A Cherub for Colleen

About half an hour ago I finished "Cherub with Tree" for my SIL Colleen's birthday. Her birthday isn't until June but since we will probably be traveling to see them earlier in the year I wanted to have it finished very early. Just after the holidays I will have it mounted and framed so that it is ready to travel when we are.

The pattern is a freebie from Mirabilia. The finished piece is 6 x 6 inches. It was a joy to stitch this sweet angel but a lot more work than the size would lead you to believe.

stitched 1/2 on 32 ct waterlily lugana
with the required DMC floss, Kreinik Metallic Threads & Mill Hill Beads
started 11/03/2010 - completed 12/15/ 2010

Oh, it certainly looks like it was a lot of effort (is there a Mirabilia that isn't?) But it's just gorgeous and the beading is so sparkly and pretty. I'm sure your SIL will love it!

Oh Mirabilia patterns are not for the faint hearted, but the hard work is rewarding: this is glorious! And what an heirloom to treasure from now...
Love and hugs.
