Fairy February - Lili of the Valley

Hello Peeps,
We are now in February and it is fairy time!
Fairy February
Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew it all
Cabbage colour
2 over 1,
using DMC recommended colours



This cutie was finished off as an envelope
for a small exchange with Albéna
with a theme of St Valentine


Front


Using fabric, ribbon & button from my stash

The finished envelope was not perfect
but I was still pleased with the overall look.



and back


Included were a cross stitch chart, buttons & silk thread.


oOoOo


Here is the envelope I have received from Albéna



Cute little cats in love! from French designer Isabelle Vautier.


Toodles,
Mii

      In all honesty it wasn't perfect - my sewing machine skills are not the best! - But I am hoping my next one in October will be better :)
