Two Finishes, One Floss Toss

Just finished this week, the Halloween SAL designed by Love Thy Thread. A bit late for this year, so we'll consider it early for next Halloween ;)

Stitched over 1 on a dusty dark purplish mystery 28 count evernweave I got on ebay last year, with DMC 51 and 310.

Next on my frame was Nora Corbett's Sweet Pea. This one has a very big dress and a lot of beads for such a small pixie, but I powered through it and here she is:

Stitched on 32 count opal evenweave Silkweaver solo, a light mauve. To be honest it was not a fun fabric to stitch on: it's very thick, and feels a bit like a jobelan that's been starched. The threads kept splitting so it was a bit hard to find the right hole sometimes.

Anyway, here are some artsy fartsy shots of the beading:

I substituted the Caron Waterlilies 210 with DMC Color Variations 4000.

And finally, last but not least in today's news, here is a gorgeous piece of fabby:

Isn't it gorgeous? This is the December 2012 Limited Edition that was sent only to Sparklies' FOM club members. I saw it in real life in a friend's stash and it was just the perfect fit for the next project I had in mind, so I contacted Kate from Sparklies and she very nicely made a new one for me.

Mirabilia's Persephone, next under my needle :)
