magical fairy garden

If, as a little girl, you loved the thought of fairies living at the bottom of the garden, you’ll love this design by Lesley Teare. She’s used plenty of blended metallic thread to give her fairies a special magical shimmer. This enchanting scene is stitched on 32-count dark blue linen using whole cross stitches, fractional stitches and backstitch. Much of the design is worked in a mixture of stranded cotton and Glissen Gloss thread, which brings the fairies to life. Metallic threads and gold beads add a touch of magic to the garden scene. This design is best suited to stitchers with some experience.You will needThreads: Stranded cotton, metallic thread and blending filament as listed in the keyNeedle: Size 26 tapestry needle, beading needleFabric: 32-count Murano evenweave in deep blue…

enchanted garden

This pretty fairy loves to sit at the bottom of the garden, deep in thought, and watch the butterflies as they flutter amongst the flowers. Perhaps she’s conjuring up ways to spread her fairy magic! Maria took great pleasure from designing this summery scene, especially when it came to reflecting the glow of golden sunshine in the fairy’s beautiful yellow dress. To complement this cheery colour, she’s also used shades of green, pink, purple and orange for the abundant foliage and blooms – all of them bright and beautiful to celebrate the season. The fairy looks so pretty in a pink frame, but you could choose a frame in any colour for an equally lovely finish.You will needThreads: Stranded cotton and metallic threads as listed in the keyNeedle: Size 26…

secret fairy magic

Many of Lesley’s designs are based on a floral or garden theme, because she enjoys taking inspiration from nature. This lovely project was no exception and she had great fun creating the little fairy girls, perched on the edge of the watering can and sitting among the sweet peas. The idea of fairies being at the bottom of the garden was fascinating to us, as children, and this design will appeal to the inquisitive nature of little girls everywhere.You will needThreads: Stranded cotton as listed in the keyNeedle: Size 26 tapestry needleFabric: 28-count white evenweave measuring 43x43cm (17x17in)Extras: Frame and mount of your choice with a minimum aperture of 25.5x25.5cm (10x10in)Stitching FactboxStitching time: Approx 40 hoursType of stitches: Cross stitch, backstitch, French knotsLevel: IntermediateHow to tackle this project if you’re…
