It's been awhile since I've posted, because I have been focusing on a few models. I have gotten my fabric for The Kiss, and I hope to start that soon. I also have Mirabilia's new Emerald Mermaid on order, and it will be hard to wait on that start! In the meantime, I have been doing a little stitching on Woodland Fairy. I need to get her done soon so I can get a frame for her and my lonely Middy! :)

After going through my stash again and again, I've decided my next new project will be Mirabilia's Woodland Fairy, which mirrors Middy. I think they will be nice framed together. I had started The Kiss on 28 ct fabric, but did not like the coverage. So I ordered some 32 ct linen, and am waiting on that to come in before I do any more work on that. I've seen a lot of others' work on 28ct, and it looked fine. I'm wondering if the store sent me the wrong count? Oh well! On to Woodland Fairy in the meantime. Here's a pic after two days of stitching. I'm doing her on 32 ct "Impressionism" from Sugar Maple Fabrics. Enjoy!

Yay! She's done! I think the beading took longer than the stitching! :) But she's done, and in about a month. My quickest finish ever. She is now my favorite completed piece (at least until I finish my next one!)
