Stitch Maynia: Day 8 Persephone

Day 8 was my first ever Mirabilia Design! This is Persephone on 32 count Jobelan Diva by Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.

This is how far I got on the first day.  This greenish yellow color is part of the shading on the right side of her dress bodice.

Here is a full view of the gorgeous fabric!

Here is more progress after my second stitching session.  In all of the fun of Stitch Maynia, I have somehow misplaced all of the threads I sorted out to use for this project :(  Well I am sure they are somewhere in my stash closet...

Here is another picture where the fabric is showing more true to life and you can get a bitter image of Persephone.  I'm not sure if I plan to stitch the Art Deco water lilies in the background or not, but I'm sure I will have a long time before I will have to decide ;)

Until the next time...Happy Stitching!
