Midsummer Night's Fairy


Done!

The particulars:  The design is "Midsummer Night's Fairy" by Mirabilia and the fabric is Misty Blue 32 count belfast linen.

Midsummer Night's Fairy is one of my "bucket list" Mirabilia's that I started working on in 2008 - old patterns that I have absolutely loved for years and wanted to do but never did.  The list includes finishing off the four queens (done, 2009), Fairy Idyll (done, 2009), Sleeping Beauty (in progress), Rose of Sharon (not close to starting; want to change the colors around), and Middy (done!).  I remember first buying the pattern in the late 90's and I just kept looking at it..looking at it...LOL   Well, now I can look at the piece rather than the pattern.

Lots and lots of beads....she actually convinced me that in the future, heavily beaded pieces need to be done on 28 count linen rather than 32 count - regular Mill Hill beads are just a smidge too large for 32 count over two fabric.

She is my 10th Mirabilia finish....yay!

Your fairy looks beautiful. Congratulations on your stunning finish.
I feel guilty that I have not finished mine which was started at least 5 years ago you have now given me the inspiration to take it out again.

She is beautiful...I have several of the patterns by Mirabilia but I haven't done them yet. Hopefully I can soon. There is one that I want to do really bad for a good friend of mine.

Congratulations on your finish. She is sure beautiful.
