I really do think the designers might want to post a reassuring note when they cut things this close. Something on the order of, "Don't panic, you really will have enough beads, in fact you will even have a very tiny amount left over. Trust me!"
So, finally, after two years, I am happy to present Teresa Wentzler's Autumn Faerie in all her beaded magnificence. It has been a long journey but well worth the time. I'll be taking her to the framer's shop before the month is out: I think I'll want a doublemat, picking up the greens and golds and a deep, intricately carved frame. This piece is strong enough to carry an elaborate frame without being diminished by it.
