L - Disney Alphabet Cross Stitch


It's week three already! How did that happen? I don't think I need a personal explanation of my "L" choice, simply because I covered my feelings about her in "C-Cinderella". But there are other reasons why I love her (yep, I love villains...it's a character defect on my part). Problem is, I think I'm gonna wait until "M" (I keep saying "M" is a biggie) to explain those reasons because the two are intertwined in more ways than one. Bout the only thing I can tell you about "L" is that had to get CloudsFactory to manipulate her name differently than she appears on their other charts because "T" was needed for another character.

So, without all the pomp and circumstance of the others (besides, you can read all about her in "C" and tomorrow's "M") -

"L" is for Lady Tremaine:

Some of you may have also noticed that there are no dots on my i's this time. I can't do french knots. I was using "cheat" knots (basically knotting the end of the thread and feeding it in backwards), but they weren't holding. I then switch it to beads, but they were too big. I'm still trying to decide what to do about the i's, but until then, I have dotless i's.

I used to cross-stitch all the time, now I haven't the time. I can actually do a french knot...

I used to be able to do french knots, but I don't know if I can anymore. It's been a long time since I've embroidered. I think the i's look fine without a dot.

Can't say I'm too fond of Lady Tremaine, but you've done a great job on her.

There are definitely some gaps in my Disney knowledge because I don't know who this woman is. But at least I know the name now! Thanks! (And good luck with the dotted "i"s.)

I love her hair! I never knew her name as Lady Tremaine, only as the "Wicked Stepmother." Now I'm happy to learn something new today!

Another cute one Keebles. Don't worry about doting the i's. They look fine.
