Progress pics and lots more....

First let me thank  JenniD of Tapestry Moon and  The Maiden from Maiden.Mother .Crone for nominating me for The Liebster Blog Award!!!!!!
Here are all the details about the Liebster Blog award:

Liebster is a German word, meaning favorite, dearest or beloved, and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition. The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.
4. Share five random facts about yourself that people don't know about you. 

I am most honored by this and simply will nominate the blogs in my sidebar since those are my most favorite........now 5 random facts.....

1. I have more stash then I can ever finish....
2. I won't repeat won't count my WIP's.........(sorry Maiden)
3. I am developing a fondness for mermaids
4. I love tea and will drink it cold....
5. I really want to start Blooming Bride (she's all kitted up!)

Well I satisfied 3 of the 4 rules  ......

Now on to pictures.....

First up is a pillow for a dollhouse that my cousin asked me to do about 2 years ago but I was waiting for inspiration.......and it finally came in the form of crowns!!! The dollhouse is for a second cousin of mine....the dollhouse has been lovingly crafted by my cousin her aunt since birth... I think it's perfect!!!!! Oh and the finishing was done by a dear friend of mine!!!!


 Edited to add this picture to show actual size of Crown Dollhouse pillow 

 Now onto my Bluebeard's Princess © Mirabilia update......I am still in love with her..... 


Here are pics of my other two starts recently.... first is Gathering Eggs © Mirabilia .Amazingly I had this from the original magazine and it was packed away and a dear stitching friend had stitched her and every time I saw her I wanted to stitch her ....And even more amazingly I found the magazine immediately.....and then the perfect fabric......32ct Opalescent Raw linen....not much done since a mermaid has been monopolizing my time... 


Next is Silver Moon Tea © Mirabilia. Which I posted about when she was first released...I am toying with the idea of putting my initials and the year where the "earl grey "goes..... a friend at my stitching group did that and I really liked it....I shall see once I'm up to that point...I have a ways to go.....again a mermaid refuses to be put down.....
She is also on 32ct Opalescent raw linen..... It may be my new favorite fabric....

And my next start is all kitted up and guess what it's a Mirabilia .........Blooming Bride which I have always wanted to stitch but never really found the "perfect" fabric......well now I have! What could be more perfect than Huntress by PTPlus fabric.......it screams Blooming Bride....... I am trying to resist......
Thanks for reading so far and for visiting my blog!!!!!


  1. Congrats on your Leibster! Your mermaid is looking fabulous. Can understand how hard it is to leave her, but you're still able to start some others I see. Looking forward to watching them, too!

  2. Congratulations on your award - so well deserved. As we say in Holland "jij bent een echte lieverd".

    hugs, Margaret

  3. Congrats on the award. You certainly have been doing a lot of stitching. Your mermaid is stunning. Can't wait to see more of Gathering Eggs and Silver Moon Tea.


  4. Oh man, your SMT is making me want to start mine! Must. resist. until. I. finish. some. WIPs. LOL

  5. I can't wait to see BB on Huntress; I think that sounds amazing!

  6. Ooh, you're making good of your promise for a Mira year! I can't wait to see them all. Mermie is looking great and that's a great idea to add your initials etc to Silver Moon.

  7. Do not even try to resist Blooming Bride!!!
