Fairy Flora

Okay, so I'm putting Fairy Flora away for now. I feel like I've made some good progress on her...but of course, the bottom portion of her is the most stitch-intensive, so I still have a ways to go.
I started her before I began keeping track of my stitching hours, so I have only an estimate of how much time I've put into her. I *think* this is about 70 hours' worth:

I have never been crazy about the fabric that Mirabilia calls for in this chart, but when I started her (LONG time ago) I was still pretty new to stitching on anything other than Aida and didn't feel confident enough to go with a different choice. I really regret that now, because I've seen her done on pale green fabric and I think she looks best that way. Still, she's turning out nicely, don't you think? (Especially since you probably can't see all the mistakes in the small image, heh heh).
