New Project 2017

I've been stitching on a new project for a SAL I am running in my community. The SAL is Mira March SAL. I purchased and am stitching Deepest Love designed by Nora Corbett.
From the Web..
My progress so far since March 1st 2017. I am stitching this on 28 count Jobelan Twilight Mist found on 123Stitch

***9-10-2017 - - - I just started back on this after getting caught up with the Great Cheshire Pumpkin SAL being offered by Tempting Tangles
So far everything is still on point with count and I feel I am making progress now thankfully. Doesn't look as if much is done due to having to restitch the parts but there's progress.
Until next time... Happy Stitching and may you have smokin' needles

 








*8-30-17 When I last left off I was frogging the inner ribbon due to being off quite a bit on the count.. I have caught back up to where I was originally and added some stitches to the far left side.. Progress until I get back to this in a couple of weeks. "ON POINT" means my stitch count is correct on both sides of the inner ribbon. Until next time...Happy Stitching and May you have smokin' needles xxx




* 8-18-2017 - I haven't updated this one as much as I would have liked. Work has been very busy and I've added the progress of Deepest Love to other post. The Ribbons have been a thorn in my side thus far, I was up past the half way point on this and found a big mistake in the ribbon next to her body. It wasn't close enough to her body.... So I started frogging it last night
I have started restitching the ribbon counting twice and watching my placement. DON'T stitch when you are tired! I think that's why I made such a major mistake on this. Anyhow I have managed to stitch some on this before this update and now back up to here...

Back to stitching... Until next time. Happy Stitching and May you have smokin' needles
6-6-2017 Work has been crazy busy so I haven't been able to update much. I have however been able to stitch a bit on Deepest Love along with 3 other projects. I'm working from the bottom up now. Progress so far... Outer ribbon and seaweed done up to scroll frame, I am stitching the middle ribbon and then the body before moving my scroll frame up...
Until Next Time.... Happy Stitching xxx 
5-12-2017 Update on Deepest Love for the Mira March SAL  Finished the Fin and working my way back up..

4-15-2017  I loosened up the scroll frame to move it up as I am working on the bottom part....

I hope that this finds everyone doing well. Until next time Happy Stitching and may Mr. Frog stay away.

Update
Unfortunately I have been unable to post as much as I want due to busy season at work. I am trying to stitch when I can and have made some progress on Deepest Love only to find some mistakes and have a major frogging session last night. I WAS up to the halfway point of the pattern when 2 of the outer ribbons were getting too close together. I found the mistakes a little too late and had to frog the entire outer ribbon and seaweed. I've restarted the ribbon and am counting at least 3 times as I stitch... She is just too beautiful to fudge up. I want her right or it will haunt me when I look at it.... So here's some progress. The mistakes and frogging I have done...
Outer ribbon and middle ribbon too close together
Frogging has begun(7-4-2017)
Restarted the outer ribbon. Counting, recounting and counting again.
Until next time .....Happy Stitching xxx

  2. I do love a Mirabilia Mermaid! I did stitch a Nora Corbett in March, one of her Alphabet Fairies.

    1. Thank you! :) I'll go take a look. I have fell in love with Nora Corbett designs and Lavendar and lace. This is my first Mira and so far I love stitching it.
