Pretty Ballerina

8th Dec 2015

I have just had a wonderful two weeks away in Cambodia and Vietnam. A brilliant and very interesting holiday to an area I knew little about. The people were lovely in both countries with such charm and dignity when many are so poor, especially along the banks of the Mekong river. It was a priviledge to see them at work and in their environment.

Back to work now and the picture of the pretty ballerina can be found in the latest edition of Cross Stitch Crazy, issue 211. This design is worked in mostly whole stitches, with fractionals for the dancer's dainty features, there's also plenty of French knots and seed beads for texture.
