Royal Holiday

I seem to have gotten a lot of her done this week.  I was really focused on working on the gold of the skirt and getting that completed, which I nearly did.   There's still a bit at the bottom that needs to get done.  I also have to go back and fill in all the scrollwork in the skirt itself, which is some dark brown DMC, two different metallics and a few beads.   But still....a lot completed!

Sleeping Beauty

I've been working on Sleeping Beauty for the last two and a half weeks - making a lot of great progress, as you can see!    There always seems to be a point in a project where you turn a corner after feeling like you're not even close and then suddenly, you're nearly done.   I've really been enjoying working on her so her originaly scheduled one week of attention has been stretched out.

I don't think I'll stick with her past the end of this week, but next time around in rotation will definately be time to finish her up.   She already has a replacement project kitted and ready to go (as always LOL)

Royal Holiday will be up next in 2 weeks.

Letter C Happy Dance!

At 730pm PST Friday, I finished Letter C. I am so happy! This is a Sweet Sixteen gift for my niece, Cristina. I hope she likes it!
It was stitched as recommended on 32 count Waterlily belfast with the listed threads. I hardly use recommended fabric with Mirabilias but the Waterlily just seemed to go.

Thanks for looking...

Letter C Progress

I've been forgetting to include my progress on Letter C here. I've completed quite a bit more from this photo taken the last weekend in June and am hoping to complete it by week's end. I'll be sure to post another photo when it's finished!
Thanks for looking!
