Conflict

I refer to my posts this month where I'm either wailing about the disappearance of my mojo or showing off something new.

I'd make claims about stopping, but today's post featuring my 9 hours of stitching over the last 3 days that make up the May Long Weekend showcase both:
I have a new start
And considering that I've previously stitched ~ 30 hours in 4 days, 9 in 4 is a bit of a fall.

I'm not a September baby. I don't think I know anyone who's one. I don't care for my fairy (May), however I think that Mirabilia's newest fairy makes for a pretty good Emerald May.


She's actually titled September's Sapphire Fairy, but I don't see how that fits since (to me) sapphires are blue (except maybe the obi but that's black-blue not sapphire-blue).

I love that green kimono and the blue-black obi. I'm leaving out the wings and haven't made up my mind about the trailing vines/fronds/things.


September's Sapphire Fairy

Since the green kimono is the main attraction I thought I'd get some of the black-blue out of way first. Imagine my shock when it turns out that one of the major colours is 3371, Nora's favourite brown! Not a colour I was expecting! If you squint at the model you can tell that there's brown, but at first glance? No way!


PS. I'm glad so many people are enjoying my giveaway. And if you haven't entered why not?

I'm with you, looks like black to me too. It's looking great Blu, I agree, if you did the green first you wouldn't want to carry on and do the rest!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I'm September - send her to me! Quite a few people on the Mira board are September too. I think Virgo is the perfect stitching sign - pernickety and focus on the details!
Looking forward to seeing "my" fairy grow!

She is gorgeous. No wonder you wanted to stitch her. Look forward to your progress.

I agree, May was a bit disappointing. I've decided to make the Lily-of-the-Valley fairy my birthday fairy instead.

I love this new fairy (but not for September). I think she will love fabulous without the wings.
