A quick post

It is Cathey's Birthday next week and she received my birthday gift yesterday. It's a compact mirror. I'd seen it before I sent to Celebration and I couldn't pass it up. I think the metallic thread I used to out line it looks great. It gives the piece a little extra something.


The last Mirabilia fairy is out. She is the Thanksgiving Harvest Fairy. I'm sad to say I don't care for her at all. I was so looking forward to the last one. Maybe I'm disappointed because i didn't think Thanksgiving would be the last holiday... but, I really don't like the way she looks.


I've been doing a little stitching but, I've not gotten enough done lately to feel like I can show a scan of what I've done. Hopefully soon.

The new fairy does not appeal to me either.

Great present! I'm sure she loves it. I also think this fairy is pretty unattractive.

THANK YOU SO MUCH again Jenn :o) I just LOVE my new compact and you did such a beautiful job.

I'm not really excited about these fairies. My favorite has been the Christmas one all along.

The compact came out great. The metallic did help it alot!
That was a great present you gave her.

Very pretty present, the pink ribbon turned out lovely. As to the Thanksgiving fairy, I didn't like her either. Not sure what it is about it, but it just doesn't seem to work.

I agree about the Thanksgiving Fairy... I don't HATE it, but its by far my least favorite.

I have not been impressed with the new Fairys apart from The Christmas Elf, which I will stitch again one day in a diff colour.

Love the Pocket Mirror, what a great pressie.

The compact is such a great idea! I like the colors in this fairy, but her proportions seem off.
