Birds, Butterflies & Fairies!
The Mystery of the BirdsI’ve been working away on the Mystery Chart and the second bird is not looking so mysterious now! Progress on this chart is now at about 53% complete, so just over the halfway mark.
Butterflies Galore!I'm very excited to share that Freddy Werner is stitching the butterfly chart I made! You can see pictures (posted in the downloads tab with permission) or follow her stitching progress via Instagram. She is considering filling the wings in with variegated thread… I can't wait to see more of her stitching!
I have always loved butterflies. When Heaven & Earth did requests I asked to have Adolescence by Dahlig charted. I've had this chart waiting in the wings for some time due to my indecision about fabric and also trying not to have too many projects on the go (which I’ve obviously relaxed about lol!) I do plan to start stitching this (next year) and finally have fabric sorted for it. It will be stitched on 25 count but I still feeling indecisive about whether to tent it or do a full cross…

Fairies & Bingo FunJune the 24th was International Fairy Day and the BB held a Fairy Bingo Competition to celebrate! The fairies wreaked havoc and there were two of us that won on the same day! I was one of the winners! For my win I picked a chart that I think pays great homage to the fairy kingdom called “The Elementals.”

The mock-up looks very washed out on the website, so I'm hoping it comes out closer to the original piece of art. I will start this one eventually but for the moment it is going on the “to be stitched” list with Adolescence! I’m planning on trying out 28 count fabric on this chart. I haven’t tried a count that high before and I do like trying new counts, fabrics and thread combinations. The other part of the chart win was gifted to my sister, as I wanted to do something special for her. She got Josephine Walls “Peacock Daze” which also has gorgeous colours in it!
