Week 23 Beauty and the Beast

I really hope I haven't hit a wall.

I have not had quite as much motivation to stitch lately, which is really weird. I saved all of the characters for last for the sole purpose of NOT losing motivation towards the end. I think what I have run into is that stitching Belle with the pearl filament added is a little bit of a nightmare. Add to it all of the fractional stitches involved and how much confetti there is in her dress, and I didn't make much progress this week. I didn't even finish Belle... I'm kind of ashamed, but I know I needed to post my progress anyway. Maybe this will motivate me to stitch like a mad, crazy woman this week and get a ton done...

Anyway, here is my progress for the week. And even with all of my complaining, I do love how the sparkly thread is turning out. The picture doesn't do it justice at all, and as hard as it is I am happy I made the choice to stitch her sparkly. :)


  1. It is hard to keep up the motivation sometimes but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end!

  2. Hi

    Your project is looking lovely, you've done loads of stitching on it.

  3. Did you ever finish it? I'm really wanting to know!
    I haven't been working on mine for a few months. I get bored with cross stitch, and move on to something else. I'll get back to it eventually, though. I never got as far as you have, though. It looks amazing!
