There are Fairies At The Bottom Of My Garden

I have really enjoyed the last few days stitching on this project. It is such fun to stitch, with lots of beads - I have added a few but most I am leaving until the end, and lots of twinkly threads, though I think I have added lots more of those too.. It was originally from The Cross Stitcher magazine, but me being me, lol there are lots of alterations and additions.

The original picture did have dragonflies and ladybirds, but my garden has lots of birds and snails too so I added them. I have also added a wee mouse as we have one of those that lives in the greenhouse. I really think I should add some frogs but not sure about them yet, dont really know where to hide them lol.
