I'm posting pics on behalf of Linnybelle.
I took the fairy tale "The Snow Queen". I turned it into a story about fairies who are dying off as humans are expanding. The Queen of the fairies calls on humans with fairy magic to come to them to help save them. Only one boy turns up but he is followed by his sweetheart. It wasn't as detailed as I wanted it to be as I was running out of time. I wrote it in the form of diary entries and newspaper clippings.
Here is what I sent;
I stitched a fairy from my "Cross Stitch Myths and Magic" book and stitched it to a pillow.
I knitted a scarf as the fairies were limited to northern regions. Anyone following them would need something to keep them warm. It is knitted with 100% cotton as Linnybelle would be alergic to it otherwise.
I saw this notebook in an art store and really liked it. I decided to decorate it for Linneybelle. I printed snowflakes onto OHP transparencies and the used acrylic paint to colour them and glitter to add sparkle. The cross stitch design I got from the same book as the fairy. I also attached some ribbon that I got from a recent craft fair.
Lastly a set of notecards. These are actually a set of six. I made two of each. Again I used OHP transparancies for the snowflakes. Linnybelle is moving house so I thought she could use them to let people know her new address. Or she can hang onto them to send out at Christmas.
