Yay! First finish of 2014 is here. Miss Autumn Glow is done. She is stitched up on Mystical Garden Opal by Crafty Kitten. She really stitched up lovely. I decided to do her wings over 1 thread - but I still got great coverage - just a little more opaque. I also used a glisten gloss with the darkest two yellow colours in her wings - very subtle but added a bit more shine. Her beads are lovely - although there were about 3 colours of brown/orange that really could have just been one colour because they were so similar.
|Added a little face. Love the mill hill treasures but I find the leave a tad big - if I hadn't of bought the bead pack I would have skipped them....|
|Wings stitched 1 thread over 2 but they still covered really well!|

Also I have an update on Persephone. I tend to work on this when I have larger chunks of time - like Hockey games.... She is coming along beautifully, in my opinion! She has a face - courtesy of the Superbowl. I am not really looking forward to all the confetti in her hair but it will be beautiful when I get there!
Getting away with friends is so much fun and such a privilege. Thanks to my ladies for lot of laughs...LOTS of laughs. I look forward to getting together with them again soon so we can finish up our projects!
