A Little Cross Stitch Fairy

Good Evening Crafty Friends.

I have read quite a few times that a lot of us crafters started out cross stitching?  Did you?

I remember I started in 1995 and the first mag I bought was Cross Stitcher.  The free gift was a little bunny bookmark.  I did the bookmark and then I did a rabbit picture from one of the patterns and I was hooked.

I still love Cross Stitch but find it a little time consuming.  You get such a quick fix making cards.

Thought I would share with you this little Christmas Fairy.  She is made from a small kit from DMC and I haven't decided what to make her into yet.

  1. Oh yes Michelle, I am one of those crafters that started out with cross stitch, in fact I still have several magazine boxes full of old Cross Stitcher and Quick and Easy Cross stitch magazines that I don't have the heart to recycle. I love your adorable little Christmas fairy, she would look cute padded out and made into a bauble!! xx

  2. She's a cutie :) Many thanks for joining the Rhedd and Rosie’s challenge and good luck!!! Melissa (DT)
