With wedding season fast approaching I thought I'd give you something to make for you big day. You might use it for a sign, have them stitched for the tables or covering you album. However you choose to use it and in whatever colour scheme you have I hope you have a long and happy Marriage.
This is definitely one for people with a sweet tooth. A great recipe to make with children as it is a no cook fudge. No boiling sugar and sugar thermometers to contend with. Packaged up it would make a great gift for teacher for the end of class.
With Summer on it's way I always find myself more attracted to floral things. That might be cut flowers in my kitchen, a floral tea dress to wear at the weekend or something to stitch. With Summer in mind I created this set of retro floral designs for you to stitch. Enjoy!
I have been working on some new designs for my Etsy store recently. I have looked back at some of fashion illustration work and have stared turning them into cross stitch patterns. Tweaking them here and there. I wanted to share the first one I have listed in my Etsy store I call her girl with the red lips.
This is the original drawing, I have just scanned it into the computer, if you look closely you can see the pencil drawing underneath. This is how I like to do my illustrative work. Work lightly first in pencil them make bold line with either a fine liner or pen and link. I do love a jet black outline.
