It's good to be the Queen....



Or Christmas Queen, aka Royal Holiday.   I really should warn any of you who are considering doing any of the Mirabilia Queens.  

They're addictive.

I'm now moaning over the fact that after I finish Royal Holiday, there's only Queen of Freedom left to do.  Nevermind that I have a long way to go over my currently-headless Queen.



She's actually working up fairly quickly.   I spent a week with her last November, and this is after working on her the second full week. 

I've decided to just use DMC white floss to substitute for the Wisper in the cloak (which I refuse to use - hate it!).   I did that with Autumn Queen;   on Winter Queen, I used a blend of white floss and white metallic.   I don't think Royal needs the extra sparkle of the blend.

Wow. I envy your quick stitching. And only one Queen left to do-awesome. This one is coming along beautifully. I like the idea of white floss and white metallic in place of the Whisper. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, for working on this for only a couple of weeks, you've made a lot of progress. I know what you mean about those designs being addictive. I hadn't done one of hers in a while and then my sister asked me to do Queen Mermaid for her. How I loved working on that piece! It was so much fun and never a dull moment working on it. Your progress so far looks wonderful.

She sure is looking beautiful. You have encouraged me to pick mine back up! And I'm using the Wisper!!
