I was able to finish Nora Corbett's Moss Collector last Friday, and I am so glad that I pulled her out again as she is just so pretty and sparkly:
The wings were mostly stitched with Petite Silk Lame Braid, so they have a nice shimmer, and the moss also has some of that braid, as well as a lot of beads:
The beads used for the skirt are a clear mint, and I was concerned that they were a bit too light so I ended up using a couple of the green flosses to attach them, using colors that were better suited to the two tones in the skirt (olive and kelly). I have a few pieces at the framer that should be done soon, so I think I'll take this one with me when I pick them up and get her framed right away.
Since I enjoyed rescuing and finishing this one so much, I decided to go back to the bin and pull another refugee out, Miss Solar Ellipse:
After a couple of days work she now looks like this:
The back stitching in the wings makes a big difference in this one:
My goal is to finish this one later this week, and then I really need to get to work on a model, as I don't like to get too far behind on deadlines.
Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
