The Green Monster is done!

With all this plotting and planning and stashing, yes, I have actually squeezed in some stitching.  

And as is appropriate with so much planning for new projects, I'm pushing to get Sleeping Beauty finished.   There's still quite a bit to do, but I'm slowly but steadily working through it.   Of significance, I FINALLY finished the green monster, aka her skirt, yesterday!

This was the ONLY time working on any Mirabilia where I had to go back and work 10x10 grid squares on the pattern.   As I've mentioned before, there is not only the shading between darker greens into white, but also leaving the swirls open for beading.   Argh!   It was a complicated process to be sure, but it's finally done.

As you can see, I'm working on adding more roses, of which there are plenty still to go.   I will probably work my way out to the right border and finish that first, then work my way back and fill in areas that I have done some of the work but not completed (lots of that!).

It may have been a pain, but it's a gorgeous skirt, so I think it should be forgiven. LOL.
