Small Successes

I’ve made a bit more progress lately J. First up, I’ve finished one of the Samurai’s sleeves and begun working on the other one:

After I knock out that second sleeve I’m trying to decide which area to focus on next. My choices are to start in on the yellows and do his belt, switch back to some red, or really mix things up and start work on the tree. I suppose I should make sure I finish the sleeve first though, haha!
And, drum roll please, I’ve finally finished… the half stitches on the Summer Lady! Yay!

I’ve begun working on the metallic stitches, which are the last hurdles before the backstitch. It’s not going too badly yet. I changed it a bit as I’m only doing them in one strand instead of two, but so far so good. The silver ones I’ve done so far are on her dress sleeve on the right hand side and the beginnings of the outer border. Lots more fun to look forward to though J.
Have a great stitching week!


  1. Both of these are amazing so far, but I'm particularly impressed by Summer Lady! Best of luck with her sparkle stitches!

  2. I love the Samurai you are doing, and I have to tell you that I can't get over Summer Lady and how pretty she is! She is so different from many of the other mirabilias I have seen, and even though I love Mirabilia this one just resonates with me. Beautiful job so far!

  3. You've got two great projects on the go there, they're both looking wonderful. :)

    PS. I vote for some tree stitching! :P
