Fairy Garden is #11 in the Blackbird Design Garden Series. This series of twelve can be stitched as one large project or as individual pieces as I chose to stitch them. The suggested fabric is 32ct Straw by Weeks Dye Works. I chose to stitch it on 16ct Regency Aida with Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe threads.
The tiny house surrounded by the lush garden is an invitation for any fairy passing through to step in and take up residence or rest a bit.. After all, what fairy worth her salt wouldn’t want to have the spectacular view offered here.
I started stitching this one on November 8, 2016 and completed it on November 13, 2016.
