Flamingo, designed by the folks at Mill Hill, was a very interesting pattern to cross stitch. The basic stitching and beading, which I did on pink frost perforated paper, was standard fare, but adding the long, long legs was my first experience stringing together such a variety of beads in such a way. I love the finished look! I used three shades of coral floss, as well as pink, black and white floss to stitch the upper half of the flamingo, then added desert peach and misty beads to add sparkle and shine. After I trimmed away the excess paper, I added the legs and feet using opal persimmon beads, red rainbow bugle beads, large fuschia beads, and, for the feet, sheer cinnamon and misty seed beads. Flamingo measures 2.5" x 4" (6.35cm x 10.16cm) and will look stunning however you choose to use or display the piece.

I can finish this piece for you in one of three ways. I can add a jump ring and make it a Christmas tree ornament, add a pin back and turn it into a piece of jewelry, or add a magnet. (The jump ring, pin back, and magnet shown in the bottom picture may vary slightly in color or shape from what you receive.) If you choose the pin or magnet option, shipping may take a day or so longer as I will treat the back of the item with needlework finisher/stiffener before gluing on the magnet or pin back. This will take a little while to dry and I don't want to package and ship your item until I'm sure it's completely dry.

IMPORTANT: When you purchase this item, be sure to indicate your choice of finishing by using the Finish drop-down menu to the right of the pictures!
