Cross Stitch Elves & Fairies

I started stitching these a few years back and recently discovered them again - five were complete, one only needed a bit of back stitch, and the last two hadn't been started, so I thought I'd better finish the set before I got on with anything new. I stitched them on 18 count fabric, instead of the recommended 14 count, which proved really fiddly, but I think the end result makes them worth the effort, eye strain, and headaches... Doubt I'll stitch them again though. @_@

Oh, those are beautiful. What an awesome job you've done, even if they were fiddly!

Thank you! I love cross stitching, and a few years ago stitching on 18 count was no problem, but my eyes are getting old so now I have to resort to a magnifier... The main problem was there were so many places where it was just three stitches in one colour and four in another. If I even stitch these again, I'll reduce the number of colours to make it easier.
