Happy Friday

I have no new finishes. Since finishing Christmas Elf Fairy, I have stitched very little. I've stitched a little more on LK GIVE DoubleFlip, and have stitched a little more on the large project from my recent Myrtle Beach retreat.

Tonight I will stitch my signature on Christmas Elf Fairy and give her a good pressing, for tomorrow morning she gets dropped off at LNS for framing. I also will leave for framing Shepherd's Bush "Christmas Is Love" that I stitched back in December.

While eating a late lunch at my desk (at work) an hour of so ago, I was surfing around the web. Browsing through the various websites, I realized something, and with this realization, have concluded that I have LOST MY MIND. Since finishing Christmas Elf Fairy (my first Mirabilia), I find myself wanting to stitch other Mirabilia's. I have already purchased 3 additional limited addition "Fairy" kits and have the "Christmas Tree 2007" kit. These are relatively small in size (compared to most other Mirabilia designs - like the "mermaids"). And, what, do you ask, what do I want to stitch? All of a sudden, I want to tackle a LARGE Mirabilia project. And which Mirabilia project have I decided upon? One that I purchased several years ago .....



The Lady of the Flag
- Design Size: 340 x 170 stitches (21 1/4" x 10 3/4" on 32 ct)
- 8 packages of beads

I have other large projects that I'd like to work on. I have 1 large project that is currently a UFO (that I want to get back to working on sometime soon). Why oh why do I suddenly want to start a really large Mirabilia project? As I mentioned earlier, I think I've lost my mind. For those that know me, you'll proabably agree.

I'm actually going to pull the pattern out tonight, pull the DMC colors needed so I can decide what kind of fabric to use.

Hugs to all. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I have a concert later tonight and a dixieland gig tomorrow afternoon. In between playing music, I'll hopefully get a little stitching done this weekend.

I find sometimes after I work hard to get a piece finished I have a wee bit of a slump before I take off running again. I've stitched a big mira and a small mira... they're the same!
