Skirting the issue
Fleece Fairy now has a face--or part of one, anyway, worked in basketweave with DMC floss. I'll add eyes and eyebrows when I've decided what color her hair will be.
She also has a dress, again worked in basketweave with DMC floss #225 and shadows of DMC floss #224. The white cuffs of her sleeves were worked in a satin stitch. I added a single row of tent stitches at the neckline with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid to distinguish between her neck and her dress.
Her bolero was added with antique blue Petite Very Velvet, extending the right side a bit to cover some of the rose at her shoulder.
Love the combination of pink and blue!
