Fairy Progress

I always think that I want to do an embroidery project.  After doing some simple embroidery on my fairy I started to change my mind.  It is such a slow process for me, however, right in the middle of working on it I decided to embroider a water lily on a purse I am making (I will have to share at a later time).  Either way, I think I am done the fairy, I may look again once I have more of the whole project together.

I was torn about stitching her face.  I really wanted to, but traditionally I have not done well at sketching faces.  After drawing a couple test faces on paper (and being laughed at over one of them) I decided to just go for it.  I think it gave her the personality that I was hoping for.

It is exciting to see this project come together, I started without knowing all of the details.  I have it all figured out now and I am enjoying the process.
