Stitch Maynia 2016 - Day 2 - Fragile Landing by KLT Charting - 02.05.16

If you haven't heard of Maynia before please see my post from 1st May - don't want to repeat myself everyday and bore everyone.

My day 2 project is called Fragile Landing and it was charted by Kim at KLT Charting - unfortunately this chart is no longer available but she has loads more gorgeous charts so go and have a look.  She also sells hand dyed fabric and DMC threads at a very reasonable price and she has excellent customer service.

This is a picture of the chart:-

I am stitching this on a 28 count Ice Dyed opalescent from Jodyri Designs.  It took a long while for me to find a project I wanted to stitch on this gorgeous project but I thought this one was perfect as the fabric will show through in the "holes".  I am stitching 2 over 2 full crosses.  I decided to do the outline in DMC 310 and I am stitching the Dragonfly in a hand dyed floss from Crafty Kitten called Aurora.

Here's the picture of the progress I made today:

Keep stitching and smiling

That fabric is stunning and the piece you are stitching is just perfect. Your start looks fantastic!

I love this! You saved your fabric for the perfect design, and since I'm partial to dragonflies I can't wait to see this finished. I won't mention that you added a downer by saying this pattern is no longer available, haha.
