A mirabilia

It's been awhile since I stitched a Mirabilia. I've started Venetian Opulence a couple of weeks ago. Not much to see as I only stitched on it for a couple of hours. The fabric is a soft pink 32ct lugana by Enchanted Fabrics called Bubblegum. It is actually a little bit lighter than shown in the picture.

Speciality stitches

I have completed another two parts on Tree of Stitches. These two parts consisted of algerian eyelets and rice stitches. I skipped the french knots for now. I will tackle them later.

More Portals

The portals on the top part of the design are completed except for some backstitching. I've really forced myself to finish the backstitch, but I was getting too frustrated especially since most of the backstitch is stitched with metallic thread. I am very happy with my progress.

The picture is not the best as I am having problems with the memory card of the camera and I need to buy a new one.
