UFO Finish!

Woohoo! Finally a finish and a long term UFO at that! I had to wait until I could get the beads, but I managed to earlier today. I may put a purple collar on the kitty at a later time, but for right now, this one is done. :)

Here are the pertinents and such:

Design: Halloween Fairy (Trick or Treat Fairy) from the September 2008 Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine

Designer: Nora Corbett 

Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Fog by Picture This Plus from their Crystal (opalescent) line.

Fibers Used:  DMC in 300, 451, 452, 779, 838, 869, 920, 922, 948, 3354, 3371, and 3743. Kreinik (#4) Braid in #002 HL #008 HL Green, #102 Vatican Gold, #150V Vintage Amber, Blending Filament in #092 Star PinkRainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid in PB44 (Autumn Red). Glissen Gloss Sparkle metallic in SP01

Beads Used: Mill Hill beads in 00556 Antique Silver, 02011 Victorian Gold, 02023 Root Beer, 02034 Autumn Flame, 03049 Rich Red, and 42014 Petite Black. 

Stitcher's notes: As of this writing, I do not know where the chart for the kitty came from. S/he was found in a binder of cross stitch charts that I had for a long time and I tweaked the design to fit how I needed it to fit. The chart itself has no designer information such as name, blog, etc. Should I find the designer, I will be happy to post a link to the designer and give him/her credit. Began stitching on Saturday, September 21, 2008.

Well, I had best be off. Need to clean up my stitching area and get ready for WIP Wednesday tomorrow. No rest for the wicked :D!

Congrats on a fabulous finish! I have this one in my to-do pile. I didn't realize how many beads are in this until I saw your close up photos.
It's lovely, and you did a beautiful job!

She's so lovely! Congrats on such a lovey finish. All that metallic thread and beading would have driven me crazy, but you did it like a champ!
