Last Wednesday I finished another escapee from the WIP bin, Miss Solar Ellipse on Ophelia Belfast by Under the Sea Fabrics:
The timing was perfect because the next day I received Lady Mirabilia, which is Nora's latest release and celebrates her 25th anniversary as a designer of amazing charts. I pulled the threads and went stash diving for a fabric and found a piece of SMF (Sugar Maple Fabrics) Snickerdoodles Lugana that I loved for this:
I started last Thursday, and here she is as of last night:
It's amazing to me that I stitched my first Mira, Villa Mirabilia, over 20 years ago and Nora keeps creating new designs that still speak to me as much as that first one did. Who knows, maybe I wouldn't even still be stitching if it weren't for her designs!
Last week I also picked up some pieces from my framer (including, oddly enough, two Noras!) and dropped off Moss Collector. Here is Nora's Peace Doves (from a book, but currently available for download at Herrschner's):
Miss Lole's Daggerwing:
And Lizzie*Kate's ABC Halloween:
Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
