Happy Happy Joy Joy

I got a finish! Woohoo!
It has to be said, I'm quite liking it and I'm quite proud of it, there are so many things in this that I've just never done before. All the different speciality stitches, beading, stitching over two, hand dyed threads and fabric, I'm generally just very proud!
I have altered it slightly, as I was working on the wrong count fabric for the beads I bought, I couldn't get the bugle beads to look right, so i've put the central bead motif then so of stitched a swirly pattern going out.
I finished it sooner than I expected, I thought I was probably going to have another week on this before I finished, but now that I'm finished, I'm looking to my next project, this weekend I will be winding bobbins and putting fabric onto the frame so that I can start Chakra Fae! woohoo!
