would look like she's in the midst of a moonlit garden. The fabric is a hand-painted X-scape by Sugar Maple Fabrics (SMF); I think she used actual leaves and grass on the fabric, in the bright sun, to get the effect she did.
So I thought this would be my next start, but then a new Mirabilia came out, and now I think I want to start it:
It's called Moon Flowers, and I just love the rich colors in this one. I decided that this one is SMF-worthy, so I pulled a few pieces out for a floss toss:
I'm going to use the piece on the left, called Northern Myst, as it pulls the colors from the design and is opalescent, so it will look like a starry night sky. Now to finish up Charlotte, so I can start this one once I get the chart.
Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
