A little progress...

On Mirabilia's Under the Friendship Tree. I am making this for my mom, so it will be like me and my sister. I am planning to finish this before I go to the Philippines for a visit so I can give it to my mommy. She hardly cross stitches anymore as she is starting her little 'crochet business' and has no time. I am converting the skin and hair to match ours. =)



It's stitched on Enchanted Fabrics Margarita Flair opalescent lugana, one of the prizes that Lori sent me from when she had her anniversary contest. It was also hubby who picked the fabric in my stash, since I am eliminating the tree and extra whatnots that made the design a little busy for my taste, that way the focus is on the little girls itself. Hubby also thinks that the fabby will look like they are playing in the grass and vowed it's perfect!




I haven't gone very far, but I had some progress done from when i took a picture of my floor stand. I love how brilliant the colors on the girl's dresses are. They are really beautiful. ;)

And before everything else is forgotten. Thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday. I really appreciate them and it truly made my day yesterday. Thank you! thank you! =^_^=

Hi Hun, I'm sorry its been so long since I've been able to stop by your (or anyone else's) blog. :( But I wanted to pop in and say Under the Friendship Tree looks beautiful! And your new "modified" floor stand looks like it works great. :) Oh! And any plans on starting your new Mira Pixie?
Hope you have a great week and give little Connor lots of hugs for me. :)
