Cinderella - Final look before framing

So here are some of the closeups of the beautiful Cinderella that I ever finished. Yes I did it. Love the pic so much that I can't turn my eyes from seeing these pics. The piece is getting ready for final finishing - framing at the Nick's frame shop. Thanks Tracy for the tips that you have given which made my life much easier in picking up the frame. Hope it looks as I see it. :)

Gifted this beautiful princess to my dearest sister (who has no interest in cross stitching but admires beautiful hand made works)

Mirabilia Cinderella  May 2011 to Dec 2011

My 2012 stitching goals

Yeah....for the first time I am "planning" to have some stitching goals........

1. Finish the beading work for Mirabilia Sleeping Beaty..... (Yeah this project was started in 2006 and still pending).

2. Mirabilia Spring Queen - Saw some finished work on Mirabilia groups on Facebook and am immediately attracted to this fairy. Vibrant colors....lots of beading a very eye pleasing design......

3. Ellen Maurer - Bunny Baby - A pleasant surprise for my dear sis who is going to have her baby soon (Already started the project but am not happy with the 3 strands. I think I will redo it again with a 2 strand).

4. Lavendar and Lace Isabella's garden - my first L&L project. 

Just ordered my new stash for these projects from 123-stitch. I wish all my readers a very Happy New Year and  Happy Stitching...... :)
