Fantasy Unicorn

Now in Preview and out late next month in The World of Cross Stitching, issue 189, here is my fantasy Unicorn just in time spring. With sparkling Kreinik threads and Mill Hill beads like dewdrops he romps through a field of wildflowers on an early spring morning. Stitched on Polstitches  deliciously soft Fairy Dreams 28 count Jobelan he brings all the wonder and anticipation of the new season filled with rebirth and light.

    It is so lovely. This one goes to the top of the pile. I have never seen fairy dreams so well suited to a design as this is 🙂

Thanks so much for the “Advance Notice” – now I know what I have got to save for, in spite of my overflowing so-called ‘Spare Room’ (no-one could get in to sleep there!) you designs get more & more beautiful! Where do the ideas come from? May your Inspiration nver leave! Dorrie Hebbes. X

    Completely unrelated but I have finally finished a geisha I started forever ago. I made so many mistakes each time I did some of it. When I decided to finish it this month I had to cover them up. I think I did ok. I reckon you are the only person who will notice them all. Beautiful chart though, thank you.

      I know how you feel about mistakes! It is a great achievement though to finish a big design.

    When I saw this unicorn, I could not believe how beautiful it was. The fabric was the perfect choice. The face of the unicorn so genteel but full of strength. I am so impressed.
