I picked up Lily Pond Dreams from the frame shop this morning, and it looks fantastic. I love it, and I hope ionia_dreaming will love it, too. I can't wait for extra_joker and I to see her so we can give it to her. The two of us worked very hard on this.

Lily Pond Dreams
design by Black Swan Designs

Changed fabric color to a hand-dyed grey/slate evenweave, which I think looks really pretty with this design. Made minor alterations to the skin color and shape of the face.
Changed ball shaped flowers on either side to irises and added greenery. I am particularly pleased with the way this turned out, even though it was a pain in the butt. Next time I decide to re-chart something, I am going to try not to double the amount of stitching needed.
