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.


  1. Congratulations on finishing Elizabeth! She's so lovely and elegant. Mmm... yummy stash. Can you tell I'm drooling here? Looking forward to your new starts.
