Waterlily - update #3 - finished!

Well, that was faster than I expected. Once I got close to a finish, I had to keep going... and since beading is my favorite part of any project, I couldn't stop. :)




She's stitched on Belfast linen from Crafty Kitten, in the color Buttercup. Pretty much everything is as charted, except I used a different but very similar color of kreinik braid since I didn't have the exact one and I don't care about exact matches. :p

I actually had all the required MH beads except the bicones because the MH repacked crystals are a total ripoff. Instead, I have a nice stash of various colors of bicones purchased from Fire Mountain Gems, and these are the exact color of the MH repack, minus the AB coating which I hate anyway. AB coatings always look really cheesy to me - you can't even see the color of the crystal! Why put that extra coating on there anyway???

Haha, rant aside, I'll be going back to the Beautiful Sea Quaker SAL until I'm caught up again, and then I might start another easy project. Still don't have the mental oomph to handle a Chatelaine right now, especially one that's stitched on black...
