CROSS STITCH PATTERN, DESIGNED BY Lesley Teare Designs
Gently rising with the sun, in the soft light of dawn, here is Lesley Teare's Dawn Fairy.
Her sumptuous dress is beautifuly embellished around the neckline and waist, and perfectly draped, in many hues of light blue, while the lining shows a starry night. Butterflies accompany the fairy as she spreads her wings in the early dawn. A beautiful methaphor of morning.
The cross stitch design in enhanced with beads and metallic highlights. The fairy's face and body is worked in much detail, for a perfect line (includes factional stitches).
You can pair this piece with the matching Dusk fairy.
The chart comes with an extensive Cross stitch Guide detailing all stitches including fractional stitches.
