So close I can taste the finish.....

I know I'm under 500 stitches..............

Still about 1000 beads to attach :(   Need to get some more, but that won't be until next week, the framer is also a shop owner so will get the remaining beads then.

Still a lot to do on the pots by her feet - there are about 3 more colors to put in on what I think is the Indian corn in her basket and then beads on the blue pot and filling in a few missed stitches on the big pot.

Still have the green in the grass to the left of the pots - just one color left, will be so happy to have the rest of the green done!!

Then there is some white, cream, ecru and some of the darker grays on the dream catcher, beading and then putting in the long stitches.

Last thing to be done is the ultra suede fringe on the cape and the bottom of the dress.  Have never work with it, so we'll see how it goes.  If I don't like it, I'll switch to a very velvet, but I think it will be fine.

When I write it all out it seems like there is STILL a lot to do, but I know I'm near the end - will see what I can get done tomorrow and Wednesday - then it will be put away for a week or so until I have time to work on it again.

Then on to the next project....
