More Mirabilia RR

Because there was a delay in mailings earlier in the round, I ended up getting a few of these kind of close together. I might have one more pretty soon too! Anyway, this is Marjean's and I really like the layout. As you can see she has some thick and short boxes and some thinner and longer. I bet this piece is really going to be beautiful once complete.

As you can see I stitched part of Emerald Mermaid. :) Since my own RR is going to come back to me all mermaids, I thought it might be nice to stitch one or two myself.

Heritage Sampler WIP pics

I picked this up on Friday to do my normal rotation slot on it, but just couldn't
put it down! I ended up stitching on it all weekend and managed to finish the border around the top band and start the two vertical bands underneath. I'm pretty happy with how it is coming along and these pics really don't do the piece justice. It is much more vibrant in real life. :)

Another Mirabilia RR finish

Finished another section for my Mirabilia RR. This is a section of Butterfly Fairy, a pattern I've always liked minus the fairy's wings. It was nice to stitch just my favorite part of the design. :)

Alhambra Garden progress

Here is an updated progress pic for Alhambra Garden. I know it isn't a ton more since my last photo, but I did complete a diagonal corner, which I've decided is my favorite part of this design, and it went quick too! :)

I also took advantage of some unexpected free time on Friday afternoon and finished off my first ever Halloween design into my first ever flatfold. It turned out okay, and looks pretty good in the photo, but a closer examination would reveal some finishing blunders. Looks good enough to have up for the month of October though, and I since this was my first flatfold I knew the finishing probably wouldn't be the greatest. I'll do better on the next one having had the practice now. :)

Here's what I got

This is what I received from the recent Open-themed exchange on the Rotation Board. This is from Liz, and she stitched me the prettiest little biscornu. :) I think I'll ditch my old ugly pin cushion from JoAnn's and start using this instead. :)

Exchange Received

I stitched this for an Open-themed Smalls Exchange on the Rotation BB. I received word today that the receipant got it in the mail so I figured I'd share the pics. :)

The design is Sweet Baby James Needle Purse by Indigo Rose and it appeared in JCS a few years ago. I changed the colors to silks that I had leftover from when I stitched "My Son" a few years back. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and it was relatively quick and easy.
