Busy, busy, busy!

I might continue to blog less than usual for a while, as more models have come in. I received a new Rosewood Manor design in December, which thankfully has no set deadline, then two Nora Corbett's and a Mirabilia right after New Year. The first NC is due January 30th, but I'll be finishing it either today or tomorrow, so that's not a problem. I'm hoping at some point I'll have enough models done and in the pipeline that I'll be able to blog more regularly as they start being released and I can share pictures.

I did sneak in a bit of stitching for myself and completed Miss Lole's Daggerwing, on a piece of Silkweaver Tallahassee Teal Belfast. I lightened her hair up a bit, for a bit more color on the darker fabric:


I also contacted Wichelt about the defective button in the Mill Hill Snow Globe kit and they kindly sent a replacement, so I was able to get this finished and framed before I put it away until next Christmas:



In an earlier post I shared Nora's "Lady in Pink" painting that I had taken to the framer, so I thought I'd share the framed piece:


My framer said that he loves that I'm "not afraid of color", and he's certainly right about this one!

I thought I would start the new year with another small giveaway, for the chart, left-over threads and beads, needles and even the defective button (you might be able to sand the back to make it flatter) for the Snow Globe:


There won't be enough of the floss and some of the bead colors, and you'll have to use your own fabric or perforated paper, but you'll have the pattern and a good start on the supplies. Just leave a comment here, then check back in a week to see if you won and contact me using the email I'll post.

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!

  4. Three lovely pieces to start off the year. The mounts are perfect for Lady in Pink but it's a shame your Snow Globe will be put away already! Good luck with all your model stitching. :)

  6. Oh I had the same thing with the MH Believe kit - finished & FFO'd with only a few days to display over the season. I can see myself getting Christmas out early this year, LOL. Please enter me in the #passthestash!

  7. Beautiful pieces - that lady in pink is just wonderful and I like your framing choices. I'd be tempted to keep the snowglobe out for just a bit longer as it's so cute.

  9. I love the style of Ms Daggerwing, especially her boots.
    It must be so frustrating wanting to share the model stitching and tempt us all with a new design!
