princess crown

My goal for this weekend was to finish the crown on Bluebeard's Princess, and I just managed to squeak it in. :)  I'm actually missing two stitches of the very dark blue, but I'll add those after posting!

The backstitch makes such a difference!  The fish/eels look amazing now.

I can't wait to get started on Mirabella herself!  And Jo, thanks for the tip about moving the border, she does look squashed and the ends of her hair look artificially cut off to fit in the border.  I'll definitely be expanding so she can fit in there comfortably. :)

Off to sneak in another few stitches before bed...


  1. A lovely crown, indeed fit for a princess.

  2. The crown looks great.
    Good luck with the next bit of stitching.

    Hugs Yvon.

  3. looks great! i love the gold thread one. are you using kreinik/DMC gold? lovely! :)

  4. Glad you appreciated the tip. I was grateful to receive it and like to pass it on!
    I also added some extra stitches to the right hand side of her hair.

  5. Looks good, Rahenna. Keep up the good work!!
