Finished 10 minutes ago!!!

Hello fellow stitchers...I don't have to go on and on about the joys of completing a project; especially one that has taken a really long time. I have just finished the Halloween Fairy. She's been 99% completed for a while except for the beading in the moonbeams and around the hem of her dress. I just couldn't bring myself to finish her, but I just buckled down and voici! I thought about stitching in some wings but thought it might be a bit too much what with all the beads around her head and shoulders. Frankly, I think that the design has too many beads...a perfect example where less would have been more. Still, a lovely design. This was published in September 2008 issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework Magazine and designed by Nora Corbett.

I am now debating whether I should invest even more money in having it professionally framed or try framing it myself?

I'd treat myself to an icecream as a reward for my discipline but I am dieting. I will have a bit of sherry, instead.
