Easter Fairy WIP Wednesday update

Having a LOT of fun with this one. The stitching is going smoothly, and there have been no hiccups thus far. That being said, keep away, Mr. Frog! 

I am thinking that I will be changing some of the colors in this one. I am not too jazzed with the Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Wasabi used in the wings. Due to the kelly green color of the fabric, this is not going to work at ALL. I am right now waffling between converting them to shades of pale blue to match the flowers on her dress, or a very pale lavender color, which would pick up the slight purple tinge in the Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Betty Bluebell, Blue Beatrice, and Blueberry Tart. I am also seriously contemplating stitching natural colored grass instead of the beads used next to the eggs in the basket. While I love the beadwork everywhere else, I think it detracts from the eggs a bit. 

Welp, here are my efforts so far: 

Design: The Easter Fairy (Limited Edition kit)

Designer: Nora Corbett 

Fabric Used: 28 count linen in Crystal Spring

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Baby Chick, Bella Rosa, Betty Bluebell, Blue Beatrice, Blueberry Tart, Bramble Bush, Fool's Gold, Sassy Brass, St. Bernard, Tufted Yellow, Wasabi, and Zach Black. Kreinik (#4) Braid in #3223 Ametrine

Bling Used: Mill Hill glass seed beads in size 11/0 #02010 Ice 

What she eventually will look like:

Lavender wings definitely! Love the rich green fabric. A very bold choice that will make for a beautiful finish!
