Beechnut Fairy Cross Stitch
Here's a closer view of her, she's soooo cute....
Having seen all the lovely Autumn inspired handmade items over at Stiched in Color - I was reminded of this that I made a few years ago.
It now hangs on my mum & dad's wall and I think it took about 10 years on and off to complete! I don't do as much cross stitch now as I find it time consuming and also a bit restrictive as I need to follow the pattern carefully. I have several that still need finishing, including one from a charity shop that I have just seen is £79 new....so I might dig that one out of the cupboard. I wonder how many part finished sewing projects are hidden away in other crafters houses, when they move on to a new craft?
