I Present... Sabrina!

She's done, she's done!! Isn't she gorgeous, as she daintily rests against the fence, gazing out into whatever seems to hold her so spellbound?

She was fun to stitch and boy, there was a heck of a lot of beads that went into her dress.I was tempted to count as I beaded , but who am I kidding?! I probably used about 3.5 packs of the petite black beads, there were so many of those suckers, but they do add a lot of intricacies to the lacy effect of her dress. The gold and teal beads sparkle beautifully when the light hits.

The Particulars:
Sabrina by Mirabilia
Fabric: Ancient, 32ct hand-dyed linen by Picture This Plus
Stitched 2 over 2
Floss: DMC, Kreinik
Beads: Mill Hill
Finished: Oct. 18th, 2010




Some close up shots of the beading on her dress. The flower bead didn't come out well in the photo, but IRL, it's a gorgeous bright green sparkle.
