I am the craftiest daughter of a very crafty mother. She taught me a lot of crafty basics when I was young. In k-12, I used to get in trouble for drawing on my schoolwork. Later on I picked up a paintbrush and taught myself how to paint. For a brief period in college, I played with a computer based paper doll program (kisekae) and I got quite handy with a mouse. Today, I use my chronic doodling habit to develop cross stitch and embroidery patterns.
I'm taking a break from designing patterns to work on a crazy quilt project. There are several new embroidery designs that I'm developing for this project. When it's done, I will work on publishing them as patterns here.
Spring is just beginning to blossom all around and this long, winter is coming to an end. In celebration of this this, I present this delightful little springtime fairy to welcome in the warmer seasons.
Where I live there are tiny bright green leaves beginning to unfurl like the leaves on her dress. The redbud trees will soon explode with brilliant violet and fuschia colored blooms contrasting again the dark colored bark tree, like her vibrant wings and rich wavy hair. To me, these are the colors of early spring.
This pattern comes with the Spring Fairy in two sizes: 6 inches tall and 4 inches tall. Mirror images are also included. Color and stitch guides provide some friendly suggestions.
