Stitch Maynia - Christmas Elegance and Taurus

Yesterday was the first day of Stitch Maynia! Fifteen starts in fifteen days! Yay! Because it's easiest for me to keep track of, I'm working on my pieces in alphabetical order. Yesterday's new start was Christmas Elegance by Mirabilia.


I have several Mirabilia patterns in my stash, but this is my first one to actually work on, and it was the first Mirabilia pattern I ever purchased! Here is where I got to yesterday:


I am stitching this on 32 count Belfast in Silent Night from Under the Sea Fabrics. I think it's going to look amazing on this when it's all said and done!

Yesterday also saw the release of the Taurus section of the Walking Through The Stars Zodiac Sampler. Here is where I got to before bed called my name:


Not too much left! I'll get this finished today as well as work on my next start for Stitch Maynia! Incidentally, my son is a Taurus and though I think he's too young yet to really fully embrace his sign (he turns five on the 7th), I can already see some of the Taurus traits in him! I'll give the full description that came with the pattern tomorrow with the completed pattern.

Until next time!

  5. You know I've never done a Mira, despite having quite a few in my stash. She'll be lovely!

  6. Have fun with your challenge. I look forward to seeing all your new starts. I love Mirabilia designs but have never done a complete one. I have done parts of about eight of her designes in a Mirrabilia RR I participated in. I look forwar dto doing Christms Elegance sometime in the future as I have it in my stash as well.
