Projects in progress and a wonderful finish by Alyssa

Fish Pond stitched by Alyssa http://brownieschair.blogspot.com/

I am a slow stitcher, and to tell you the truth, I haven’t stitched most of the patterns I designed. That’s why it is always a pleasure to see how these virtual patterns become real projects in skilled hands. Today I want to share a picture of my Fish Pond pattern, stitched by Alyssa from Brownie’s Chair.

As for my own stitching, I had to stop working on Cats in the Kitchen (again!). It dawned at me that I should make something for my half-sister Katie’s wedding, so I made a pattern, bought all the supplies and have been stitching like crazy to make it on time.

It started out with a grid…

Summer days at the sea

A Day at the Sea cross stitch pattern #3

On my holidays I love going to the seaside! I love the feeling of sand under my feet, the bright colors, the seashells and even the salty smell (especially that). So here are three patterns that try to capture that mood, three, because stopping at one was practically impossible 🙂

A Day at the Sea (versions 1, 2, and 3)

Three blue doors cross stitch pattern

Three blue doors cross stitch pattern

Punk project challenge (week two, since I have effectively overslept the previous one) is to make a project using my favorite colors. And for me nothing represents my favorite color – blue – than the beautiful Mediterranean doors, deep blue on perfectly white walls. So today I made a big pattern using three images of such doors.

The pattern, as usual, is completely free to download (look for the link below the image).
