Trick or Treat Fairy Update and a Fast Finish

A quick post updating my Halloween Fairy (Trick or Treat Fairy) from the September 2008 Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. She's coming along nicely. I was hoping to be a bit further along than I am, however, I got distracted by a small kit by Shepherd's Bush. I really wanted to stitch something quick and summery, and this fit the bill. WIP pictures first, then onto the finish, yea?
