Giggles done

I should have known that feeling like stitching something that normally would drive me crazy didn't bode well. While the beginning of my beading day last week started with quiet beading time, the next part was for sleeping. I just couldn't keep my eyes open. That's a problem when the kids are wide awake! It was the beginning of a nasty cold - the kind that slowly gets passed around the entire family.

So for the last few days, I've had sleepy little ones curled up on my lap while I finished beading. My Giggles in the Snow Boy from Mirabilia Designs is done. I found some nice blue fabric for a backing and I will finish it into a wall hanging this week. He came out nicely I think - but it will be a while before I start the girl.

I have a bunch of ornaments to get stitched and finished in the next few weeks. I have some Valerie Pfeiffer chicks - specifically Christmas Chick and Golfer Chick. Then I saw a Mirabilia fairies Round Robin on another blog this weekend (I'll add the link when I remember which blog it was). The blogger had stitched Lilly's head on her pillow and she looked great. So, now I'm checking out each of the Mirabilia ladies to determine which heads are suitable for ornaments. I also need to do one more of the Kreinik freebie snowmen.

And I just received my Christmas Eve Couriers charts! Must start them too!


  1. Wow, Giggles in the Snow is gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing your wallhanging:)

    I hope you are all feeling much better soon.

  2. I love this design! I have the chart too! It's the first time on your blog but not the last one ;)

  3. Your Snow Boy is wonderful! I've always loved these designs. Mirabilia does the most beautiful works...there are just too many of them!

    Congratulations on getting your giggles done. You did an awesome job!
    Christmas Chick and Golfer Chick sound so cute. I have a cycling jersey I ride when I am on my bicycle. It says Biker Chick it's a chick on a bike seat. Very cute! I think this would be cute as a cross stitch don't you? I hope you all get to feeling better soon. (((HUGS))).

    Hi, Your Giggles is gorgeous! This is one I have in my stash too. It's not one you see stitched often on the stitching blogs so it was nice to come across yours.

    I love the little Chicks too. Remind me of the Sitting Pretty I stitched for my mum.
