My Christmas Doll

The last stitch was been taken and the beads added. My Christmas Pincushion Doll skirt is now stitched! Yeah!! I added the final bead on Tuesday just in time for The 2015 Smalls SAL and WIPocalypse check-in for July. The doll in the model is wearing a burgundy under skirt, but I plan on using the blue fabric in the background for my doll. Blue is my favorite color and the color of the ribbon in my dol'ls hair.
Now for the courage and skill to do a good job with the finishing.

It may be hard to see but there is a hint of blue in the Fir Waterlillies (Caron Collection) used.

Thanks for stopping by,

I have this pattern in my 'must do' pile. It looks lovely so I must move it higher up my stitching list

@Jo I trying to carve out some time and work up the nerve to get started on the finishing. I know I will need a couple of weekends to get it done nicely.
