Just to prove I did actually work on her

My geisha.

I just realized tonight, she's a big girl. This is probably one of the largest pieces of stitching I have ever done.

I fought with the #4 braid today. That was pretty much all I could get done. It's not fun to yank that stuff through the holes in 18 count fabric, particularly when they already have floss in them. I found a few mistakes. I'm not fixing them. This is about finishing what I started, not being perfect.

She's stunning! I can't imagine the hours you've devoted to this. Really amazing.

She's beautiful. Who said stitching had to be perfect? Just as long as you're happy :o)

Halloween Fairy looks gorgeous in that frame! I have that same geisha in my UFO pile *sigh*

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
