Finally, I have finished the Cherry Blossom Flower Fairy that was the cover kit with WOCS 176. I have moaned so much about this kit elsewhere! The threads were a nightmare to sort, so many shades of brown, beige and cream. I had to compare and contrast with my DMC stash to get them all right in the end.
I made a couple of changes in the backstitch, grey for the wings and red for her dress. I also coloured the aida in before I started stitching using a nice pale pink felt tip pen. Then I backed her with pink card which gives a lovely pink hue to the fabric. I shall experiment more with colouring aida scraps when I do some card making as it seems to work quite well.
The mount came free with the magazine, they actually charged people an extra £1 this issue but as a subscriber we get it all for the same price which is nice.
