I have always loved making things. from creating fairy banquets and furniture to books about days out, I've tried my hand at almost every creative activity. not all of them have come to anything, but I can safely say that stitching has been my one true love.
I've been cross stitching for about six years now, and dabbled in other embroidery during that time. recently though, since coming across the lovely Bustle and Sew (http://bustleandsew.com/) I've started embroidering earnestly.
for my blog I'm going to do a feature post each Saturday where I show my finished projects for that week :) I'd love to see yours too!
so, here are my newest finishes;
this embroidery is from Bustle and Sew (http://bustleandsew.com/) I've changed the colours and added a bumblebee in the centre (there is a monogram on the original pattern) I adore bees, and my family call me 'holly bee', so I thought adding a little bee would be sweet.
I'm not entirely sure what i'll make this up into however...any ideas?
this cross stitch pattern from April Rose Illustration (http://aprilroseillustration.com/) was in an issue of Cross Stitch Crazy a few months ago. I love wildflowers and old seed packets, so this was a must-stitch for me. I altered some colours, half stitched the background instead of whole stitches, and added seed beads.
so that's my finishes for the week, no doubt there'll be some more soon!
