With buds on the daffodils and the first crocuses blooming in our city gardens, Spring has finally sprung! Just in time to bring in this wonderful season of renewal, my little  Spring Fairy is out in the current issue, # 176,  of Cross Stitch Crazy now on sale in the UK and it is also available for instant download on your iPads worldwide! Isn’t it lovely to start thinking of the cheerful colors and fragrances of springtime after a long winter. This little fairy has gathered armfuls of brilliantly colored tulips to welcome in the  season and bring a little sunshine to your stitching.

    Ah, there she is! Here in my part of Germany we are still in the grip of winter with snow and temperatures close to 0°C!!! So, to stitch something like this would be wonderful. We have been told that by Easter, temps should be rising and after Easter Spring should be in full swing. Really hope so!! This time last year we had summery temps!! Sigh!!

    She is so pretty and such lovely colours. We are going into winter in SA so this would be lovely to stitch to remind me of spring on the way.

    Dear Joan,
    Just quick note to tell you that I love your designs they are just beautiful
    I was wondering what color of fabric from polstitches do you recommend for the Red Geshia? Keep up those gorgeous designs. Oh one more thing I have been a big fan of yours for thirty years.Thank you for inspiring me to stitch that long and I’m loving it every minute of it.
    From Monique

    absolutely beautiful, I can’t wait until I can get the materials needed and stitch this beauty. I am looking for the entire collection of the angels and the collection of the flower fairies. Does anyone have any idea where I might find them? Without paying a ransoms price of course. I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions anyone has.
