April 28, 2012:
She's finished!!! My beads arrived yesterday and I was able to finish Elizabeth. My youngest son Christopher (5) helped. I was amazed that he was able to get the petite beads on the needle but he did a great job. I can't wait to get her framed!
Christopher did such a wonderful job that I'm going to let him try his own project. I went through my stash today and we were able to find a Lion King pattern book, tomorrow off to find some 14 ct Aida so he can start the project.
Along with my beads I received two new Mirabilia patterns: Stargazer, and The Feather Fairy. They are going to go into my rotation as soon as I decide which fabric will work the best for each.
I also received my fabric for Heaven Above. It is a 40 ct tea dyed linen:
And last but definitely not least I received my first two Joan Elliott Designs. The fabric for each is on order from Polstitches:
Today I've been working most of the day on Miss Valentine by Nora Corbett. I will post progress pictures tomorrow.
