Back to some good news now. Here is a preview of the Lavender Fairy coming in Issue 208 of Cross Stitch Collection. I love growing lavender beneath my roses. What a treat it is to be amidst the beautiful purple spikes with their feathery blue green leaves as they send out their gorgeous scent in the early morning. I tried to capture some of that beauty in this thoughtful fairy and her soothing, relaxed pose. She is stitched on Polstitches beautiful ‘snowstorm’ 28 count Jobelan. I have posted the supplies on the project floss page at right but I am waiting to hear from Collection as to which of Jo’s fabric they stitched the model on. Lots of pretty Mill Hill beads and Kreinik metallics, as always. I’ll be posting some alternate fabric choices too. Enjoy!
