Petal Fairy has some Wings!



Well, I spent most of my stitching time this week working on PF's wings. I finally got them done last night. Nicki - thanks so much for the tip regarding the Kreinik, because I totally ran out of it! ;-) I luckily bought a second spool after you mentioned it... I know that I go through a lot of Kreinik, as I always use short strands when I'm stitching with it (as I'm pretty hard on the poor Kreinik!), so I knew it'd probably happen. It would have been very frustrating if I'd run out when I was nearly done. I guess I'll be doing the flower next (maybe next week); then I'll have to do all the beading. So I may have a happy dance fairly soon. :-)

On Monday I'll be starting Quaker Meetinghouse... a SAL with Karen. I'm really looking forward to that - I've been dying to do QM, and Karen's SAL's are fun. :-)

She looks really great - we're almost in exactly the same place now! I did a little more stem yesterday so hope to get to the flower this weekend.

I think I'm going to run out of the darker beads too - I seem to have a lot more to add but not many left in the packet! Will let you know :)
