Joining in the fun!

Hi everyone :)

My name is Lisa and I'm just getting back into stitching after a long break. I'm so glad I've been able to join this group as one of the things I loved about stitching was the community and I'm looking to find that community again!

So Friday Frolics for me was a bit weird this week as there was a bit of drama going on in my house that night (which is so unusual) so I quit early.

The WIP I have been working on is Persephone by Mirabilia. I'm not sure how long I will stick to one WIP as I used to work on several at a time but now, after such a long break, I am loving working on just one thing and enjoying the process.

Before (and not ironed)

After (and ironed!)
Persephone is stitched using the called for DMC and Caron Waterlily silk threads. I've chosen to stitch her on Picture this Plus 32 count linen in the Rosewood colour. I left the qsnap on for months and I can see where the fabric has faded I'm hoping once the design has been finished it will not be as noticeable.

Happy stitching, Lisa


  1. it's such a pretty design Lisa, well done to you for picking it up again after so long...

  4. Welcome back to stitching! She's beautiful.
