Miss New Year's Fairy was one of the Holiday fairy LE kits (there were 6, this makes my 5th!) available through Wichelt? I bought them as fast as they came out, but have not been so fast about finishing them off (I did the first three pretty quickly, though).
I think, honestly, that she's my favorite. The colors and the sparkle are just fantastic. I like her a lot more than I thought I would.
Under the ott-lite:
Regular lighting: I just LOVE those silver beads!
The top half of her was ridiculously easy to stitch, and I just adore the backstitching on the wings with the kreiniks.
When I was stitching the bottom half, I started with the upper part of her dress, but didn't get very far because of all of the holes I had to leave for the beads, so I decided to stitch the beads as I went along instead.
So many beads - but following a regular pattern, which made it easier to keep track of. And the different thread colors were, I thought, a little too similar (when I was stitching), but the final effect is really nice (things to learn: trust the artist-designer, she knows what she's doing)
The wings are fantastic - I love the inner line of sparkly kreiniks around them, and I really enjoyed working with that particular blue in the wings.
And those beads! ZOMG! I love delicas!
I changed the BS color for the skin. It called for Old Oak which was really yellow and had a major color shift that I didn't like. I can't remember the name, but I went with the one used in Halloween Fairy, because I thought that looked good.
I'm stupid in love with this watch face, I think it looks great withe the metallic, and the bead sash/chain works great
I'm also going to break with my "scheduled" rotation to participate in TWOctober (Teresa Wentzler focused month)... and I might carry that out through the end of the year. I think I could make some very good progress on Egyptian Sampler and Fantasy Sampler, and I'm kind of excited about those two pieces right now. If I finish them both, I would just throw another long neglected UFO into their slots on what I have scheduled. Plus, I'm super excited to get a new start in January... while I told myself I would wait to get to a more manageable WIP level before adding in new things, I think the New Year should be an exception.
Edited to add: I just realized (after updating the 2014 page), that it appears that 2014 is the year of Mirabilia for me. Between the three finishes (so far) and the start/progress of Deco Spirits, that's definitely the major designer for me!
