Happy Dance for Nimue's Baby Swing

Without flash to show the true colours:
 With flash to show the details, metallics, beads and bells:
I have posted at great length about this one on my blog, so hop over there to find out more.  It's stitched on some 32 count Murano hand dyed specially for me by The Crafty Kitten.  The fabric is currently June's Ltd Edition.  It's a nice green with a hint of paler yellow, I wanted dappled sunlight through trees but not to bright and garish.  I tend to the subtle in hand dyeds so far.  The design is called "The Baby Swing" by Nimue although I bought the chart from Violarium as I didn't know about the Nimue site until after I'd bought the chart!  I can recommend Violarium, I ordered two Nimue charts from them, they were delivered quickly from Europe and came with half a dozen free small charts from companies I'd not seen before.

Thanks Lesley! It was so funny when I finished it, I said to hubby - I have to post pics for my followers! It's here, on my blog, 2 different FB pages and 2 different forums! Do you think there's anyone in the CS world who hasn't seen it yet?
Nimue is a great designer who deserves the publicity (that's my excuse anyway!)

Adorable! Congrats! I've seen quite a few of their charts that I like but I haven't purchased any yet. I'll have to check that site out.
