Friday Freebie: Snowflake Ornament

This snowflake ornament was inspired by seeing people posting about the first snow of the season. It always surprises me that people get snow so early in the year, especially when I see that they are more or less on the same latitude as me and we are having weather that is just a bit too warm for snow.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: The Border Pattern

Welcome to the first pattern of the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: the border! As you may already know the weekly patterns that will fill the border will create one large band sampler designed using weavers draft patterns found on the Antique Pattern Library site which I transferred into a cross stitch pattern.

Surprise Freebies: Remembrance Day Poppies

This year to commemorate Remembrance Day I have designed two poppy patterns. The plan was to only make one but I ended up with two and decided to share both. The first you can see above is a simple poppy wreath shape with the 11 NOV backstitched.

Friday Freebie: New Flowers

As you may have seen in my last post my stash has been enhanced with the contents of the DMC tin of 35 new flosses. Since their arrival they have been a bit noisy asking to be used for something as they didn't travel all this way to just land in a box and not get used.

WIP Wednesday

As always I'm starting with my Vakje per Week. This time the pattern was a rather large one and my space rather tiny so instead of doing two whole and a partial shape I offset it all and did lots of partial ones.

Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: The Completed Border

Last time you saw the border it looked like this - and in the sunshine you can see the fabric's real colour, which you can't see below. Yesterday I stitched a whopping 1284 stitches - the most I have ever stitched!

Friday Freebie: A Tiny Cookie

This week's Friday freebie is a tiny cookie pattern - it's just 17x17 stitches square so really lives up to it being called tiny! As to what such a small pattern can be used for... the options are just about endless.

Wip Wednesday - A Two Week Wrap Up

Unfortunately not everything goes to plan in life and last week's WIP Wednesday blog was one of the casualties of this. This week I have succeeded at making the post so I hope you enjoy the pictures! As always I'm starting with the Vakje Per week which you can see has had 2 weeks worth of stitching since you last saw it.

Friday Freebie: Weavers Tapestry Fob and Pincushion


This week's Friday Freebie is inspired by the weavers draft patterns found on the Antique Pattern Library site which I transferred into a cross stitch pattern. Some elements from this pattern can also be found on the Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler that I'm hosting as a SAL here (with a fb group too!), but not all.
