Now in preview in the latest issue of Cross Stitch Collection…The Chrysanthemum Fairy.  This is the fifth in the series of six Flower Fairies. She’s stitched on Polstitches beautiful summer breeze 28 count Jobelan and is done in a palette of golds and earthy violets with  gorgeous Kreinik threads and Mill Hill beads throughout the design. Look for her in issue 197.

Also coming next month in issue 152 of Cross Stitch Crazy… another fairy, fresh as a breath of Spring. This lithe young sprite perches prettily on a colorful mushroom surrounded by  pretty pink foxgloves and attended by colorful butterflies. Lots of pretty beads and sparkling metallics make her shimmer with a special magical touch.
