Butterfly Fairy

Yesterday I was able to put some time in on Butterfly Fairy by Joan Elliott.

There is just something about her pieces that I absolutely love. I have MANY of her patterns in my stash and even more on my wish list to acquire. I would love to have a wall in my house dedicated to her fairies - maybe in my stitching haven (that I'm starting to plan out - more on that sometime soon). Here is where I got to last night:

I spent quite a bit of time on the one over one skin of her arm. I think it looks good so far! I've also decided after looking over the pattern for a bit yesterday that I'm going to substitute the kreinik French Knots (the idea of doing those in kreinik makes me cringe) with Mill Hill beads, so I ordered a few  of those last night, too.

As long as I don't bend over, my back is pretty much back to normal. Thanks to everyone for your well wishes! I can now walk without a cane, I don't need the pain meds, I'm just going to crouch to pick things up rather than bend for awhile!

Until next time!


  1. Oh she's beautiful! Love that fabric.

  2. She is looking beautiful. I hope you continue to recover and your back feels better soon.

  3. So lovely! Don't blame you at all - I hate Kreinik. Mill Hill beads will be a wonderful substitute! :D

  4. She's beautiful. I've been debating over 1 for skin, but haven't got that far yet!

  5. Gorgeous! Love the over 1 for the skin.
