Rose Fairy Preview


Rose Fairy

My Rose Fairy is now in preview in the current issue (195) of Cross Stitch Collection. I chose to use the delicate flowers of the wild rose for this design. Varieties of these softly blushing blossoms grow freely by the sea as well as in the hills to the north here in the Eastern US. As always, she has lots of Mill Hill beads and sparkling Kreinik metallics to add a magical touch. She is stitched on Polstitches 28HPI ‘Fairy Dreams’ Jobelan, which I think suits her just perfectly! Look for the chart next month in issue 196. I’ll be posting the supply list tomorrow.

    I love that you used the wild roses! I think it the perfect match for a wild and beautiful fairy. πŸ™‚
    I’m having a hard time deciding which is my favorite. Can’t wait to see the other two designs!

I’ve noticed that the flower fairies are coming out in consecutive issues…… there a chance that means you’ll be having another series this year in CSC as well? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ (wishful thinking for us subscribers) LOL

    Will it be the US Cross Stitcher, Joan? I’ve been considering getting a subscription, and I definitely will if you’re gonna have patterns in there this year. πŸ˜€

      Sadly, the US Cross Stitcher is no longer around. It is now part of the magazine Crafts & Things. I haven’t done anything for them lately, so this is not it.

        Whatever it be, I do hope it will available in Europe too πŸ™‚
        I’m eagerly waiting for more
        Thank you for all you do

        Aw, didn’t know that about Cross Stitcher!
        Still, I completely blame you for me caving in and getting a subscription to CSC. Just wish it didn’t take so long to get here internationally! Good thing I have something to do while I’m waiting. πŸ˜€

    This Rose fairy is a must to stitch, I can’t wait to be stitching this one. I just noticed that the materials list for the fabric colour on the floss and embellishments page is different to the one listed above on this page.
    Fairy dreams or fairy footprints?

    Which ever it is, it’s going to be my favourite fairy.

    Thank you Joan.

    She is gorgeous and I hope to be able to get this design–currently stitching up Iris Fairy and I think Rose Fairy is going to go very nicely with Iris Fairy
