Petal Fairy - Ta-dah!!!

Here she is!!! My beautiful girl... all beaded and gorgeous... with 2 days to spare. ;) I put in the last color last night and beading didn't take too long at all. I tried to capture the colors of the rainbow beads as much as I could, but they are so much more colorful in person. The iridescent of pearl beads at the tails of her skirt are so scrumptious, a milky cream... like butter! :D

As previously mentioned, I recharted her arms and neck to make them smoother, and I think they suit her slender body much better. :) I love how her face is turned up towards the lightest part of the fabbie, like she's basking in the sunlight, and I love how the light purple kreinik appears iridescent on this fabric. The former was a happy coincidence, the latter, planning coming into fruition. :)

I placed the heavier purple colors on the fabric at the bottom left, as light moves upwards, as also to balance and the purples in her wings. It worked out well, think. Enough talking... I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. :)

Gorgeous finish Joyce!! I love the bead details. They make her dress and wings pop and sparkle! Your stitching is really perfect too! Do you use a laying tool? I just learned about those and am thinking about getting one. Seriously pretty design and I love how you placed her on the fabric! Congrats!!!

She's completely, utterly GORGEOUS! Love your pictures showing off the bling. My, is she sparkly. Never realize that before. She's on my to-stitch list as well. Now you're tempting me... Sigh!
That's so cool! Congratulations on finishing her on time! The details are really, really nice, too- sometimes the faces in cross stitches look a little weird (not by any fault of the stitcher, it's the pattern), but this one is perfect! Her dress is very nifty, too.

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous!! I had her in my stash at one point, all kitted up and everything but sold it all on eBay because I knew I'd never get to her. Congrats on such a beautiful piece.

And the question on everyone's lips... have you decided to start Mermaid of Atlantis next?
This one really is truly superb joysze!It has been a real treat to share her with you as you stitched. I've said it before but you are a fabbie choosing genius :-)

She's very pretty. I love your changes. I think her charting of arms and shoulders really needs some work in some of the patterns!
