Check this out - these are the threads that filled the frog!
Ginny's Mirabilia Round Robin
I stitched Midsummer Night's Fairy. This one was frog-infested. What a time I had with her and all the Kreinik.
First Section of my Etui done.
Victoria Sampler's O Canada on 2012 Round Robin - her theme was souvenirs and so I stitched the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, a Canada Goose and our national symbol - the beaver. I hope she approves.
My Desert Mandala
188 Algerian Eyelets, 212 Dense Rhodes Stitches, 40 Rhodes Stitches and 16 Algerian Eyelets - all around that gorgeous border. Now I'm working on those black borders. The inside one is all Black Marlitt and it makes me cranky. It is awful stuff to work with even heavily coated with Thread Heaven. And I just had to do one of those pretty, pretty feathers - only 7 more to go.
I had some help from another wonderful stitcher and quilter - Barb - and we made my Band Sampler Round Robin into a bell pull. It is so pretty done and hanging.
And someone recently introduced me to the evils of Ebay and look what I bought. These are brand new - in perfect condition and cost me $10. How could I resist?
I will post some photos of the stitching get together at my house for the first weekend of September in a few days.
I am stitching now on a secret project! What fun and I'm making great progress.
Until next time, I hope those blasted frogs that infested my Mirabilia are now toasted and a delicacy for some one LOL.
