Talk about jewel tones on this baby! There must've been at least twelve colors in there... from the hot pink, to the electric blue, to the christmas green! YUM!!!! Backstitching was a b**** to do though. Thank goodness for those spots of bright pinks as they made it much easier to count.
|3 down, and only 9 to go. Oh boy!|
|The fabric color is pretty spot on in this picture.|
I also did the finishing on Poppy. My initial thought was to get a red or purple fabric for her backing, but they all came out too loud. So, we opted for a light blue gray to pick up on her wings. The gray swirls were a nice touch and we decided on a lavender gray ribbon to pull it everything together.
Five pretty pixies in a row now. I'm thinking at least two more and then we should be done. Might be able to squeeze in another three, I'm not sure as yet.
Finally, just for fun, a couple of pictures of my latest baby in its natural habitat. The last picture is of my currently flowering brazilian orchid.
