This project officially goes down as my third 2013 finish!  I am on a roll.

As much as I thought Bluebell was an easy stitch, this was much easier and much faster.  Minimal  confetti stitching always helps speed along the stitching process.

I love this pattern, I love the fabric I chose, and I love the way the project looks complete with beads.  She is too cute.  I stitched on Hand-Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie, Fern, 32-ct Jobelan, 2 over 2.  Some of the photos were

Here are some close-ups of my work:

I submitted her for framing on Saturday.  It’s the little things that make me happy.  I cannot wait to get her back.  I’m expecting her in two weeks, but the framer said I may get it this weekend, which would be awesome.

I also submitted Bluebell for framing.  I opted for the same frame because I’m going to be stitching quite a few of the spring garden pixies.  I want to display them on the same wall, so I don’t want the frames competing with each other.

Oh, I can’t forget, I submitted my daughter’s “I Gave You my Heart” project as well.
