Say hello to Nora Corbett’s The Sunflower Fairy:
Design published in Cross-Stitch & Needlework Magazine’s September 2009 issue.
Stitched on 32 count overdyed linen named Days Gone By from Silkweaver.
Used the beads and fibers called for, with a few exceptions:
- Substituted Old Oak Tree by Crescent Colours for Valdani V4 Golden Brown
(due to what I think was a mislabeling of my Valdani skein)
- Substituted Kreinik #4 braid 221 for the wings
- Substituted DMC 898 for the backstitching of the wings and antennae
- Substituted DMC 948 for the skin, which I recharted to stitch over one
Woot! Great job!!
