Petal Fairy XL

Hello friends. 
I'm stitching Petal Fairy on a 14ct. beige aida instead of the linen it requires (for reasons stated in my post a long time ago). And I did not expect it to be this HUGE.

Yep, I said huge because it's covering most of my body while stitching. Please, no questions about height. I think I plateaued at the tender age of 12, lol.

Here it is, with 2 shades in.
 Do you hear what I hear? Doesn't it look like a giant ear?
Can't avoid those creases due to handling difficulties.
I caught DH eyeing my swamped state. That look that either says he feels sorry for you or he feels sorry for himself...or maybe both, haha. (Oh well, as long as I'm happy, I know he's happy).
Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!


  1. Lovely new start I know you will love stitching this one.

  2. Hahaha...I'm sure it will look great though, if you can unravel yourself from the fabric..!

  3. Petal fairy is such a beautiful pattern. Look forward to seeing her appear!

  4. I'm sure she will be beautiful whatever her size. I love the cute photos you include at the bottom of your posts - always so funny!

  5. She is beautiful after all, so why not have her on a bigger scale :)

  6. Well she will be glorious, won't she!

  7. Yes it does look like an ear. Pretty ear though haha. Have you ever tried a Q-Snap frame? That would help keep the fabric out of the way for you. I couldn't live without mine now.
