12. Stitch for Syria - Gold

This is for the Concern Stitching for Syria project.  
The charity is running a Women's Centre in Lebanon and wants to make a hanging for the walls to show the women that the international stitching community is aware of their difficulties.
You sign up on the website and they send you a little chart to stitch and send the square to their London office.

The pair together:

10.Nora Corbett Alphabet Fairy E


Stitched on 32 count Love-in-the-Mist Murano from Crafty Kitten

I stitched her pretty much as charted with all the recommended CC threads.  
Once again I changed the backstitch to 356 for her skin and also 3371 for the swirls.  
The original chart has an extra border around three sides but, as with C, I decided she didn't need that extra border.
