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.

For all my nerdy readers and friends, here is a pattern I promised to make a loooong time ago. It is a adaptation of the logo of Skyrim, an amazing game by Bethesda softworks. I had a lot of fun hours, wathing my husband play it (and interfering all the time 😉 ).
This pattern is in black color only, but if you would like a rendition of the classical logo, just give me a shout in comments 🙂

Based on an free image from the web, this arabesque pattern is very simple and can be done in only one color or in different colors of your choice. I really like the art-nouveau feeling of the ornament in this one 🙂

Once again – a bookmark based on Hayao Miyazaki‘s character (following Totoro bookmark made last week). Today it is the black cat Jiji from the animated movie “Kiki’s delivery service”, that tells the story of a young wanna-be witch Kiki, who earns her living making deliveries by broomstick.

Hey all 🙂 I remember having promised to make some Meditteranean charts, but today it will be something quite different. While browsing Pinterest I ran into that iconic phrase from Harry Potter:
“After all this time?”
It’s one of the best parts of the whole series, and one of the most magnificent love stories in it. So I decided to make my own little tribute to Severus Snape and his feelings for Lily Potter.
Always – free Harry Potter cross stitch pattern
Pattern size: 83 x 84 stitches, 4 colors (you can use black instead of green, which is used only for doe’s eyes)

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

This week I wanted to make a rune, then switched to making a pattern with some more vintage roses, but was not not in the mood to finish both. So here is one more vintage-inspired pattern, but this time it’s a bit more recent than Victorian flowers. This pattern is made from a picture of a pin-up girl I found on the Internet some time ago. Not sure why I liked it so much 🙂
