Faces of Faery 88: Sixth Post - Complete

Yes, you read the title correctly.  Faces of Faery is done!  Not only is this my first finish of 2015, but it is my first ever HAED finish!  And I even finished it before the end of the sale.  Okay, enough words, it's all about the pictures.

This first picture is finishing up three colors that were the bulk of the remainder of the purple, and the last two colors in the lips.

Then I continued and did a bit more, this is where it was Sunday night:

At this point I only had 16 colors left.  So I pulled them all to make sure I had them, I was missing three, and I put them in a pile.  The way I decided what color to do next was whatever I picked up.  And this is where I got to after work Monday night:

I had today off so, being only 10 colors and 800 stitches from finished, I worked on her, only pausing long enough to eat... kinda.  And here she is done!

I made her bigger so she's easier to see.  And because I just wanted to make her bigger.

So I've been trying to be a good stitcher and not start too many projects, so I'm trying to keep myself limited to one pattern per artist of the HAEDs.  And I was kind of bad, I already started on the one that's to replace this, the next Jasmine Becket-Griffith.  Okay, I started it months ago.
