Christmas Elegance Progress

I've been craving to cross stitch a Mirabilia the past few weeks and was unable to get my hands on one of my projects while I was house sitting so I took the chance to work on Christmas Elegance this May Long weekend (also known as my birthday weekend!)

 That is about the half way point on her now. She should be done by Christmas 2014 if I don't get distracted by other projects.

I also made a promise to myself that I wouldn't buy any more Mirabilia patterns until I finish 3 of them. Yeah that Mira ban lasted less than 24 hours haha. I ended up getting a Visa gift card in my birthday card from my parents which promptly took me to my favorite online cross stitch store and I purchased my beads for Christmas Elegance. But the shipping was going to be $10 so I figured since I was already paying for the shipping I might as well throw in some patterns.....right?

So I ended up buying Enchanted Mermaid and Mermaid of Atlantis.

 I am looking forward to starting these pretties. So gorgeous and so full of beads! Maybe I have to finish 3 patterns before I start either of them? Yeah we will see how long that lasts ;)

Until next time have fun stitching!!


  1. Stunning stitching. Love your new patterns, so pretty.

  2. Christmas Elegance is beautiful, and now you're getting her lovely beads as well. I have several Mira's but haven't started one yet, I really should do!

  3. Beautiful stitching. I love the fabric you're using.

  4. Happy Birthday!!
    Great pressies:)
    I love Christmas Elegance. Can't wait to see you start the mermaids :)
    Hugs x

  5. Happy Birthday!!! I'm working on a HUGE Mria right now too (Santa's Magic) and definitely feels like I need a little break. Funnily enough I nearly bought the exact same patterns over this weekend too!!! lol

    1. Thank you! :) And oh that is a gorgeous pattern can't wait to see it finished. Those patterns are gorgeous eh? Its funny because the lady I ordered them from said mermaids seemed to be very popular right now because she had to order in more of them, normally she has them all in stock. I blame the Mira groups on Facebook, all of the pretty finishes makes you want to go buy them!
