Week 4 - Fairy SAL

As I move onto the easier part of the fairy,  Essie begins the wings. She has also already picked out all the detail with backstitch. 

I have opted for a different colour for the skirt and fairy dust, using cream thread with Kreinik for a subtle hint of sparkle.

Both beautiful in their own right.  Another week or two and we'll have completed her!

Week 3 - Fairy SAL

Another evening of stitching our Fairy Stitchalong and some real progress has been achieved. 

Essie chose to add definition with some back stitch. 

While I chose to complete the wings.  The paler colours don't stand out well on this fabric.

Update on Pink Heart Butterflies

September's effort.

Kitting up

My pal Essie and I have planned a stitchalong. 

We each have the same chart, fabric and basic threads, with a small element of artistic licence.

We are going to stitch on it for just one evening a week then share our progress.
