A fairy good day

I almost forgot to share my little fairy that I finished!  I stared this before I gave birth, even stitching some when I started laboring at home.  It helped to have something to focus on between the contractions.  I finished it during some spare free minutes after bringing the baby home.  

This is a Sublime Stitching pattern you can purchase here.  That's one sexy fairy if I do say so myself.

 I really wanted to play with color for this design.  I'm really pleased with the outcome.

I added  a few extras to the outfit and shoes to give it a bit more detail.

I love the fiery hair--what a vixen. 

I'm not sure what I'm going to start working on next.  I'm waiting on the next towel to arrive for the tea towel swap.  I'm also now THREE months behind on the Dessert of the Month cross stitches--so maybe I'll start one of those.  It's also getting close to Halloween so I'd love to do some spooky stitching.   I also want to start some small pieces for my own art. Ack--so many projects, so little time.  Now that I've gone back to work, I have even less time for creating but I'm going to fit it in where I can.  How big is your project list?

I love this fairy. :) The wings--oh my, they blow me away! Gorgeous.

You don't even want to know how long my project list is! ;) It's ridiculous! Right now, there are about a dozen things that I am either working on or wanting to start. Yikes.

Of course it's a fairy, because the stitched are almost unbelievable! The wings and hair are especially magical.
