Wizard Finished !!!

I finished my wizard !!! It looks really good with the beads and the bling attached.  This was my first time using Madeira metallic thread.  The only other metallics I have used have been DMC and those are notoriously terrible to use so I was nervous.  These ones were much better I still had to pay more attention whilst using them  but they were easier to use than the dmc even without Thread Heaven.  So without further ado ....

Cross Stitch Wizard

Design from Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine (unknown issue)
recommended DMC, Madeira threads and Mill Hill Beads
28 count evenweave fabric

I am now off to finish the wedding sampler.  My sister is getting married this Saturday (I can't believe how the time has flown), so I will be able to share the finished project with you on Sunday when she has seen it.  I have also bought a project for myself to do as a memento.  I intend to stitch it over the weekend (in any small opportunity I can !!!).  It is called Just Married by Lizzie Kate and I will be stitching it in regular DMC thread.

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!
