Ivy - Finished!!!

She's done, she's done, and so darn cute! :D I love the garland in her hair and those metallic teal beads are to die for. We're going to JoAnn's after work to pick out a fabric for her backing and she will be finished the same way as Fern.

I don't know if I've previously mentioned that I'm stitching about 6 pixies for our closet, so this is 2 down, 4 to go. :D

Ivy by Mirabilia

Stitched 2 over 2
Floss: DMC, Kreinik
Beads: Mill Hill
Started: November 10th, 2011

That project is so beautiful! I love her hair and crown, and it's so nice as a whole! Good luck with Jo-Ann's this weekend (the one here seems a little insane- I was out with my family and we went in yesterday, saw the line, and turned around and left XD), and I hope you can find a good fabric to back her!
