Mirabilia Obsession and FT update

My Mirabilia obsession this summer has really gotten out of control!  I had always admired her patterns because they are gorgeous!!! It wasn't until my friend Becki said this simple statement, "I can't believe you don't stitch more of her patterns since they are right up your alley"  Maybe not in those words but you get the drift.   So I have been on a hunt for as many Mirabilias that I can find at a reasonable rate.   My collections has grown by a lot!!!   Before we left on our cruise, a lady posted these two OOP charts - Queen of Peace and Sleeping Beauty.  I told myself that if they were still there after my cruise, then I could order them for myself.  They were there and I ordered them!   They came in last week from Germany. 

What designer have you just fallen in love with and must own all their charts????   I still have several on my list...but I will find them!

Faery Tales Update:
Here is my Just one in July project update.   I stitched the dwarfs!  OMG!  They were so much confetti I thought I might pull my hair out!    I am also using this page for the HAED facebook parking challenge...My goal is to finish this page by the end of the month.   I have 2,156 stitches to go..I think I will make it!  

The other day Brigen decided to jump up on my lap for some cuddle time.  I had an 88 lb. snuggle buddy for a while.   He has recovered from his escape from the yard.  However, he is still a more clingy than usual.  

I can't believe I go back to school in less than 2 weeks!  SO NOT READY!!!!!

I like a lot of the Miras, too. Only have a few, though. Haven't stitched any of them. LOL Nice progress on FT.

I have only stitched 1 Mirabilia, but it won't be my last!

He is smiling to beat the band!! How cute, even if he is 88 pounds! :-)

Hmmm it does sound like you have a bit of an obsession going on there! They are lovely designs though.
Great progress on your gnomes- they look really effective. The confetti was definitely worth it!

I have a collection of a fair amount of Joan Elliot's patterns. I just love the way she does faces and fairies. I just love them but I don't know if I will ever actually complete any with the rate I'm going

Awesome progress on Faery Tales Vickie. I know you'll get the page done. Love the pic of you and large lap dog.

I also love Mirabilia pattern too, they are always so elegant. Hubby bought me one, still haven't gotten round to stitching it yet. One day. My collection seems to run around Susan Bates lately, lots of garden/country themes. You managed to get heaps done on the dwarfs, if it was mainly confetti! Cowabunga!

They do seem very you. I'm glad you are finding the ones you want. Beautiful progress on Faery Tales. The dwarfs look too cute. Brigen is adorable. Good luck with returning to school.
