Butterfly Keeper

Hi Everyone! I've finally made a start on my very first HAED. I'm stitching QS Butterfly Keeper. I picked her because I really liked her blue hair. This is what I have so far. I'm stitching 2 over 1 on 22 ct. hardanger fabric. It's kind of bulky, but there's no show through and I really didn't want any fabric showing through all that dark hair.
