A Round Robin Finish

My Mirabilia Round Robin is on its way home to me as we speak! Karen, of My Stitchy Ramblings fame, added the final "angel" to my piece, one of the fairies from Spring Topiary Garden.

I can't stop looking at it. It came out so much better than I could have ever dreamed! I worried so much about the colours clashing, or the scale of the various angels, or whether the fairy would really look out of place with the Madonna and angels. But it's... perfect, simply perfect. And Karen added an awesome halo to the fairy, so she fits right in. All of my attempts at drawing one were not very successful, so I'm again in total awe of Karen's designing skills.

Now to count down the days until Canada Post delivers this home to me. I've had some issues with them of late, so please cross your fingers with me!

P.S. Two months between posts... I'm getting better ;)

P.P.S. I have been doing quite a bit of stitching of my own. I've completed three RR squares, one Mirabilia and two Joan Elliott's, and I've started another pixie. I just need to edit the photos, but my lunch break at work is almost over. I'll try to post again in less than two months :)


  1. Wow it is looking so lovely..

  6. We all did an amazing job on this didn't we? You chose the perfect designs for this. I was so happy to be in your group and get to stitch something a little different too.

  7. I just signed up to your blog RSS. Will you post more about the subject?
    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess Ill just sum it up what I wrote and say, Im thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but Im still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers? Id certainly appreciate
