Miniature trees – finished!

OK, the project is not finished yet, because the idea is to make a postcard. But the stitching is complete, and looks like this:

Mini trees postcard stitching

Right now I understand that I should have placed something on the photos for size reference. The actual stitching is very small, about 9 cm in height (3.5 ”) and 8 in length (3.2 ”).

For my next step I have to find a postcard blank and mount the stitching in. Hopefully the result will be as pretty as I imagine it 🙂

Tuesday freebie: a folk-style flower

Today’s free pattern is a simple folk-style flower that is adapted from a vintage painting that I found on Pinterest.  The size of the pattern makes it great to use for a 10 x 15 cm postcard (4 ” x 6 ”).

I loved that flower so much, that instantly srated incorporating it into a bigger sampler design 🙂

Enjoy your stitching!

St Patrick’s March 17 Vintage Postcard pattern

Today’s free pattern is a vintage St Patrick’s Day postcard, turned into a cross stitch chart. Due to the loads of text it is a bit bigger than I expected it to be, but should be very easy to stitch.
