Halloween Fairy is Finished

Here she is! I was so excited when I came home from work tonight and my Kreinik was waiting for me! It is still on back order with the original ONS, but I found that my ebay buddy, Janet, had it in stock and she expedited it right to me! I will give her a little plug here, as she totally deserves to be known by you: Home Sweet Home Needlecrafts - thank you so much Janet!!

So, without further ado, let me introduce you to....

Halloween Fairy

Nora Corbett in Cross-Stitch & Needlework, September 2008

Silkweaver 32 ct Phantom Belfast Linen, DMC Floss, Kreinik #4 Braids and Mill Hill Beads


I am going to miss her now... ;-) I need to get a better photo of her, this one is a little overexposed.

Stitched on today: Finished Halloween Fairy **Mailed out Christmas ornament to Vonna for Christmas Ornament Swap, SBEBB Shepherd's Bush Exchange and Katrina's Neighborhood Round Robin to An today

This is so beautiful. Because of your posts, I had to find that issue. It's now in my queue to work on. I hope you don't mind if I copy yours. The fabric you used just adds to the charm of this piece.

She's absolutely beautiful! I started stitching her after seeing you start. I'm not quite half-way yet, but I haven't found all of the supplies, either. I hadn't thought to check Ebay; I'll have to check in to that.
