Autumn Fairy, part 5

Seeing Spring Fairy recently finished made me want to work on Autumn Fairy again. Over the past couple of evenings I worked on and finished part 5. Here are closeups of part 5 (though a little fuzzy, sorry!).

Once I finished part 5, I decided to go ahead and correct the crystals. I had previously put the heart in the top, and it just looked out of place there to me. Once I stitched part 4, I realized that it would look much better there.

Of course, then I had to decide what to put in the top part where I took the heart off. I found this crystal teardrop (and Spring Fairy has a crystal teardrop in the same location, so it seems like a no-brainer). Martina may have updated the instructions since she released the design, but I can't find anything in my chart about this, so I'm just going with what I think looks good. I'm not sure what color this is, but it's kind of a dark topaz.

Here is the entire design so far.

Being so close to the finish line on this one, I'm going to continue working on it - all I have left is the tree, which will probably take me about a week or so to stitch. Of course, my Fall Frolic block of the month just came in the mail. And this weekend I get to pick up my other block of the month, so I'll be working on those too. Happy things to work on, and of course, there's always my hexies! I almost have the 5th purple block finished!
