Sooz, my little pumpkin!

Sooz, my little pumpkin! Look at the wonderful progress you have made on Villa Mirabillia! She looks divine. Now Sweetie, just one, tiny, little suggestion, you could of probably finished the crest on VM instead of blogging.......................

I think I have become a Stitch'n Wench


Wowzers! I have done some serious stitching these days. This is the kind of results one gets when Melly is riding your a$$. I am so glad I could step in and give Annie some relief from the Stitch'n Slavedriver. I have been stitching so much I have a hole in my finger, me naughty finger that is...hehe. The little bugger is sore too, but I must press on because that is what an ort fed stitching wench must do. Hope this pleases you greatly High Priestess Of The Smoke'n Needles

Waiting For Ships in the Loo


You said you wanted to see my Waiting For Ships so here it is darling. Does this make you even more excited to start Queen Mermaid? Here is documented proof that a mermie can live in the bathroom. I know you find this most astonishing Annie but look how good she looks in there. Now I just need Queenie to move in there with her.

Melly you are busted!

Now you have told me that Annie is always instructing you about what you will be stitching next. Me thinks it tis the other way round! I had a delightful little conversation with Annie this day. It seems you told her she could choose the next design to stitch after Fairy Moon and before she could draw breath to say what one she wanted to do you blurted out Crystal Christmas!

What do you think ladies? Does this suit her? The new nickname I have for her?

Mirabilia Manipulating Melly........Rolling On Floor Laughing My A$$ Off!

Ta Daaaaaaa!

Here I am, better late than never I suppose. Lovely looking blog girls with some very nice piccies. Sooz, Villa Mirabilia looks stunning and I think the mermaids floss toss looks pretty good too. Lovely start on your Celtic lady there Leonie! Has Mel already told you that my *choice* ( and iI do use the word choice rather loosely) was Crystal Christmas? Leonie? Are you joining us on that one?
Speaking of leonie...she has very cleverly worked out what my mystery WIP is. No Mel, it isnt Bunny On The Path. Would a piccy of a large amount of stitches that amounts to a depressingly small amount of chart covered, help in identification?

There you go...knock yourselves out!

Celtic Autumn


Here is a pic of what I have done so far........I am doing the original colours with the Needlepaints, as I love purple!! It is stitched on Stitches and Spice Jobelan 28ct- colour Tundra.

Please excuse the picture-it is draped over the washing line outside lol.

Sooz, your Villa is looking just lovely-it must be fun to stitch with all those bright colours. The floss toss is looking great too-I take it that you found all the bits and pieces you were looking for.

Mel, I think we need a picture (or two) from you-anything will do. I can give you some help to post, but really it is pretty easy!

Latest news-Annette has a Mystery WIP. Since she can't use her srcoll rods/frame at the moment, she has started something new..........now the hints she gave me were

  1. it's a HAED
  2. it has 50 colours
  3. it's not a huge one but not a QS
  4. it may not have 939 (she's not sure so if it has some, it's a small amount)
  5. she has so far done 80 stitches or so in brown BUT she didn't start at the botton left as usual.......

I have no idea what it might be-I will have to have a browse to see if I can guess..........

Queen Mermaid Floss Toss


I thought you ladies might like to take a peek at my fabbie and how it shall look with Queenie. The fabbie is SMF Atlantis. The pic is not that great but I am hoping you get the general idea. Oh and in case you were wondering about the fabbie on my previous post for VM it is SMF Golden Turret. I do hope we shall see a pic of your Floss Toss Melly as soon as you get your fabbie. Queenie is now kitted up and ready to go! I realize you are about a month off but it is always best for a stitcher to be well prepared. I am telling you she is going to be absolutely stunning! I am really getting geeked about starting her. Don't worry Melly, I shall finish VM first! Leonie, I know you are thinking about Celtic Autumn, could we have a pic of her? ....and yes, I know that could change....LOL. Annie if you read this darl'n you are in my deepest thoughts and my prayers, I am pretty tight with The Man upstairs. You shall be feeling better before you know it. Later my Aussie dolls!

You Asked For It!


Here is my progress as of right now with Villa Mirabilia. This design has the most amazing 3 D effect and I so wish it showed up in the picture. Leonie, I consider it a birth right for a woman to get to change her mind in the wink of an eye! LOL Good to see you made it here too Melly. I love this bloggie thing, it so rocks! Oh Leonie can you add this link to our list. It is the Design & Fabbie Viewer. http://www.stitching.jekdesign.com/FabricChoices.html

Me too!!!!!!!!!!

I am here too! Can I please have the pretty pink writing? I can? Great! Thankyou to Leonie for being smarter than all of us in being able to put this together. Woman, you are a legend! I am looking forward to seeing all our FINISHES! This is going to be great. Off to catch a Dragon!

Me next!

Hi there Sooz! You are welcome-I will learn as we go. I have no idea what I will stitch. I am contemplating my Celtic Autumn which is a WIP but not very far along. I reserve the right to completely change my mind as it could be over a month before we start. Can we see a WIP pic anywhere Sooz??

If anyone has any links they would like to add, just let me know-I can do that bit! lol

Oh, and I will use green, if it looks OK.

And so it begins....

First things first, thanks Leonie for setting this up and managing it. What an awesome idea! Love the links by the way. Would you mind adding www.abcstitch.com? I guess I am the token yankee...LOL. Now I guess I should get down to official sistah business. Leonie, I know you are not interested in Queen Mermaid so I am curious as to what your project will be. Got any ideas? Or, do you know exactly what you want to stitch?

For our blog would you ladies mind if we all picked a color and typed our message in that. I was thinking that would be easier for us to know whose entry we were reading in our blog. I have chosen orange to see how that looks displayed on the blog. I have the day off tomorrow and plan to get a lot of stitching in. The skirt is coming along rather nicely.

Okay ladies I am waiting to see your posts!
