August Fairy is finished and off to the Framer!

Hello.  I finally finished August Fairy this morning.  Early this morning.  I put the last bead on at 1:15 am, this morning.  This, after stitching for about 15 hours on Sunday.  Here she is:

She is stitched on 16 ct Aida, Milk Chocolate.  I think she turned out beautiful and I hope that my Mom likes her.  I called the Rocking Horse on Sat. and they said that if I brought my piece in on Monday, they could frame it in time for Christmas.  So that is why I stitched until my eyes crossed all day on Sunday.  Here is a close up of her sweet face:

She is a beauty.  Thank you Nora Corbett for such a beautiful design.  So off to the Rocking Horse I went to put her in for framing.  Here is the frame I chose for her:

Frame I chose for August FairyI liked the swirly pattern that matches her beaded wisps.  And there is a hint of red here and there that really brings out the beads on and around her head.  I can’t wait to get her back later this week.  Here is another look at the gorgeous frame:

I will be sure to post her once I get her back from the framer.

Did you happen to notice that it is snowing on my fairy?  Scroll up and watch a second….see it?  Isn’t that cool?  I can’t take credit for that.  WordPress allowed me to add that to my blog  for a while.  So for now it will snow on August Fairy. Thank you for stopping by my place to see what I have been up to.

    1. Thanks, Johanna. I am so excited to get it finished in time for framing. The Rocking Horse shop really came through for me and I can’t wait to get the call that it’s done and ready for pick up. The snow is cool, isn’t it?

    1. Thanks, Karen. Yeah, the Rocking Horse was very accomodating. So much so that I just returned home from an evening of shopping and there was a message on my machine that my framing is done!!! Wow!!! I took it in yesterday and it is ready today. That is service! Can’t wait to pick it up.
