Miss New Years Fairy finished

I put the last bead on this afternoon while watching Doctor Who 
The chart and threads along with the beads were gifted to me last year :)  She whispered in my ear for a few months until I finally got round to starting her on June 1st.  I had hoped to have her finished quite quickly but it wasn't to be with having to go back to Kent last week.
She's not the type of project I would normally go for but I have to say I've really enjoyed stitching her.

I used Dr Smiths Tonic from Sparklies which as may of worked out by now is one of my favourties :)  I also had to sub a different Crescent Colour for her dress and went with Lunar Eclipse after much trail and error.


A couple of rare (for me) arty shots to show her bling off better with the added bonus of a much better idea of the true fabric colour



I was surprised to discover that Mill Hill Magnifcas are in fact Delicas which I have a *cough cough* few of, I know that probably isn't news to a lot of you but I rarely stitch designs that call for beads so had no idea!    If anyone knows of a Mill Hill number to Delica Number conversion please point me in the right direction for future ref, thanks

Love seeing all the projects you work on.

She is gorgeous, she is actually my favourite out of all these celebration fairies. I wish Nora did the charts on their own and not just the kits.
Always nice to find a new favourite fabric too.

She is adorable, and you learned something along the way too. A truly great finish.
I'll have to look out for a chart.
