New project

Thanks for your nice comments on my Lanarte finish: it's nice you haven't forgotten me. ( makes me happy)
So here it is: new year, new project. I chose Lilly by Nora Corbett mainly because I had the perfect fabric to go with it. I don't remember the name of the fabric or the name of the company. I bought it from Lady of stitches on Ebay. The fabric is really beautiful. Lilly is a beautiful design but I'm a little disapointed by the color of her dress: they are quite dull. I should have checked for some color conversions on the internet. I have to recognize it's relaxing to only stitch 3 or 4 colors and I really hope the fabric will make the design stand out.

Your fabric is beautiful! I find that with most Mirabilia. The thread colors are usually much duller than the photos. I was disappointed in Royal Holiday's dress as I thought it was yellow and it was shades of beige. But when it was all done, I was very happy with her. Hang in there.

Crap... now I have "project envy". I LOVE that design and I think your fabric will pop those colors. If you become disappointed in her, you can throw her at ME !

It's a lovely fabric so maybe the drabness of the dress will look good better on it.
