Started an oldie...

...but a goodie, Stone Roses by Mirabilia. I have to admit, this isn't one of Nora's designs that grabbed my attention right away like a lot of her others, but after seeing some WIP and finishes pictures over the years I've come to like it a lot. Then about a month ago I received this great piece of fabric from Polstitches, called Dapple, on 32ct opal linen; the design is actually printed onto the fabric, so each piece should look the same:


To me it looks like a watercolor painting of a garden, and ever since I got it I've been trying to think of which Mira I should stitch on it. Then a few days ago it hit me that Stone Roses was meant to be a statue in a garden, and the two came together like they were meant to be! The background has color and movement, and will be a nice contrast to the muted tones of the design:


The main color in the statue is white, but I've replaced it with Waterlilies Opal, which has just a hint of pastel colors and made me think of marble. Here is my progress after the weekend:


I'm hoping to get a lot done on this in the next couple of weeks, then I'll have to get to work on a model for a while.

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
