Hope you have all had a good week and, if in the Uk, a bit more sunshine has been very welcome.
One of our lovely FB group messaged me to ask if I had forgotten the antennae on the butterflies in part 2 and also for part 8 in due course. Not deliberate on my part as I don't think I am worried either way. I have shown the complete sampler today with them added, as I thought you might like...
Well the sun has finally shown its face here in the Northern hemisphere in time for this weeks pretty strawberry flower and fruit. I am waiting for my green fruit to start changing colour and hopefully pick them before the birds get there!
Lovely to see the pictures of last week's carnation so please do keep sending them in.
Hope you all have a good week and plenty of stitching,
Our first flower for our new part series is the pretty carnation with a small butterfly. If you prefer a paler outline then give 3799 a try. It is simple to stitch and all of these motifs will make lovely cards as well as an attractive sampler when stiched together with the border.
It's hard to believe that we are going to start another project. Exciting, but I just wonder where all the other weeks went to!
This time a medley of 8 Summer flowers and a pretty bird house. The flowers are a carnation, strawberry flower and fruit, briar rose, iris, pansy, potentilla - crept in here as its shape was what I wanted! - blackberry and its flower and then finally a Summer clematis. There is some artistic licence with a couple...
It is hard to believe that we are on the final design of my Floral sampler part series that has taken us through the past 9 weeks with individual flowers to stitch. Some of you have made them into pretty cards and one stitcher, had the great idea of making them into Kitchen magnets, and of course, the complete sampler which many of you have stitched.
The last one is the pretty pansy that we can grow during the year through...
It seems amazing that we only have one more week to go before I add the final design for this part series. It has been really lovely again to see all of your stitched pieces, thank you. A colourful image this week with red hips that brighten our hedgerows here in the Winter.
Two more designs have been added to my Shop this week, one, a pretty picture of a our lovely wren amongst Summer scabious; one of my favourite flowers.
I have also added a new design based on my signature style of a fusion of colourful cross stitches and the decorative blackwork that I love so much. There are four pretty Spring flower designs that can...
Part 6 this week of my Floral sampler part series and a pretty briar rose for you to stitch. All of the flowers are ideal to stitch for quick cards for family and friends as well as making a delightful sampler.
I hope your week has gone well and happy stitching.
