Petal Fairy - Flowers!

I didn't get as much done this weekend as I'd have liked, and as a result, haven't finished the flowers. It's getting close though... I think if I had 2 more hours last night, I'd be starting with beading tonight. ;) As it stands, about 3 more colors and then on to beading.



I second your comments about her face. She's one of the prettiest Mira faces for me, and I fall in love all over again every time I look at her. Now I know how hubby feels about me. Mwa-hahahahahahaha!!!

Also, I wanted to clarify about the Mermaid of Atlantis Challenge. The 55 hours does NOT run consecutively, hehehe. It's just counting stitching hours, no matter how many months it will take to stitch her. It'll be interesting as I've always only noted start and finish dates and not actual time spent. There's still 6 days to vote and I find it so cute and funny that many of you have voted according to what you think I want to do. ;) Thank you, enablers!!!!! *hugs*

Pretty pretty pretty!! I luv the flowers and her face is so delicate and lovely! Happy finish dance soon!!

Rachel said...

She's so beautiful Joyce!! I see a happy dance in your near future! :) I have never kept track of how many hours I stitch, or even days, lol. I note the day I start, and the day I finish. I put my stitching down so many times during the day it would be next to impossible to keep track of the time, lol!! Good luck keeping track!

No, that's not a real challenge, the 55 hours should be in one sitting (evil laughter).

I spent all of one Easter break (4 days) stitching a L&L design, Angelica. Bliss...

Half the world must be falling in love with Petal Fairy just because she has such a beautiful face :) I can't wait to see the beading and the flowers are amazing!

She is so lovely

Wow, you're so close now, can't wait to see the finished piece!

Wow, 55 hours stitching... now I'm contemplating whether it'd be possible to have a sponsored stitch... my other half did a 24 hour football-a-thon when he was a kid because it was a good excuse to play football for that long, so perhaps a 24 hour stitch-a-thon would be a good excuse :-)
And it'd get you nearly halfway through that mermaid!

Kim! Now... that's an idea, huh? For charity or something. 24 hour stitch-a-thon would kill me though.... no sleep and nothing. LOL!

Esther.... sorry, sorry.... I knew it was you, I don't know why I said Wendy. :( Ermm... I haven't showed hubby, but I'm sure he'll say "Yes!!! Exactly" and then roll his eyes HAHAHAHA.

Gorgeous Joyce. She is just the prettiest fairy. I look forward to seeing her beaded and sparkly. The colours used in this design are so nice.

mdgtjulie said...

No 24 hour stitch a thon. We'd all be frogging and cranky, lol. She is just gorgeous Joysze. Breathtaking. Her face is so beautiful! I just can't wait to see her finished!

ArabicaMix said...

I agree with you that her face was one of the most beautiful. You are always very well pick up tissue. It turns out very nicely!

Mireille said...

WOW, Beautiful and what are you working fast. I am looking forward to the beading work.
Hugs,
Mireille

Joysze said...

Novi... I know you love me.... ;) ROFL!!!! Food.... always about food.... me too. HAHAH.

Lissanne said...

Joyce, she is coming along so fast! I can't wait to see what she looks like beaded!! I have to say that the Heather Fabbie looks like it was made for her, maybe I will have to get this color instead! Can't wait to see her finished!

I do not keep track of how long I stitch, but on weekends I will sit for 12 hours or so and keep stitching with a little break here and there. Any longer and I would go blind since my eyes start blurring!

LOL regarding hubby! :) She's gorgeous.
