This is June’s Pearl Fairy. I stitched her in 2001 for someone special. Sorry for the photo. It’s a scan of the photo I took of the piece before shipping it to the recipient for her birthday in June 2001. She is currently hanging in my dad’s house and I do hope to get it back one day as Barb passed away a year ago. The frame was perfect. I had picked up 2 frames at a crafter’s garage sale several years prior to stitching this. It was an old wooden frame that the crafter painted gold and drizzled black and gold paint over. When I purchased the pattern for this fairy, I knew that she would be perfect in this frame. The other frame I have is a black rectangle frame with gold drizzling that I think will be perfect for Lady Alexandra. This fairy is stitched on 16ct white Aida. I know it looks pink in the photo, but it is actually white.

This is so beautiful!! I think that you really do have a talent for doing fairies. They always come out so gorgeous, and the frame matches perfectly.
Thanks. Your stitching is awesome, too.
She looks lovely in that frame! I have thought about haunting garage sales for frames and then matching them up with Mira designs. Just haven’t gotten around to it.
Thanks, Johanna. I bought those 2 frames about 10-12 years ago and haven’t found any since. Most people see framed art and while I have seen some frames I like, I don’t want to pay $20 or more for the frame and art I will just toss. But I still look.
Oh wow…that frame is absolutely perfect! It certainly shows off the wonderful stitching.
Thank you. It was a great find.
