I was finally able to finish this project for my cousin.  Although I rather enjoyed beading the swirls around the wings, head, and dress, I felt like the beading on the dress was never going to end.  Because this took forever, I opted out of stitching the French knots all over the dress.  Honestly, I just wanted it done.  Also, I looked at the chart picture, and I made the executive decision that excluding the French knots would not take away from the overall effect.  I need to head out to the framer to get her framed.  I’m thinking a white frame (cousin’s place is blue/grey walls with white accents, i.e. baseboards, doors, cupboards, etc).  Not sure if I’ll have her matted as well.  I will have to look into my options and pricing.

Here are some closeups for you to enjoy.
