Mirabilia and PTP Layovers

Helloooooo, fellow bloggers!! :D It's Friday and the weekend looms! What plans for the weekend?

Some of you are wondering what the fabbies from PTP are for. Ta-dah!!!! First the easy one...

Mermaid of Atlantis on Lagoon

Now comes the harder part. Initially, I was all set to stitch Ivy on Ancient, and Fern on Opal. But now I can't decide. I would like to have them on the same wall in our closet, and it would be nice for them to be on the same fabric, more cohesive. I still, however, prefer Ivy on Ancient, and Fern on Opal... but could be swayed, in either direction. ;)

If I stitch them on the same color fabric, this would mean I won't have to cut up 2 pieces of fat quarter, and can save the other piece for something bigger, or another 2 pixies.... but let's not get into more plans yet. LOL!!!

So, if I can pick your brains a bit....
1. Which combo(s) do you prefer?
2. Do you think it odd to have them in close proximity and on such different fabrics?

Ivy on Ancient (L); Ivy on Opal (R)


Fern on Ancient (L); Fern on Opal (R)

I think they both look better on the Ancient, the Opal looks a bit to pink.

I really like all 4 combinations. Oddly enough, I do like them better on Opal - they pop so nicely. I am saying 'oddly', since I am not normally a pink girl (but I am still in my "go with the bolder colors" phase, so that may be why...)

Either way, they will be gorgeous!
:-)

So, I have a quick and (sorry!) wierd question. Does it affect you that the fairies don't have faces? Are you thinking of adding some facial features, or do you find that the lef-out features is part of the charm of the fairies?
I prefer them both on ancient. I think the colors go together nicely!

I've actually been considering doing a Mirabilia mermaid for my next big project, so I'm interested to see how Mermaid of Atlantis comes along!

Might have to get a piece :)

MoA is going to look gorgeous on that Lagoon piece. For the Pixies, I would go with Ancient. There seems to be a bit of green tinge in it that I think will compliment their dresses. They would *pop* on the Opal but I'm not that keen with pink. Have a nice weekend!

I prefer both on ancient. Hugs Mireille

My slight OCD means if they are going to go next to each other i'd have to have the same fabby and like mostly everyone else I prefer Ancient for them both. They both look really good on the green.

In fact I like it so much I may have to buy some...

I don't think it will be odd to have them close to each other but on different fabrics. Love all the combos, but of they'll be on the same kind of fabric, then I vote for Ancient :D
Lesleyanne said…
I think they need to be the same if they are next to each other and I prefer Ancient.
I think both on Ancient - and it seems the general opinion is swinging that way too!

Good luck choosing, hope this helps. :)

Ancient! Mind you they both look good on either! Mmmmmmm Tough Call! My OCD tells me Keep them the same!

I like them both on Ancient. The colors are a better match than on Opal. I would save the Opal for something else. And I think your mermaid is going to be stunning!!!
Anne said…
I'm for Ancient. That is both of them on Ancient. It will have the same tones as Lagoon (blues, greens, etc).
Jennifer M. said…
I vote for both to be stitched on Ancient. The other fabric is too pinky for the colors combinations in the designs.

I LOVE! that Mermaid Pattern. I want it! I picked up a Mirabilia Mermaid, but I don't think it was that one.

Look forward to your stitching progress on these.

Hi Joyce, I just return from my workshop( a wonderful time ) and I discover with great pleasure your new post : hum!!! for me, I really think that both of them look gorgeous on either color with maybe a little preference for Ancient !
Your mermaid will look gorgeous on your fabric: when do you think on starting on her ??
Have a nice week-end,

Hi Joyce - I have been thinking about your dilemma and I have come back for a second look and Ancient it is for both (just).

At the end of the day - do whatever you want to do as long as it makes you happy!
Novia said…
