WIP Wednesday is a finish!

Yay! Yes, if you’re familiar with this pattern you’ll see that I chose not to stitch some portions of the design (like the background) & I’ve converted all the Crescent Colours to DMC, and then changed out the Mill Hill beads. But that is my usual M.O.!

I also only half – stitched the wings, and only in the bottom direction. That’s to give it texture. I was going to stitch the top arm in Kreinik #4 032 for a shiny look but it didn’t look quite right.

      • ah I have “stargazer” in my stash, which I see you also have. That’s the one I’ll do first, but I’ve currently got a Joan Elliott lady in progress and she hasn’t seen a needle in months.
