Little Miss O Is Finished!!!

Put the last of the beads in about 10 minutes ago. I had a true conversion on one of the beads, I substituted the called for pearl for a buttercup yellow. The pearl just got washed out and I wasn't happy with the way it looked. I found these in my stash, so it was nice to not have to run out and get just one thing. :)

I am very, VERY pleased with the way this has turned out. It went so QUICKLY once I was dealing with the correct fairy, haha! Well, enough of my blathering. Here she is, Little Miss O, in all her glory:

Design: Letters from Nora Letter O

Designer: Nora Corbett 

Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Crystal Fog

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Argyle Socks, Bejeweled, Cloud, Cobbled Peach, Desert Mesquite, Heatherleigh, Hickory Sticks, Hydrangea, La Tierra, Old Blue Jeans, Vintage Violet, Wisconsin Woods. Kreinik (#4) Braid in Blue Merengue #3514.  

Bling Used: Mill Hill glass seed beads in #00252 Iris, size 11/0 2.5 MM and #62041 in Buttercup in Size 11. 

As of Wednesday, April 30, 2014:

As of Thursday, May 1, 2014 845 PM PST:

She's framed with just the Q-Snaps right now, but I need to begin the quest for the appropriate frame for her. I will be framing her myself, so I need to start that probably on Monday. 

Well, I had best be off. I need to clean up my stitchy room and get the next fairy ready to go. I have more than a few of these lined up, so I better get to it. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
