A hairdo and a hem
Fleece Fairy finally has hair, worked in a satin stitch with two strands of vintage DMC Medici wool. To minimize the original flowers, I extended the hair down the side of her face and at shoulder level. One strand of Medici wool formed her eyebrows with eyes worked in cross stitches with DMC floss.
The flowers in her hair and at the hem were stitched in French knots with two shades of pink DMC floss, with tent stitch leaves of Impressions. At this point, she reminds me of Marie Antoinette pretending to be a shepherdess!
Now to begin a French knot marathon to finish the lamb and the project itself!
