Wow, after 6 years she is finally finished…

I started her as my let me get back into cross stitch project in 2007… Here we are 6 years later and after many other finished projects… Complete!!!


I ran out of the beads in her skirt so substituted delica seed beads, and the beads in her blanket are ones I had on hand – perhaps a little bright but I think they work. The only beads that are the correct beads are the light blue ones, which I somehow was 10 beads short from the first packet. I had a second one on hand though πŸ™‚




She has had a bath – mild detergent and lots of rinsing and has been ironed… The water from the detergent was grey!!!! I knew she was a bit grubby (6 years, 2 states and 5 houses later) but I didn’t quite expect that!!!!
