Flowers and Shy Fairy Embroidery

Hi, everyone! Spring is in the air even though it is still officially 'winter'. We have had a lot of pleasant days with temperatures in 60s-80s. It seems like every flower that can bloom is out in force.

We pushed ourselves last week by working as much as possible in order to have the four day weekend off from work for Mardi Gras.

These last four days have been a mental break we all needed. Looking at our city holiday calendar, our next four day holiday won't be until Thanksgiving.

I didn't spend the holiday downtown at the Mardi Gras parades, but opted to stay at home with a book and a few crafting projects.

I started my Shy Fairy embroidery project last Friday as my Frolicking Friday project. I love the DMC colors that came with the kit.

Yesterday was my 'Frolicking Friday' since I wanted a full day of stitching on my day off instead of my normal Friday of maybe two hours of stitching total.

I was able to finish up my Shy Fairy embroidery. I didn't stitch the small flowers and hearts around the main design since I wouldn't be able to display it in a hoop with those motifs embroidered. The fabric that came with the kit is cut too small to allow for the stitching of those motifs if you intend on displaying it in an embroidery hoop.

This morning while at Hobby Lobby, I was debating on whether to get another one of the Tamar Nahir-Yanai kits, but I persuaded myself not to since I know I have a bunch of small stitching projects I could stitch up instead.

I hope you are having a great day! Until next time ^____^


  1. I love to see your flowers. Here the snowdrops slowly come out of the ground.
    The little shy fairy looks so sweet, a wonderful design.

    1. I'm sure they do with the actual 'winter' weather you have!

      Thanks :) I'm slowly trying to improve on my embroidery skills.
