Tah....Dah.......Here comes "Sleeping Beauty"

So Ladies....here comes "Sleeping Beauty" one last time before it goes for its final make over (framing). This has been a very very long pending project - started in July 2006 and ended in Jan 2012.....almost 5.5 years.

Sleeping Beauty - 1/15/2012
 Ok......though I am really really excited to present the final display, I should say the pattern is only 99.9% complete. Yep...that is true. I am short of around 30 beads or so and you can see that gap on the left just above the border (between the two shades of blue beads). I have to order Mill Hill Beads now to fill that gap. Will have to wait until I make my next order from 1-2-3 stitch.

Oh no.....fell short of few beads on the left just above the border
 Now will be moving on to my third Mira project - Spring Queen.

Happy Dancing and Happy Stitching.


  1. Let me know what color bead it is and if I have it, I will send it to you.

    Sleeping Beauty is amazing. Congrats on finishing her.

  2. Tracy,

    Thanks for the offer. I fell short of Mill Hill 00252 (Iris Glass Beads) around 30 - 40 count. Was literally crossing my fingers when I realized that I might be short of the beads but hoping it won't :( Just few days back I ordered some stash from 123 stitch thinking I am done with buying. But now have to see what else is required to save on shipping ;)

    1. Unfortunately, I don't have that color. If I had it, I would have gladly mailed you what you needed.

      You know, 123stitch only charges $1.99 to start with on their shipping. It might be worth it to just pay the $1.99 and get only the pack of beads which are only $1.24. You are saving a few cents on the beads (because of their 10% discount) and you are saving money on tax and you are saving money on fuel by not having to drive somewhere to get the supplies you need. Buying more stash to save on the shipping, you will actually spend more than you had to.

      Hope you are able to get them real soon. :)

    2. That's fine Tracy and thanks for looking up.....I am planning kit up Primrose pixie. So will be ordering some more stash soon. So this missing bead will be included then. Hope I won't miss to order.
