I picked this sweet thing up from the framer this last weekend. I was really surprised at how small she is. I think it is the smallest thing I have ever had framed! I think the frame is awesome! A little different than what I have chosen in the past, but I think it really sets Pixie Anne off beautifully. I can’t wait for hubby to hang her in my craft room tonight. I am having a problem picking exactly where I want to hang her. I have so much empty wall space to choose from 😉
In case this is your first time seeing her, she is Queen Anne’s Lace by Nora Corbett. This pattern was in the April issue of Just Cross Stitching Magazine. I stitched her on 16ct Aida Carmel Macchiato from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.
Believe it or not, Queen Anne’s Lace was my very first Nora Corbett Pixie that I have stitched. I don’t know why. I have just about all of her Pixie patterns, but haven’t stitched any until now. At one point I was going to stitch 9 of the flower pixies on an afghan. I have since abandoned that idea since the beads would not be a good idea on a blanket and I just couldn’t stitch a pixie without all the beautiful beads and metallic threads. I wonder which Nora Corbett Pixie I will stitch next???
