So here we go...... here's the new start from Boxing Day!
Sorry it's taken so long to get this online but since Christmas I haven't really felt in the sharing mood if you know what I mean, dunno what's wrong with me but hey ho and all that.
Here you go..... First up is the initial mock up I did when choosing a fabric for Moon Flowers, I finally decided on Twilight Shadows (with more purple than usual) by Dawn at The Crafty Kitten. So this is how I'm hoping the finished piece will look when finished and so far it's looking pretty accurate which is very pleasing!

So what do you think? Obviously this is all just plain stitching so far and I will do the beads when all the stitching is in. I'd actually forgotten what a pain Kreinik and Wisper is to stitch with, although the Caron thread is a beautiful thread to work with, shame it's so blinking expensive to buy!
So the important stuff:
Mirabilia's Moon Flowers by Nora Corbett
Stitched on 32 count Murano evenweave in a customised Twilight Shadows by The Craft Kitten
2 thread over 2 squares in full crosses
Started on 26th December 2015
Finished on TBA
I will try really hard not to let the next update take quite so long and I'll see you next time!
