A new start - Yule Fairy

I have started “Yule fairy” so far I have 199 stitches completed.

It took forever to grid the fabric using thread but I think I may have found a pen that is thin enough to work on 25count but if not I have ordered one that claims to be ultra fine so hopefully it will make gridding the rest of it easy.

 I feel it’s stitched up pretty quick and hope it stays that way

I did start on doing some more but to me the colour looks wrong. It looks too green where as in the picture of the finished piece it’s more of a grey

The colours look fine to me and it's a beautiful start!

Well done on your new start. Personally I think I would grid with thread as I am nervous about drawing on the fabric in case it doesn't come out properly!

Look forward to your next update ;0)
