Do you believe in fairies?

The 5 year old girl in me believed in fairies. She watched them fly into blossoms, marvelled at their fairy rings and travelled with them to their woody land using fairy dust whilst sleeping...


Hence why she couldn't resist this pattern.  It is by Bucilla and is called "Touch of Gold". It is stitched on 28 count mushroom evenweave.

The pastel colours draw me in.  Their softness and hues relax me. And I haven't even started stitching the fairy yet.


As I write this my thoughts are with those fellow Tasmanians directly impacted by severe bushfires 30km away. I am wishing them safety and hope the hot, windy weather abates.

Thank you for reading.... Jan x

Beautiful stitching. Stay safe down there, we haven't been too bad up here in Queensland and thankfully the weather just got cooler.
