Coming along nicely...


Sleeping Beauty is coming along nicely.  I am invoking executive privilege and will continue to work on Sleeping Beauty for an additional week. I wanted to get some more of the pesky roses done as there are quite a few, and I don't want to leave it all until the end. They're pesky because while beautiful, there's a lot of confetti-like stitching in them.  I wanted to get some work done on the top border this week and just didn't get to it.

I did get most of the green swirly swag of the skirt done and am currently working on the upper part where it's blue and white shaded.   You can't see the blue stitching too well on this picture so I took a close up.  This is going to look spectacular when it's beaded.

I have to say, I am tempted to keep working on her until she's finished at this point.  Not only do I have lots of other Miras crying to be started, but I just love this design and it's been fun to work on.   We'll see how I feel about it next Friday LOL   Knotgarden is up next and I really want to work on that as well.

You're right! She is going to be spectacular; she already is. I just can't get over the amount of stitching and color changes in these kinds of patterns. Way beyond my patience level. I really enjoy watching them come to life though.

Oh my goodness, she is beautiful. I have had this pattern in my stash for years, along with a bunch of others from her, and they always come out so wonderful. Love your fabric choice for this design too. Just stunning!
