Miribilia Easter Fairy Update

Here she is as of last night. This is the first time I have gotten to work with Krienik Metallic threads and let me just say I hate it. Its pretty but it sucks, its so rough and irritating to work with so I think that part of her wings is going to go a bit slower than usual, but I still plan to have her completed before Easter on April 8th. You can also see in this picture the beads I have been able to put in. The ones outside of her will be last seeing as this is the largest hoop I own not counting my floor stand and I don't own any Q-snaps yet, though after this project I am thinking I seriously need to get some. This week I have to get a birthday gift finished up and mailed out by Friday plus I still have to mail out a very late bday gift to a dear friend of mine.

She is looking lovely :)
I totally understand about the metallic threads...yuck! But they are beautiful when completed!
I don't think I'll ever again use anything except my Qsnaps...they are wonderful! *if that helps enable you :)*

Wow! She is stunning! You are doing a wonderful job! I agree with you the Krienik Metallic is rough and hard to work with.

You are fast!!! She is very pretty! I've never used Krienick but I'm sure it is very hard to do.

She looks great Heidi! You'll love Q-snaps, well I think you would, I've never used anything else. Now I just need a stand.

That fairy is coming along nicely, she's so pretty! I know understand about those metallic threads, but hang in there, it'll be worth your while :)

She is looking good indeed. So sorry about the missing camera card. Hope you find it soon. I'll be sending you an e-mail soon for the postcard exchange. Just hope I'm not too late :D

She's gorgeous!! I know what you mean about the metallic threads - no fun to stitch with but a lovely effect when done.

She's looking fantastic! If you're focused you can get her done in time for sure!

Heidi, she is soooo pretty! The only one I've bought is the first one, Christmas Elf. Seeing yours makes me think maybe I need all of 'em. Yikes! I've really been stash binging. I have to stop somewhere, but I'll live vicariously through watching yours stitched, LOL!
