Week 21 Beauty and the Beast and IHSW

So, I know that it's not the end of the weekend, but I wanted to go ahead and post my progress from this last week on Beauty and the Beast so I can get to the next part. :)
I did somewhere around 3000 stitches this week (maybe a little more?), and that is AWESOME! If I can keep this up, I will have it done no problem in time for the fair. The trick is keeping it up... If nothing else, I have allowed myself a little leeway.
I finished the second overpass and all of the water for the waterfalls, I stitched the stairway, and some more greenery below the castle. And what is that I see an outline of? It's Belle! So, so excited that the characters will start to come into play. I won't stitch her this next week though, because I have a question:

I have quite a bit of the 'pearly' filament that makes the rainbow and the sunset all sparkly, and there are only a couple of other spots that need it. I am thinking about also stitching Belle's dress with the sparkly thread - what do you think? Let me know, and I will hopefully be able to stitch Belle during week 23. I am hoping to see Mrs. Potts and Chip this week though!


  1. It is looking beautiful. I think making Belles dress shine will look so pretty.

  2. I think its a great idea, or atleast use it to highlight some of the dress. But I really think you might need to leave her till last, just incase something unexpected clashes with the added sparkle. Its a lot of unpicking if you don't like it....

  3. This is looking great! You will be finished in no time!

  4. Jenilee, it's looking fabulous. I love the colors in that. Another one to add to my list of things I want to do, lol. (That list is about six hundred items long at this point. I'll never make it!!) Grats on the progress!!

  5. Hi Jenilee, I'm a new follower :)

    Beauty and the Beast is looking great! I just love it - makes me want to watch the movie. I don't think I would be able to resist the temptation to stitch Belle... I think belle's dress would look great in the sparkly string.

    Happy Stitching!!!


  6. That looks fabulous. You're really coming along beautifully.
