May 12, 2012:

I have been working on Madonna of the Garden for the past couple of days.  I love her on this fabric.

Today I went to a few lawn sales looking for chapter books for my son and I picked up 16 boxes of Iris thread (24 skeins in each box) for $5.00.  Not sure what I'll stitch with them, but couldn't pass them up for the price.

I think I've decided to put The Bead Fairy by Nora Corbett on the scroll rod I freed up.  This will be the 4th of the stitching fairies that I've done in the series of 6.  I plan on stitching all of them.  The Stitching Fairies are quick easy patterns and will be a good one to tackle when I need a break from Madonna of the Garden.

These are the three that I've finished - one I even managed to get framed.  I hope to eventually have all 6 framed and hung in a grouping by my fireplace.


  1. Hi Lalena,
    I found your blog through the Mirabilia FB group.
    I love your stitching, and those fabrics are gorgeous!
    Happy stitching!
