I had gotten the next fairy ready to go, however, when I went to stitch on her, the 32 count Laguna in Legacy has proved to be a gigantic pain in the tookis. The stitches are not sitting correctly. Some stitches are puffy and others look like I had to wrestle the need through the fabric (which I did!). I am not happy with the way it was turning out, so it's time to reboot that one. I need linen, I think and obviously, sparkly fabric at that :). As this is to be a birthday present, I do want it to look like it's special. I have also decided to change some of the colors in it, so it will be a at least semi-converted piece. I have always thought that Nora Corbett did a fantastic job in choosing colors, so I've never felt the need to change anything other than fabric. I may do some other changes, but for now I'm just enjoying the stitching. :)
In the interest of fairness, I do need to point out that I did change out the fabric in this kit. The original kit came with a 32 count Natural Belfast linen, which I thought washed the delicate pastel floss out. I knew I wanted to stitch it on Crystal Spring , however, the kit was around 50 bucks, plus around 25-30 dollars more for a quarter yard of fabric that I may not have any other use for. I hesitated buying the kit for years, but finally caved in and bought it and the Crystal Spring fabric.
Welp, enough of my blathering. Let's get on with the show! :)
