Marie, Beauty and the Beast.

Hello everybody !

I hope that you are all enjoying this beautiful season !
As you already know it, I'm working on many new starts, and today, I want to present you the first one !

This is Beauty and the Beast, from Gustafson.

I'm stitching it on a new fabric that I discovered. It's called "Colmar", 25 count. It is between Dublin and Lugana. In fact, this fabric is not regular (as the Dublin), and it is rigid like the Lugana.
I really enjoy stitching of it, and the design Beauty and the Beast... What an enchantment to work on...

Here is my first update :

I wish you all a great week, and I just want to tell you that it's fabulous to be here, with you all.

Happy Stitching !!!

Ooooh wow Marie!! This is a gorgeous design! I haven't seen this one before. Love your new start and I really love your theory, that you have to enjoy the journey instead of the destination.
I'm still in a doubt to start a new HAED as well. I already have 5 WIP's on the run, maybe you can convince me. I would love to start "Santa Claus at the North Pole". I have it already kitted up, just have to start :)

Can't wait to see your other starts :)

Very nice and it will be awesome when you finish. I'm still hiding my XMAS but hopefully in the new year I will be pulling it out to work on it again,,,along with the Northern Tranquility. Bring on 2010! Be always in stitches.

Thanks for sharing:)

This really is a great first step on a wonderful path. Like the Chinese say:
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step (Lao-tzu). May your steps inspire you to enjoy the journey.

It's a beautiful design, Marie. Did you see that a week ago HAED posted on their BB that there was a correction for this chart? Apparently the right side wasn't charted properly. You might want to check your chart or email HAED to make sure that you have the corrected version. I look forward to seeing updates of this one.

Oh I love it! The wax dripping down the candles, the tapestry on the wall in the background, the chair he's sitting in...I can't wait for you to bring it to life!!!!

His Sleeping Beauty is on my wish list.
