Fairy Magic - Joan Elliott


Hello,
Apologies for being quiet these past few days...
I have been enjoying a well deserved holiday

I am back with a bright and colourful
summerlicious finish!

Here is Fairy Magic from Joan Elliott
- Free chart available with the latest issue of TWOCS -

Worked on 28 ct pink Zweigart evenweave Brittney fabric
Stitched 2 over 2 using all DMC colours provided on the key


My model was finished as a small cushion
using fabric & lace from my stash


And voila, a sweet and quick to stitch little fairy
Have you stitched yours???

Off to catch up with a week worth of your posts
and also more little crosses planned to finish my Tutti Frutti project

Happy Stitching
Mii
