What a brilliant start last week for our new sampler. Lots of lovely pictures coming in from you which is such a delight to see.
Part 2 of a stylised snowdrop is this week's motif. I noticed yesterday in our garden that many are already in leaf so I hope it won't be too long before the flowers start to appear. Such a delightful little plant.
I hope you have a good stitching week and keep safe,
We start another part series design today for Winter/Spring which will link in with the previous Summer and Autumn designs. All of these designs are based on a fusion of colourful cross stitches and delicate blackwork for 9 pretty motifs to stitch and which will take our sampler project through to March 2021.
Today, you can download all the details, KEY and the pdf file for the border which also shows the guide lines in red for the placemnet of each...
Thank you for all of your support through this past year, one which has been so difficult for everyone. It has been lovely catching up with so many of you through my Face Book pages and seeing lovely pictures of your work.
I hope you all manage to have a pleasant Christmas.
Amazing to think that Christmas 2020 is nearly here. This simple Christmas design will be my last free design for you to download until Wedneday 30th December. when I will be starting my seasonal blackwork sampler - the Winter one. The Spring, Summer and Autumn samplers have been really great with so many lovely comments and pictures from you of your stitched pieces. Thank you.
More exciting news from me is that my new Stich - along is again available from...
Lovely pictures coming in from you of the robin and little reindeer from my two previous Blogs, so I do hope the little snowman will be a lovely addition. What a joy to also see the talented ways so many of you complete the designs with lovely frames and cards that really help to 'show' them off.
Another blackwork with colourful cross stitches has been added to my Shop this week. This sampler design is suitable to be framed or made...
This cute little reindeer is my free chart for you to download this week. I hope you will enoy stitching him.
I am delighted to say that two new charts have been added to my Shop - one, a decorative Spring view of the Eiffel Tower and the second, my latest Blackwork design, with of course, added colourful cross stitches and a cheeky wren who sits amongst the pretty scabious flowers. I hope you will like both.
Another week, and just more problems for so many. Perhaps just the time to settle down and enjoy our stitching. Keep calm.
A small cross stitch design for you today which can make a lovely Christmas card. Please add to it - perhaps gold Algerian stars or a simple gold border line worked in backstitching could be a nice addition.
Look forward to seeing how you get on and please stay safe.
I hope you will agree, as I thought a slight break from my blackwork sampler series, as we lead up to December and Christmas, might be a good idea. This will mean we can start January 2021 off with my new Blackwork Winter sampler! The details of this will start Wednesday 30th January 2021.
Till then, I hope to add individual motifs each week which will be suitable for small Christmas cards. But for today, we have my owl who is...
