Twenty Three Weeks:
This is a shameful, shameful update. I worked on Belle this week, and I didn't even finish her. I maybe got in 600 stitches? Nowhere near my goal of 2000 per week. She's just so difficult to stitch! I am working with the pearl filament which keeps wanting to tangle or break or come unthreaded, so I have to go super slow to make sure I don't wreck it. There are also lots of fractional stitches and her dress is basically 100% confetti stitches. All that being said, I love the effect the shiny thread has on the dress. The picture absolutely does not do it justice. I will try to have her finished and some other stitching done for next week. I better, or I will never finish in time for the fair!

Oh yeah, and let's see some updates on the other Disney Dreams! No matter how little progress it may seem like you've made, every stitch counts and sometimes you don't realize how much you've done until you see pictures. :)

Me too! I am 95% sure I will be getting this kit. Still want to see how the Lion King one turns out, first. :D

You're doing a great job with it. I'm currently working on the Cinderella one but the Beauty and the Beast one looks gorgeous!
You're working really fast too by the way. I've been doing mine for a little under a month and I've not even gotten to 1/4 of it done, lol

I haven't touched this project in AGES, until this last week. I think it took an 18 month break, which I am ashamed to say. In that time I had another baby, a little boy who will be 1 in just a couple of weeks. Oh, and his middle name is Hero :) Not even joking :) Anyway, I made a little bit of progress this last week and thought I would post an update. Here it is:

I am hoping to finish this in the next couple of months, because I want the Sleeping Beauty and the Little Mermaid kits, too. And I already have the Snow White kit... I'm crazy :)
