Boring Beige Blob

I've been telling myself that I haven't had much progress on my New Year's start. But I realized a while ago that I've actually made a ton of progress. Unfortunately it's all beige and just a blob.

I decided that I had to stitch Mab's counterpart.


Spring Queen
32 ct White Lugana

Winter Queen was the first Mira I ever started and finished. I absolutely adore her! She's Queen Mab to me because I was reading Jim Butcher's Dresden Files about the time I was wrapping her up and it just clicked. I can't honestly call Spring Titania because she hasn't really appeared in the books much.

Initially I hadn't planned on stitching any of the other queens but Spring eventually grew on me. I don't think Summer's pose fits in, and I just dislike Autumn's colours, so they're a guaranteed no-way.

Spring has been flipped so that she and Mab will face each other. The pipe dream is to finish her this year and get them both framed.

She will be lovely stitched. I did Winter Queen myself and then over the last couple of years stitched Royal Holiday. I am going to hang the two of them together.
I will enjoy watching our progress.

Your wip will be a gorgeous companion to the beautiful Mab. Look forward to more progress.

She looks great so far. All our beautiful stitching looks blobby at first! She'll look fantastic when finished.
