Punk project challenge (week two, since I have effectively overslept the previous one) is to make a project using my favorite colors. And for me nothing represents my favorite color – blue – than the beautiful Mediterranean doors, deep blue on perfectly white walls. So today I made a big pattern using three images of such doors.
The pattern, as usual, is completely free to download (look for the link below the image).

Pattern size: 327 x 136 stitches, 27 colors (approx. 46 x 19 cm on #18 canvas)
Uses: cross stitches, back stitches.
I found this picture in the web and instantly fell in love with it. A little chapel lost somewhere in a field – what could possibly be more romantic? I hope you will enjoy this pattern as much as I do 🙂

I made a small and simple pattern for you today 🙂 Tall houses on this square pattern form a design that can be used to make a biscornu (small eight-sided pincushion) or a big cushion.

There’s something magical about doors, as if sometimes a door is a gate to another world or dimension. The most beautiful doors that I’ve seen so far were in Tunisia and in Ireland. Tunisian doors are usually deep blue in color and covered with ornaments or carvings, while Irish doors like to be on the bright side and make an amazing contrast to green-and-gray reality around them.
Anyway, today’s chart is yet another door, straight from the Italian province of Tuscany (the one with great olive oil and even better wine). The door itself may be quite common, but I love the flowers around in and lots of different greens in the overall picture.

But I feel I’m growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill going ’round
I guess I’ll always be
A soldier of fortune…
Todays cross stitch pattern features an old windmill standing on the seashore. I could not help of remembering the Deep Purple song from above while working on the chart, even had to turn it on on Youtube.

A couple of days ago I spotted that some people are searching for “home” pattern on my blog. Up until now I haven’t made any patterns with homes or houses, so I hurried to make one.
Home Sweet Home cross stitch chart is made in black-and-white silhouette style. Beside the house itself I drew traditional attributes of a good home: a tree with apples/flowers, a mailbox, and a cat. ( BTW I will befriend Facebook page of the first commenter who will find the cat in this pattern 😉 )
Stitch count: 105w x 75h, 1 color

It’s winter again making the world outside my window quite cold and very snowy. And though the picture there is not idyllic in any way, I decided to put some additional joy into the holiday season. Today’s free cross stitch pattern is a snow scenery with big snow covered tree and a simple thatched cottage.
The pattern is moderately big and is not recommended for beginners.
