WIP:: Fairy

I am going to tell you something about myself that you may not know.  I love fairies!  They are whimsical, playful, fun and so much more.  One of my favourite stories is Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.  I have read it many times.  

When I envisioned my Terrain wall quilt, I saw Daisies.  My favourite flower.  That is what I carried down the aisle at my wedding.  It took me a while to nail down the way I wanted them to look and when I did I felt the quilt needed something more.  Enter fairy.

I am happy with how she is coming along.  I see one glaring error on her, but am hoping it disappears as I work on stitching her down with hand embroidery.
Please excuse the picture, I took it at my desk during my lunch hour at work.  I started to sew her hair, I think it is almost impossible to see in the picture, but it is there, really.

UPDATE: Completed Quilt here.
