Hello, hello! I’m happy to announce my first cross stitch finish of the year.
Fairy has become my favorite subject to stitch this last couple of years, and I’m so excited to add a new one to my ( small ) collection – okay, I only have two finished fairies, so I could hardly call that a collection. But my mission is to stitch as many DMC flower fairies as I possibly could. This one is pretty and playful Almond Blossom Fairy, stitch in 16-count cream Aida. I finished it in two months, which is pretty quick for my standard so I couldn’t be happier, especially after overcoming the challenging parts – french knots ( my first ever project with french knots ) and numerous half backstitches.
Just for fun, here is the progress snapshots I took with my phone. The different filters in each photos is not very pleasing to the eyes, but seeing past that, I find it quite interesting looking back into the progress.
