Hip hip Hurray!

I had just finished stitching SSM today, I was lucky that it was also immunization day, so my little family went to Walgreens to get some fresh batteries for our camera. I was then able to take a picture of her as soon as she left the scroll. She is being stitched on 28 count evenweave opalescent SOLO from Silkweaver. I just love love love her! She is one of my favorites for this year. I feel very happy that I have finally finished her. I thought those beads would never end!!

Here she is in all her glory...



I could have stitched the begining of her tail with metallics, but I thought the beads gave her a sort of 'retro' look, like a belt. And we all know how it is the fashion statement these days. hehe



I need to fix my rechart, and transfer my scribbles onto it before I could share it to anyone who wants it, I made a couple of color changes on her so that her skin doesn't looked like it was mixed up with her tail.



Thanks for lookin' =)

Wow, what an incredible finish. She is just gorgeous. Congratulations. I've just started a blog (still trying to figure things out) and have been looking around at other blogs. I'm glad I came across yours. I love the threads you dyed too.
