The name says it all: here is a new freebie, and it is heavily inspired by beautiful work of William Morris. I have seen some of his amazing gobelins when a large Pre-Rafaelite collection was exhibited in Pushkin art museum in Moscow. The whole exhibition was an overwhelming experience!

Usually I post cross stitch freebies on Tuesdays, but yesterday was somewhat intense – and because of that I made a freebie today (and that is so not OCD, I’m really impressed by myself). Anyway, today I turned into a pattern this public domain image (sending my regards to the unknown author!) with beautiful Hibiscus flowers. It came out very light and easy, with less than ten colors of floss used.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a poll, asking all my readers about their favourite themes for cross stitching. Now I know that you like to cross stitch flowers :), therefore today’s freebie is flower. (And yes, I love flowers too!) It is a pattern that can be used for a bookmark or as a motif.
The flower is adapted from one of the 19th century folk artworks of John van Minian.

Two bookmarks that I made today are continuing the theme of the patterns that I made a couple of weeks ago. This time it is spring, represented by sweet first flowers and autumn with red and gold leaves.
Both patterns are free for download and very easy to make. Choose any colors you like!

This is the third pattern that is based on the works of the great Japanese ukiyo-e master Katsushika Hokusai. But today I chose not the Fuji mountain view, but rather a beautiful still life picture of yellow lilies.
The pattern is not too big, and uses a very limited amount of colos, as well as only full cross stitches (no back stitches), so you can try to work with it even if you are not too experienced. 🙂

Today I made two nice and easy bookmark patterns: one with sweet violet flowers and the other with blue snowflakes. And it somehow dawned it me as I was writing that post, that next time I should do Autumn and Spring bookmarks to go with today’s Summer and Winter. 🙂
Each of the patterns is very simple. Choose any color you like! 🙂 Continue reading “Bookmark patterns: snowflakes and flowers”
