Now out in the current issue # 217, the last of my Garden Fairy Series for Cross Stitch Collection, the Snow Drop Fairy. I love the way  Polstitches hand dyed ‘aphrodite’ 28 count Jobelan sets this design off so perfectly. She is shimmering with pretty Mill Hill beads and Kreinik metallic threads that sparkle like winter’s moonlight on freshly fallen snow. I had such fun working on this series and I  I hope you have enjoyed them too. I have had many requests for other garden fairies from all of you and I hope to bring out some new additions to this series in all new chart packs, so stay tuned.

    The Snowdrop Fairy is so romantic and mysterious ! I got my issue yesterday, and was thrilled with the article about you. What an interesting beginning! I think we all are amazed by your imagination and talent. What an inspiration for us. When we think we’ve seen it all, you take another turn and surprise us again.
    I want to make each and everyone of your fairies. Since it can take up to 3
    months of free time for only one (that’s 12 hours on Saturdays and Sundays both), I can see myself surrounded by all those beautiful Polstitch fabrics! Which means, over time I can afford it all and be happy as a lamb doing YOUR patterns, which I love.
    Recently I got bored on a little design and started your “Grandchilren are the Best Presents” on a whim. LOVE YOUR colors,and symbols and I have 5 grandchildren! It’s perfect. Thank you, Rosemarie
