This little design was sent to me as part of the facebook NZ Cross Stitcher’s fantasy exchange earlier in the year. I stitched some fairies and finished them as a double-sided hanging ornament (lots of Kreinik blending filament so it would sparkle). This was the first time I’d seen an ornie finished like this – currently it lives on my bathroom shelf next to the coral piece B made for me a couple of years ago. And lots of shells.

Really clear pictures here: http://meadows08.blogspot.co.nz/2012/01/gift-for-my-aunt.html where the stitcher has used chipboard coasters as the underlying form
Plus there are plenty of pintrest boards to follow! #enabling
