I used Thread Gatherer's Silk'n Colors "Piccadilly Circus" to stitch the border, as I thought it drew all of the colors together a bit better, and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out:
NOW, I have to get back to the model I'm supposed to be working on!
I also received a picture of my last Holiday fairy from Jill Rensel, which is "Miss Independence" (aka Halloween Fairy color conversion):
I'm kind of glad she was last one to be done, as I think she might be my favorite. The first four pieces are on their way back to me, with an expected arrival of Wednesday; that will be one awesome package to open!
BTW, if you are interested in having the conversion, I have it posted on the Mirabilia Stitchers Yuku board: Miss Independence.
