Ivy - All Dressed Up

We hit Joann's after work last Wednesday night, and totally fell in love with this blue fabric for Ivy. It was the perfect shade of the kreinik in her wings and in hubby's words, "It's spectacular!"



As I previously mentioned, I'm stitching about 6-7 of Nora's Pixie Couture line for our closet. Since it's a dressing area, why not deck it out in fashion and fabric? :) We hung up Fern and Ivy, and the others will go on the perpendicular wall.



Many of you are wondering what my next pixie will be. I haven't quite decided... I have the bead kit for Sweet Pea, so that would be the most logical. However, I'm stitching Orchid for a friend and I think that will have to be next.

The Maiden, (I'm going to answer you here as I can't reply to your email) I'm very tempted with Lilac... so she might be my 7th! :D

OH! It would be nice if I told you guys the other pixies I'll be stitching huh? ;) Sweet Pea, Lilly, Bluebell, and Gardenia... possibly Lilac (Vanessa sent me a piece of PTP's Masquerade and I'm in LOVE!)

Lilac would look outrageously perfect on that fabric, you must do it! I will have serious FABRIC ENVY on this one. Sweet Pea was my first Pixie, it is a quick stitch. I cannot wait to see your fabric! The Maiden

Ivy looks so pretty! Oh no...you had to go and bring Lilac into this. I have her all kitted. I really just need to pull my Miras out and start stitching them already! She looks great on the masquerade!

A stunning finish. Love the fabric you have for lilac - it is perfect. I think you should stitch her next.

Your Miras are gorgeous!
The closet is a fabulous idea, I am running out of walls, but our closet is still empty. Since I am spending uite a lot of time there, it can be a perfect place for some finishes...
