I've heard that Christy has received the ornie I made her for the Mirabilia Stitchers 2008 Christmas Ornie exchange, so I can now show you a photo. I've heard it said that you put a piece of yourself into every piece you make...if that's true there's a very bad piece of me in this. We had words, this ornie and I. Some of them were Very Bad Words Indeed. Not the stitching you understand...the stitching was a joy. But it was my first attempt at using a hot glue gun for the finishing. My glue gun only has one heat setting - thermo nuclear - and I managed to burn my fingers. Repeatedly. I was a mass of blisters for days. Anyway, I think it turned out ok and Christy likes it, which is what counts.
More of The Dreamer...I was getting a little bored with this, but once I took it off the Qsnaps and started a new area I got my mojo back.
I don't buy much stash these days because finances are tight, so I'm disproportionately and pathetically pleased to have just bought this off Ebay -
I'm slowly trying to fill in the gaps in my Mirabilia collection. I'm not trying to get all of them, only the ones I like. I've still to get Queen Mermaid and Maidens Of The Seasons 2...
Talking of Mirabilias...I'm quite excited to be taking part in a mini Mirabilia RR with Vanessa and Shannon - I sent my fabric off yesterday! I thought I'd taken a photo but it turns out I didn't...I'm putting my RR on SMF Summer Romance, with the boxes outlined in Petite Treasure Braid PB02. I can't wait to receive Shannon's fabric and make a start on hers!!
