My last finish for 2021 is a beauty! I started stitching on her back in August of 2019. I had put her down to stitch on something else, most likely. I didn’t have much stitched on her when I put her down, so here is what she looked like when I picked her up in October.
I was enjoying stitching on her.
Let the Beading begin.
I swear it took me 2 weeks to bead this beauty. Some sections I beaded, ripped out, re-beaded, ripped out, changed beads, ripped out, left beads off, ripped out. I didn’t use a lot of the large pony beads. Instead I went to a smaller pony type bead and in some instances, left beads off all together. The pattern calls for 28ct fabric, so working on 16 ct aida gives me a smaller space to work with putting the beads on. So leaving off beads, was not a problem. Changing to smaller beads worked well in some places. The long bugle beads needed extra space in order for them to lay flat, so I kind changed those areas in order to accommodate the bugle beads.
Here she is finished. She has so many beads! I think she is the most heavily beaded piece I have done. She is Pearl of the Orient Seas by Bella Filipina Designs. She is stitched on 16ct Aida, a One of a Kind fabric from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics.
What was your final finish for 2021?

Thank you, bernieg2011. I am quite pleased with her.
She is just breathtaking.
I finished off a few ornaments for next year.
Thank you, Marilyn. I am happy to have her finished.
I really need to make a list of ornaments I want to make this year. Sounds like you are way ahead of the game.
Wow! She’s gorgeous. The beading totally enhances the entire project, doesn’t it?
Thank you, Anita. The beads really do add that final touch, even though there were so many of them.

She is stunning! I love all her beads especially that gorgeous headress. My final finish was my Rainbow Bubbles design. I worked on it every evening to get it done before the end of the year.
I’m currently updating my Happy Dance blog with all my recent finishes.
Thank you, Joanne P. She really did turn out better than I thought. The headdress is pretty special even with leaving off many of the beads and downsizing some of the larger beads.
Love your Rainbow Bubbles design. So pretty and cheerful.
