Petal Fairy HD!

Here she is at last! Stitched on the recommended fabric with the recommended threads and beads. Started not long after the chart came out, though I can't remember exactly when. I do know she was my oldest WIP though, so it's a long awaited happy dance!

She's put away in the cupboard now. I'm thinking I'll give her to my niece for her birthday next year, so she won't get framed until we're back in the UK.

Before you ask (and some of you already have!), I won't be starting anything new just yet to replace her. I'm working on Mystery VIII right now as the Chatelaine bug has bitten hard again. I do have other Mirabilias I want to do though. Next up will either be a Queen I think or possibly Royal Holiday. I have possible fabric for that one and possible fabric for Summer Queen too.

  4. Nicki, she's GORGEOUS!!! What a wonderful photo of her too. Your lucky niece, I'm sure she'll love it. :) I had the most fun stitching the last bits of Petal Fairy than any of the rest because I knew you & Harsha were stitching it too. :) I'm a bit sad we're all done!!
