My most favorite

I finished Shakespeare's Fairies © Mirabilia !!! I have to say this is my most beloved cross stitch ever. I felt at peace while stitching them!!! Just pure love!!! And more beads than I ever imagined!!! Nora Corbett is amazing!!!! And they are for me. They are currently being stretched and then framing.  Pure love. I just adore the second fairies red flowers in her hair. I could go on and on but here are the pictures .....

Progress with a qsnap move

I've been on vacation and the trip to NY didn't happen so I've been stitching lots and lots.  Shakespeare's Fairies is getting lots of love I just can't stop stitching them. ........ Here they are 

A surprise gift

My hubby has never asked me to stitch for anyone so when he did .... I couldn't say no!! Since aunt Alice received her gift this am I can now post !!  The framing is done by Sara of Castelli Framing in Los Angeles!!! Another amazing frame !!! Thank you Sara. 
Here is aunt Alice's text upon opening her gift "OMG!!!! Julie it is absolutely gorgeous!! I thank you so much for all the time. & effort I know it takes to do that. I am going to hang it in prominent place. I love it! ". My heart is smiling.

A gift

I had stitched this piece so very long ago and was getting several pieces stretched just to have them stretched and ready ... This particular piece was no longer my favorite and when a good stitcher friend in my Wednesday group stated  that she loved it I gifted it to her! The joy on her face was so amazing I just knew I had done the right thing. A good friend made it into a flat fold ! Here are the pictures .....
