Comments: This is a different project than what I normally stitch. I wanted to stitch this one for a very good friend of mine as she loved it very much. I have just given it to her for her birthday and she is having it framed. Can't wait to see how it will look and she promised me a good photo which I will add to this very post as soon as she emails me the photo(s).
The only part of this project that I had been wondering about was the "hair", never having stitched any before, but it turned out easier than I thought it would be. It does need a bit of practice though and I am sure that the next time around, it will go smoother. In everything that we do, there is always that learning process that nobody can escape. We get better at it, the more we do and with Gay Ann, she has lots of designs that involves "hair", so should get plenty of practice.
Update March 5/2010: Just received some photos from my friend showing how she had Twilight Angel framed, so have added them at the end of this post. I think that the framing is just beautiful. Love it.
