Madame La Fee Cross Stitch - My work in progress

Ever since I laid my eyes on Madame La Fee cross stitch patterns, it has been on my wish list :)
I'm thrilled when I finally own it, and was even more delighted when I finally started working on it about 2 months ago.

If you had been following my blog, you'd know that I fell head over heels in love with this one.

When I finally got my hands on the chart, I started digging through my stash for the light pink fabric (as recommended) to stitch on. Just amazingly enough, I have a pink fabric in my collection and the size was just perfect for it. However as I have been keeping the fabric for a long time, it has a few yellow spots here and there, so the first thing I had to do was to wash and remove the yellow spots which I did successfully by washing and using some fabric stain remover. Some folks said baking soda would help too but I don't have that at home, so I just tried using what I have at home.

My progress has been slow but I'm glad this is a easy chart to stitch. They consist of all full cross stitches so it's very enjoyable too. I'm currently working on the cupcake, and once I'm done, I'll move onto the right hand side of the chart!
