This post is doubly amazing, as it is a) a photo of my pattern coming to life and b) a reminder about my wonderful Singapore vacation. Or rather all of my Singapore vacations, as it is one of the cities that I love to come back to.

And – just for the fun of it – a photo of me and my husband during the Singapore National Day holidays visiting the newly opened Cat museum 🙂
Today’s free rune is Berkana (sometimes spelled Berkano) – a rune of feminine fertility, birth (rebirth) and motherhood – and rune #20 in my cross stitch runic series.

Please note, that this pattern is a little bit (two stitches) wider than most of the runic patterns of the same design. I had to make it like this because the rune’s neame is longer 🙂
The symbolic tree for Berkana on the pattern is pomegranate.
Welcome! Today’s free pattern is a beautiful dark red rose adapted from a vintage botanical painting. As states the poll in the right sidebar, flowers are the most popular design among my readers, so I hope you will enjoy this one!

Hello dear readers, and sorry for being away for several days. September began swiftly and brought lots of different projects into my life, including a stitchy square for Stitching out Stigma, an ornament for Christmas ornament exchange, a job offer, and an unexpected journey (yup, I feel almost like a Hobbit. Legs, too :)). On top of that me and my husband are trying to sell the current apartament and buy a new one. But I am still here, and so are the usual freebies. If there are any GTA fans out there, they will definitely like it!
Wasted (GTA inspired) mini cross stitch pattern
A simple mini project, that can be stitched in a night with only three colors (two, if you skip the background). And what a powerful message! 🙂 Any GTA video game fan knows that line.

To tell you the truth, I didn’t expect to make a ladybird for today’s freebie. I was going to make another runis pattern, like last week, but stumbled upon this amazing felt craft image on Pinterest:

And here is what appeared miraculously in my Pattern Maker: a chibi kawaii-style girl in a ladybird costume. The pattern is small and extremely easy, it can be stitched by kids or beginners. It can also be used to make a postcard or on a pincushion.

I guess the title says it all 🙂 Today’s freebie is an adaptation of a vintage poster promoting healthy food, namely apples and grapes. The image and lettering in it are a great example of negative space.
The pattern is dextremely easy: three colors only. Use off-white or cream canvas for more authentic vintage look.

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!
