Hi, stitchy friends!
I’m currently tackling a very challenging Mirabilia (Nora Corbett) Mermaid pattern. Her patterns are dreamy, watery mermaids, plus lots of other fantasy-like characters like angels, cherubs and fairies. But she also does some neat witches and beautiful Victorian-like Santas. Very nice work. Check it out here.
I’m working on her “Mermaid of Atlantis”. It’s just gorgeous with its greens and golds and deep blues. I just love it. I got most of it done just before I started graduate school last August, stitched a little more over Christmas break, then just been stitching a little more during my last semester break this past week. But, it’s time to put the needles up for a few months, because my summer semester starts on Monday. Bah humbug!
Here are some shots of my progress. I’m done with all of the stitching and backstitching. Just adding the beads. Her patterns have that added element of dimension with lots of metallic threads and seed beads. Hope you like it!
