Lavendar and Lace Celtic Noel Lady

I have spent the last week trying to finish this gorgeous design.  I started it February 2012 and took a long break with it, I picked it up in March of this year but I threw the beads across the floor and was struggling with stitching on black aida, but this time I knew I was so close to finishing her I thought I would do my best to get her done.

So after a total of 90 hours stitching, the last 25 were the beads she is complete and waiting to be frame.  Sadly the photograph doesn't do her justice at all because you can't see how stunning she is with all those beads, I believe 1200 beads are stitched into her.
