Fairy March - Lili of the valley

 
 
 
Hello Peeps,

 
Can you believe it? March is already here!
Spring is definitely in the air & we should soon enjoy some nice weather

 
 New month means new fairy finish to share with you all.
This one is Easter themed and look out of place for now
as we won't be celebrating Easter until April... but still, she does look so cute!
 
 
Fairy March
 
 
 
 
Stitched on 32 count Murano fabric
Halloween Mist colour
 
 
 
 
Worked 2 over 2
using recommended DMC threads
 
 
 
 
I am so pleased at how well the fabric colours
match this sweet design
Who thought Halloween colours would be a good match for an Easter design?!
 
 
 
 
No finishing ideas yet for this one but
I have certainly had fun stitching her, which for me is the most important.

Finishing bug seems to have gone away for now &
I am in no mood to go & look for it.

 
Now looking forward to the April one,
it is one of my few favourite is the fairy series.

 
Toodles,
Mii

      I agree with you, although to start with, I wasn't too keen on this one. Now she finished, I love her :)

      I love the fabric! My pictures are not the best unfortunately, but in some places there are also some very light hint of green, it just looks super.

  13. Oh she's gorgeous on that fabric! I wasn't keen on her initially when I started stitching her but the backstitch really finishes her off. April is one of my favourites too!

  14. Beautiful fabric and stitching! 😊 It's Autumn on my side of the world but we have a week of temperatures in the 30's (degrees Celsius) so it's still feeling like summer here! ☀️

    1. Wow! 30 degrees Celsius in Autumn!!!!
      I can't imagine what your Summer must be like :)
      If we get 30 degrees Celsius in Summer here, people will be poorly & we will have hose ban & all sort :D

  19. Un bel oeuf de Pâques pour cette petite fée pleine de douceur... Qui en effet aurait cru qu'une toile couleur Halloween se marierait aussi bien avec un motif printanier. Ton choix est parfait.
