Butterfly Fairy

I started stitching on her again, I haven't done much on her for along time.

Nearly there....

I've been trying to get Queen Mermaid finished and finally, I'm down to just backstitching and beading left to do.  Yay!

She's got a lot of beads so that will no doubt take a little time.   Good thing I have a day off tomorrow!

Fairy Flora's Wings are Completed

 Fairy Flora by Mirabilia
I am so relieved and happy to have the second wing accomplished!  Although it is hard to tell in the photo, the wings are filled with a metallic blend along with the floss.  The blending filament used in the wings caused this part to be a bear.  Word of advice: find an alternative to kreinik blending filament anytime it is called for in a chart you are stitching.  Almost every strand of blending filament breaks whilst stitching with it, even short strands and threading the needle with it is a test of patience.  Even the beading was a breeze in comparison.  Now that this part is accomplished, the rest is going to be smooth sailing.

The fabric is 32 count Silkweaver Reflections on lugana.  The color is called Enchantment.

Kathy's Valentine Fairy

Here is my latest progress on Valentine Fairy.
I had an issue with her a while ago - my two skeins of Pixie Dust were different dye lots.
Now that I have two skeins the same she is back in the rotation.
I stitched her wings left and right side.
