In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a cat lover. Even worse, I’m the kind of girl that shouts “Hey kitty-kitty” and tries to make friends with every cat in sight… Anyway, here are some of my newest cat designs!

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 ”).

Busy Bee alphabet sampler (cross stitch)

Have you noticed, that there is a new sub-category in the Patterns section of the blog? It’s called Alphabets, and if I started it, I should as well populate it 🙂 So here is a nice and simple alphabet in black and yellow, with some busy bees flying around the letters. The yellow patches on the letters represent honeycombs.

You can stitch it as a sampler, or use any letters (and bees) separately to make names or quotes.

Colors: black, yellow. Stitches used: full cross stitches, back stitches (bee wings)

Klingon cross stitch sampler

A perfectly normal sampler except that it has Klingon pIqaD alphabet and numbers 🙂

I have to admit that I haven’t seen much of the original Star Trek series. But I bumped accidentally into Wikipedia article on Klingon language and was quite amazed how much effort was built into developing the Star Trek universe in whole and Klingon part of it in particular. As a lover of different languages and cultures I knew I should make something like this.
