Sleepy September

Here is the piece that gives today's post its title, Andie's Mirabilia Round Robin with Dreamers as the theme:

And some close-ups so you can see the bling:

And one of the whole piece so far:

The top space is empty for Andie to stitch Sleeping Beauty, then it's followed by The Dreamer stitched by Orchid Julie and Sleeping Princess stitched by Karen Stitchy Woman and finally my Lilly of the Woods.

I posted this piece off to New Zealand last Friday expecting it to take a week-ten days to arrive.  I got an email from Andie on the Tuesday saying it was there!!  Less than 3 working days to cross the world!!  Amazing.

Also for September I had the JBW Alphabet Kitty for September:

The charm for this month is a lovely acorn pin I received from Shirlee some time ago.  The fabric is a tan 28 count evenweave and the thread is a Stef Francis variegated.  I was going for an Autumn Leaves effect.

And talking of Autumn, here is my latest progress on Just Nan's Autumn Typography:

Not too sure about that bright orange in the row of leaves under the large Autumn.  They look a little like Chinese words rather than leaves.  I'll see how it looks at the end.  I have a boring border to stitch and the squirrels plus another crow then it's all done.  I like it alot!

Finally, as more people move to Google Plus, I wonder if they are aware that their email does not necessarily follow them there.  I've had comments from people that used to have emails attached to their profile but now appear as "No-Reply".  So if you've moved recently and haven't had an email response from a comment you've left me then that is why.


  1. Beautiful stitching, especially your cat finish (:
    Happy weekend.

  2. Great work on everything. Love the kitty.

  3. The Mirabilia RR looks awesome, and I just love the monthly kitties.

  4. Congrats on the great finishes Jo. I'm still lovin' that autumn sampler.


  5. Wonderful pieces and stitching

  6. They truly live up to their name. I had a tiny nanna nap after looking at those sleepy ladies. Unfortunately at the time I was at work! Nice bling work Jo. Love the acorn pin too, it sets the theme nicely. I think the leaves look good, but then I love anything bright and vibrant. LOL!!

    I like Autumn as it is but maybe it looks a bit different IRL.

    That RR is simply stunning. No 2 ways about it, I love it. I would love to do a Mira RR but as I haven't got time, seeing others is the next best thing.
