You may remember that back in September I posted pictures of all my finished DMC Flower Fairies Cross Stitch Kits to date. I also had this one unfinished, and as you can see now she is finished... so I introduce to you the Lavender Fairy. I have a couple of charts for some more small fairies from the collection which I will do next year, but this one has been awaiting my attention for ages. Truth be told, I was putting off finishing it, mainly because I had so many french knots to add to the design, all the lavender flowers and the centre of her dress is made up of these:
Now as much of a fiddly pain in the ass they were to stitch I have to say that they do look really good and the end result is well worth the annoyance that I went through. Now I just need to find a set of different sized matching frames for all my fairies so I can display them as at the moment they are just in a big pile in my stitching box, which is such a waste, especially considering how much time and work went into making them.
