Trying to Post picture

I thought I would give posting photographs a try.  I have picked most of this year's finishes.  The first design is Mirabilia's Sleeping Beauty.  I stitched her on a Silkweaver fabric, the name eludes me at the moment.  If this is a successful post, I will try and post a progress picture of my Victoria Sampler Etui.

This year I also stitched Mira's Sunflower Fairy from an issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine.  It was stitched on Hand Dyed Heaven's Twist, this is a UK company that does some lovely hand dyed fabric.

As you may have guessed from all my photographs I love Mirabilia designs.  I very rarely stitch any small designs, so my finishes are few and far between.  These are most of my finishes for 2010. 

This Design was stitched on a pink toned Silkweaver fabric.  I stitched it as a gift for a friend who had a baby girl.  Unfortunately, I have put it in a safe place and haven't been able to give it to the friend yet.  When it is no longer in the safe place I will have it framed and pass it on, hopefully before the baby is too old.

The final photograph that I am posting is Mira's Daisy again stitched on Hand Dyed Heaven fabric, I kind of forget the names of the fabrics, it is a kind of pale blue/green.  Hopefully everyone has enjoyed looking at some of my finishes.

After reading everyone's blogs I thought I would start one to keep track of my stitching and other things.

At the moment I am stitching on Victoria Samplers, Count your Blessings Etui, which I started in Myrtle Beach at the Pals Fall Fling.  At the moment I have finished the first stitched part and am now starting the 2nd vine area.

Being new to blogging I will post a pic when I figure it out.
