Pretty floral cross stitch design work in progress

Hi everyone, I started stitching one of my new designs this week, I thought I would stitch it in my favourite colour palette of pink and green. Whilst stitching I decided to make a necklace from one of the flowers. I have not attached the beads on the flowers yet, I just placed them to get an idea how the completed design would look.

Santa's on his way!


Hi everyone, here is my latest stitchery, it is a free design from Bronwyns Blog over at Red Brolly, she really has some gorgeous freebies on her blog. I downloaded this Santa design and these three others, I think they are all so cute! The Santa design has been stitched using wadding in between the top fabric and the base fabric to give it a quilted look.

I traced the design using this fine tip pen that works beautifully on fabric, (see photo below) it is a permanent marker.

Apologies for the pictures, they are a little blurred.

Country Cottage Needlework - Santa's Village

 
 
Hi everyone, look what arrived in the post, one of my favourite pattern designers have created this lovely cross stitch design called Santa's Village.  
I am looking forward to stitching this Country Cottage Needlework , I ordered the full set of these patterns from The Patchwork Rabbit, one will be delivered every month until December 2103.
I ordered the fabric large enough to stitch them all on one piece of fabric, although you can stitch them separately if you wish. DMC threads  are used together with speciality threads and a pretty little button is added to the mix every month. You have no idea what the other designs look like until they arrive, it is a real Christmas Surprise!

Cross stitched box finally finished!

 
 

 
Hi everyone, I have finally finished the cross stitched Peacock Box - at last! 
You can see how to make a box like this if you check out my tutorials blog.

The pattern details can be found in this previous post
 
I have posted lots of pictures below.
 
 
 
 
 
Of course you know I love those Swarovski crystals!
 
 
I used DMC thread to make the cord for a  perfect match. 
 
I was going to put separate compartments in this but decided against the idea - perhaps next time. 
 
 
 
 
 
Last but not least, a bottlecap pincushion trimmed with Mill Hill beads.
 
Happy stitching everyone - until next time!
