First Finish for 2017

on January 12, 2017

finished-j

I finished this sweet little fairy last night.  I just love how she turned out.  And she was a pretty quick stitch, too.  Taking me only 11 days to complete.  She is Nora Corbett’s Fairy letter J and I used the conversion from The Rocking Horse.  Stitched on 16ct Aida Sage from Hand Dyed Fabrics By Stephanie.

This morning, I found this on my porch.

I had posted on my facebook page earlier in the week that I wanted seashells instead of snowflakes.  And some sweet person actually brought me seashells and just made my day.  So thank you to the sweet fairy who left me seashells. I just love them ❤ My heart is so filled with joy from such kindness.

    Wish I could take credit, but it would take some pretty long arms! Congrats on the finish, she’s lovely!

    Charming fairy. You’re bead work is beautiful.
    you have a sweet friend to bring the seashells. 🙂

  3. Thank you, E.C. I am very happy with how she turned out. Mistakes and all. And the beads just make the project sparkle so pretty. I do have a sweet anonymous friend.

  4. Sandra says:

    She looks great. I want to start mine soon, but I have so many WIPs that I need to finish first.

    • Thank you, Sandra. I know what you mean about wanting to start something new. I need to work on WIP’s, too, but there is a reason I needed to start this one and get it done before summer. So I started the O last night and am hoping she is as quick a stitch as the J. Good luck with your WIP’s.

  5. You always seem to choose the perfect fabric to stitch on. It’s really lovely and you made it so quickly.

  6. She is beautiful and you are speedy! It will be so much fun to watch the other two come to life under your needle.

    Love how she turned out, Ginny! You’re right, I like the pink in the dress better than the green that it was earlier.
    And it’s so sweet of this secret Santa to leave you a gift! ☺

    Oh, I love how it turned out. I think I like all the beading the best, espesually​ the red beading all around the little fairy. I can’t wait to see what the other two letters look like.

  9. Marilyn says:

    Joy is turning out so pretty.
    What a nice gesture to give you Seashells.

  10. Your fairy is absolutely beautiful. Well done. And so many little beads. I adore your work.
    I could not help but smile when I saw your beach sand and seashells. I have a collection of sand and shells in my bathroom window. Each time we visit the coast for a holiday, I bring back a bottle of sand from the beach and shells I could manage to find. They get bottled and tagged and live in the window to remind me each day of the sun and surf and sea and good times.
    I am sure your shells and sand will bring you the same smiles.
    Have a great week. 🙂

    • Thank you, Joey. I do love all the little beads and I must say, fairy was so much easier to bead than mermaid. I enjoyed stitching this little fairy and now I am on the the “O”. It is also a pleasant stitch. I do love the seashells left by my sweet anonymous friend. I look at them and long for summer. They bring a smile to my face every time I see them. Your sand and shell collection sounds wonderful. Such a sweet idea.

  11. She is lovely and you are rapid! It will be such a great amount of enjoyable to watch the other two spring up under your needle…

  12. The fairy is so beautiful! It was really nice for someone to leave you seashells. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment. The fairy is really sweet and I am almost finished with the “O”. The seashells were a very pleasant surprise and really warmed my heart. I smile everytime I see them 🙂

    What a sweet surprise from someone with those shells. J turned out so nice. The beading is really pretty on it!

    • Thank you, Fawn. I am loving stitching these little fairies. They go so quickly! I have 2 finishes in January already! Really makes me feel like I am accomplishing something. The shell jar is so sweet and I smile every time I walk by it. I start dreaming of the beach and mermaids and looking for shells and sea glass on the beach. Ahhhh. Thank you for stopping by ❤
