My First Mirabilia

Approximately seven (seven?! Has it been that long already?) months ago, I mentioned in passing that I started a Mirabilia. My first one in fact. I never got around to confirming which Mirabilia it was after asking readers to guess nor did I end up posting any photos of it. Obviously, other projects took over, gaining my immediate interest and the Mirabilia was pushed to the bottom of my to-do list.
Recently however, it has once again capture my undivided attention and I have been stitching it with intense vigor. Now that I have hopefully spike your curiosity, let me present to you...
For those familiar with Mirabilia designs, I'm sure you can tell at a glance with the amount of stitches put in so far that it's Garden Verses. The fabric is Silkweaver's Wandering Ivy Reflections 32 count Jazlyn. This is my first time stitching on Jazlyn as well. I find it very similar to lugana. Perhaps a little softer but the difference is minimal.
I will be participating in the Mirabilia Contest held at Mirabilia Stitchers with Garden Verses. My goal is to finish stitching her skin. A daunting task since I'm planning to stitch it one over one but the result is oh so rewarding. Wish me luck! :)

Beautiful Veronica, you have made such great progress and I finished my first mirabilia not long ago, the feather fairy. They are really fun and I think easy. Glad you are enjoying yours. :-)
