Hey everyone! Guess who had had enough free evenings (four, to be exact) to finish a tiny project for Valentine’s day? That’s me! Since my little boy decided to go to bed really early, at 6 pm (and to wake at 5 am, but that is another story), I finally have some time to spend on stuff I like 🙂 Luckily that small design doesn’t need much.
The pattern can be found in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/261506853/ . Be sure to use the coupon listed in shop’s description!
The colors are off, though, I could not find my stash because of moving from one flat to another, and just grabbed the available colors.
The stitching is mounted in a little wooden hoop.
Hope you were not troubled to much with my absence? Being utterly and completely pregnant, I had spent some months feeeling morning sickness just by looking at my laptop, set aside opening it 🙂 But hopefully I am through that period now – and back to stitching!
Mother’s Day is advancing on us, and Alexandra asked me to make a custom pattern for her Mom, featuring the phrase, Home is whre Mom is. She sent me a photo of her finished stitching, and it looks great, agree?
I totally love the way it turned out. Alexandra, thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
So if you, by any chance, stitched some of my patterns, don’t hesitate to send a photo – I would really enjoy seeing how they come to life, and sharing the photos with the rest of the world.
As I’ve decided not to start big projects until next year (this resolution does not stop me from bying more and more stuff for my stash though), the last weeks of 2015 will be marked with several small finishes.
Today it’s the Kawaii Vault dweller – nice, small, and very S.P.E.C.I.A.L

… stitch one of these two little funny patterns for the programmer in your life (even if it’s yourself!).
Me and my husband first visited US during the Christmas season. We rented a car and went all the way from NY via Boston and south to Key Largo. And every single day of our visit the car’s radio played the very same Christmas songs… I nearly hated them after three weeks of listening 🙂 But now these songs have a nostalgic feel.
As you can see, both designs are inspired by the famous “Let it snow” song.
One is very short and can be used to make a bookmark, while the other is longer and more elaborate.
The designs can be purchased in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/258543841/
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!

Today’s rune is Berkana (sometimes spelled Berkano) – a rune of fertility, birth (rebirth) and motherhood – and rune #20 in my cross stitch runic series.
Rune Berkana free cross stitch pattern
Pattern size: 38 x 49 stitches, 10 colors
Free for a limited time only – until March 2020
Please note, that due to the longer name of the rune this pattern is two stitches wider than most of the runic patterns of the same design.
The symbolic tree for Berkana on the pattern is pomegranate.
Happy Stitching! Continue reading “Rune Berkana cross stitch pattern”
OK, the project is not finished yet, because the idea is to make a postcard. But the stitching is complete, and looks like this:
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 🙂
Hey, Fallout fans out there! How do you like this one? For me this is by far the best Fallout pattern I’ve made. Just look at this cute Deathclaw! 🙂
Fallout Vault boy and monsters cross stitch pattern (You cannot fast travel when enemies are nearby)
The pattern can be purchased from Etsy. Enjoy!
Remember, I promised to complete the whole runic series by the end of summer? I hope you don’t remember that vow, because I’m seriously out of schedule with six more runes to go, and the summer is almost over. But still, as I just wrote, only six more runes to go: that means that 18 runes are adapted into patterns already, and that’s a lot!
Today I made (very true to season!) Jera rune.
Jera rune cross stitch pattern
Free for a limited time only – until Jan, 2020
Jera literally means “year” and “harvest”. In a more symbolic way it is a rune of success, of good and fruitful season coming to your life. It signifies a time to reap what you sow, and sometimes – a point where you should make that one last effort to reach your goal and achieve your prize. But enjoying your harvest, remember to plant seeds for the new spring: Jera teaches us future planning and time management.
