Away With The Fairies....

...............that's my state of mind a lot of the time!

I stitched the text using my trusty sewing machine this morning. It is always a bit scarey to start machine stitching on a piece you have spent a lot of time on in case it goes horribly wrong. It is so much harder to unpick than hand stitching! Thankfully, it went well and I'm really pleased with the result (though the photo is a little dark).

Now I need to stitch some French knots to dot the "i"s, then I can get on with the quilting.


  1. Thats lovely. I know what you mean about the unpicking. Thank goodness you didnt have to.

  2. This is so pretty, I love it! I have been doing some machine embroidery today, check out my blog later this week for the photos :)
