04. Nora Corbett Alphabet Fairy M

Nora Corbett Alphabet Fairy M
Stitched on 32 count Sunlit Heath Murano from Crafty Kitten

I used the recommended Crescent Colours except for:

Lettuce Leaf which is a bright green and was supposed to be the lighter colour in the M.  
Instead I blended DMC 927 and 928.  
DMC Blanc for the wings instead of Cloud
DMC 954 for the skin instead of Cobbled Peach
DMC 356 for the backstitch on the skin
Kreinik 014 for the dangling sparklies

02. The Workbasket Fox Forest

I used the DMC conversion and changed some of the colours to suit the fabric.
I also zig-zagged the border instead of two solid lines.
The following photos shows the fabric colour more accurately.
