Cinderella is Finished!!!


I have been dancing a big jig in my living room tonight!! Around 8:30 pm I put the finishing stitches in Cinderella!!!! I started her in August 2008 and I finally put the last bead in tonight. I think however I am going to add a small detail that the pattern didn't call for orginially. I am thinking of ordering some Just Nann mouse beads to have them following her as she runs....since the mice do play an important part of the story!!


The next big pattern that I plan to stitch on is my Historical Fashions piece...so back in history here I go!!!!

Wow, she looks absolutely amazing and I like the idea of the mice, it'll make it a bit individual!

Also, adore the historical costumes kit, so I'll be keeping an eye out to see how you're going. Good luck!

Congratulations on this awesome finish. It certainly took you a while to stitch this.
Have you already organized all the DMC flosses? Must be such a delight.
