The Gorgeous Lady Bird !! :))

Not yet the finished finish to share , but still there is no stopping from sharing the gorgeousness :))

Cross stitch Lady Bird fairy by Joan Elliot

'Lady Bird fairy' by Joan Elliot stitched on 14 count aida fabric from the magazine , Cross Stitch Collection, Feb 2012 and completed in Dec, 2016. Those are the only details I can give . I don't keep the exact dates/hours statistics for any project and I am happy I have one less task to do there :D

I have framed it but still could not find the best place to hang it and take images without reflection . Even these images were taken in a hurry before framing so they are only few . I did not stitch the swirls of beads showing the track of lady bugs as I felt it was cluttering and I was satisfied stitching until this


I got tinier seed beads online and those are smaller than Mill Hill beads, just see the spots on the lady bugs . Definitely, the best replacement I got for the french knots . Now I am not afraid of the designs with french knots :)


So much is still in the pipeline but looks like time is just slipping away . I have completed three crochet doilies but none blocked so far . And much more to share iff I can squeeze 48 hours in a day :D

Happy crafting!
Preeti

  6. Congratulations on your finish. Lady Bird is gorgeous. The beading is stunning and such a good substitution for those dreaded French Knots! I hope you can get some decent photos of her framed to show us.

  7. Absolutely beautiful finish Preeti, I love her! Your idea of changing the French knots for beads is a great one.
    If you manage to find 48 hours in a day can you let me know? I'd love to have more stitching time!

  23. Wonderful! And the beads are a a great idea. I wonder if I will have the patience to do such a detailed project. Hats off to you. Maybe I should get out my Aida stash and give it a go someday.

  25. Oh my, Preeti, such an absolutely gorgeous finish. She is so beautiful. Lately I have fallen in love with Joan Elliott's fairies. Now to choose which one to order. Not very easy to choose from her wonderful fairy designs.
