First up here is a photo of Persian Iris Garden, I am currently beading the centre and having some crowding issues, so instead of throwing it across the room (pointless but satisfying in a small way), I have decided to take a pic so you can see I have been working on this piece at long last. It’s very pretty on the black and I haven’t had too many problems adapting to using dark fabric. I remember when P.I.G started people did have problems with the beaded centre, so I am going to just have to have another go when I am a bit calmer. My last/first progress pic was taken in May! I unpicked the gold in the centre and re-did it yesterday morning and have since carried on.
In happier news I have finished part I of of Sampler Mystery II! There is supposed to be a bead above each flower in the outer border but I will leave them off till the end of the project as I may still wish to use my Q-snaps (this project is bigger than my largest set!! Again I have included a corner pic and one of the entire thing.
I laid the Sampler Mystery II fabric over the Persian Iris Garden Fabric and the size difference is negligible. I am starting to understand why I got a bit bogged down with these during the year!
I have seen the new Mirabilia, Lady of the Mist and of course I love her. Apart from the Christmas tree, I have loved all her recent releases. I really ought to get back to working on my Mirabilia WIPs. So many beautiful designs – not enough time!
