I forgot to say…

Craft Kitten fabrics has created and iPhone/iPod app called Crafty Fabric that lets you put in fabric count, stitch count and margins to work out the size fabric you need. Metric people be warned it is in inches, but most of us I think can still work with that 😀


I am here… honest…

I know it has been ages since I did a proper post with pictures and all. I have been stitching away on and off on Miss Meddy. She is going swimmingly, if you will pardon the pun.

I couldn’t get the colours to photograph true to life, but here she is anyway:

mirabilia,mediterranean mermaid

mediterranean mermaid,mirabilia

I really like this fabric, and am so sad when Enchanted Fabrics stopped dyeing but Lori had to live her life, and so these things happen. Now the weather is starting to get better I am going to have to get back to dyeing again myself. The house we moved into at the start of the year has no convenient area for dyeing, so I have to be outdoors to do so. And the weather has not been obedient, or at all nice for this purpose 😦

Its been over a month!!

I promise to post a picture later when I have stitched her face. Meddy has no hair, but has arms, a torso, and tail. In other words, other than the hair, most of the stitching is done… then she needs beads!!
