Bluebell by Nora Corbett, started 7/26/09 and finished 1/18/10. She's stitched on a 32 count lugana Silkweaver solo and I did make some modifications. The skin is stitched with DMC 754 as charted for the darker tone and a blend of 754/948 for the lighter tone. I also used seed beads instead of the larger crystal beads for the dew drops on her bluebells and the line of crystal beads along the bottom. I did bead as charted at first but wasn't happy with the result, the large beads were just too big for me.
I did get a pic of the larger beads before I frogged them...
They probably would have been fine on a lower count fabric but I didn't like them on this one which is disappointing because I did like the effect on some of the other finishes I've seen but I've still sort of got it with the line of blue/green beads on the skirt of her dress.
I'm still in the mood to stitch pretty ladies so I did pull out Titania last night and will probably work on her for awhile now.
