Tuesday freebie: a folk-style flower

Primitive folk flower pattern

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)

Busy Bee free cross stitch alphabet sampler

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)

Более того, в мире есть люди, которые могут на нем разговаривать! Continue reading “Klingon cross stitch sampler”

Happy Easter cross stitch sampler

Inspired by all beautiful samplers on Pinterest: “Happy Easter” sampler (maybe not exactly a sampler, but something very similar) with easter eggs, chickens and tulips. I made it in red, but it can be embroidered with any color you like.

I never did samplers before, this one is the very first and I hope you will like it!
