Cinderella Castle finally framed!

by DisneyStitcher » Mon Mar 20, 2017 1:17 am


As many of you know, I came to the forum searching for Mickey and the Fireman. In the meantime, my daughter graduated college and did the Disney college internship program. She came back with a matte board signed by many Disney characters and a plea for me to "cross stitch something for the middle." I happened to have a very old (circa 1989) kit featuring Cinderella's castle and an old Leisure Arts booklet with a Sorcerer Mickey. I did both but everyone agreed the castle looked better. For her recent birthday we finally had it framed. I'm sorry the picture is such poor color quality, if she can get me a better one, I'll repost. The frame is actually a lovely, medium blue and not the grayish cast the photo seems to show as is all the turret roofs - blues, not grays. I was so afraid the whole thing was going to look like a giant pinterest fail, but instead it really came out great. The picture really doesn't do it justice. I spent over 1 1/2 hours trying to find a frame at the frame shop and was really disappointed with everything - then the girl says "OH, wait!" and goes to an obscure corner in the shop and brings me the blue frame with the built in silver inner lining -- PERFECTION! I love it when something goes right. :wub:

You had to know I wouldn't be able to resist commenting on this one. 8) What a fabulous idea to have the characters sign the mat. Your daughter is one smart cookie. Did she enjoy her college internship? I have several friends' kids that have done it. It seems that most of them either loved it or hated it.

Thank you sooo much for posting this picture. :D

Thanks everyone! She promises to get me a better picture and I'll repost it when she does. AlwaysGoofy, yes after a bit of a rough start - she LOVED it. The only reason she didn't accept an offer to stay was because the boy was waiting for her at home. :roll: But - he's a great boy to keep around and I doubt she was going to be making enough money to support herself so I guess it all worked out in the end. :lol:
