Halloween Fairy Happy Dance!


Just a quick post from me, seeings as I've just taken a photo of my new happy dance and wanted to share it. ;-)

She only took 10 days to complete. Fabric: Sugar Maple Fabrics Burnt Papyrus 28-Count Lugana. I ran out of Crescent Colours Dandelion Stem *and* Black Coffee. I'd recommend purchasing a second skein of the Dandelion Stem and making sure the dye lots are the same. As I said in a previous post, if you happen to run out of the Black Coffee (which you may not - I only just ran out), I don't think it's a big deal using a very dark brown shade of DMC for the backstitching (e.g. in the wings) instead, rather than having to buy a whole additional skein.

Of course, as this is a kit, you may want to contact the manufacturers to see if they'll send out the extra floss you need? After all, you're spending all that money, they should really be giving you enough of the materials you need.

Well done. I'm well on the way to finishing mine but I am really jealous of the fabric you've used. I stuck to the fabric in the kit and now I wish I'd been a bit more adventourous. x
