Update with pics

Here is my little "Reading" girl - so cute.  (Although the picture on the package - which is NOT a stitched model, just the computer-generated preview - makes the dress look more blue than mine appears.  I looked for some finished pics online, and found that this seems to be a result of the dyed floss batches.  I may look in my stash for a darker purple to use for the border, and/or an actual BLUE to use for the 2 little birds.)

And look what has reappeared!!  It is Fairy Tale Towne, my ambitious attempt at the Me, Myself and I round robin.  Obviously I am better at robins that involve some sort of group responsibility...LOL.  I'm still loving the idea of this little town, but I'm not thrilled with the 32-ct. fabric -- especially since there is so much confetti stitching in the patterns I've chosen so far.  All the grays in that castle are driving me mad!

I do like the Reading design, your daughter will love it.
What's a Me Myself and I RR? Is it one where just one person stitches all the parts? I'm thinking of doing something similar for my Joan Elliott projects as it's the only way I'd ever get them stitched! I have so many.

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
