Garden Sal

Garden Sal by Durene Jones freebie pattern is ready now. I enjoyed every stitch as always, stitching Durene’s project. There is a birdhouse, a lot of birds and butterflies here. What is more, a bee, a hive and lots of flowers, hare and hedgehog, a garden gnome and mushroom…and a lot of sweet details. I used DMC thread by Durene’s key and Murano beige evenweave 32 count.

 

Review

We are glad to share one more 5 stars review at our Etsy shop Stitchersland. The shop is young, we started it last year in December and every review is very important to us. What is more, our happy customer sent us a photo of stitched Barn Owl by our pattern.

Garden Sal

A few weeks ago Durene Jones published new Garden Sal as her weekly Friday freebie. Of course, I took part in it. This is the result of my work. There are the part of a border ( I hate stitch all the border straight away) and two parts – a birdhouse with a pink bird and three butterflies, and a beehive with sweet bee and flowers.

I used my favourite Murano evenweave 32 count and DMC thread for this stitching.

 

Woodland Sal

Some time ago I started new cross stitch Sal from Kate by Durene Jones pattern. I ordered a pattern and a fabric because it was specially designed and dyed for this Sal. The first was Barn Owl, the second – Rabbit.

Then I stitched Weasel and Stag.

Unfortunately, then I took a break in stitching this Sal, because I decided to complete East Asian Inspirations Sal. So after the break, I came back to Woodland Sal and stitched next parties, not in the order: they are Badger and Deer.

Next was Frog, the central part and all the Sal looks like this way:

Two last parts I’ve stitched are these: Squirrel and Harvest Mice.

Now I can’t wait the next parts appear and we are discussing in our stitching group what they will be – Fox, Wolf, Hedgehog, or some more nice woodland animals. There will be three more animals here, so to be continued 🙂

Hamster Cross Stitch Pattern from Slavic Horoscope Series

The next our Slavic Horoscope animal is Hamster – some of the most loved pets.

The hamster – a creature that sleeps almost nine months a year, but the rest develops a frantic activity, having time to gather bread from the fields and stuff the storerooms to the ceilings.
The Hamster Man is able to work day and night without rest, hastily sip hot coffee and go back to work. On days like these, he can make as much as the Ants-born does in a month. But then the Hamster, exhaled, falls with his tongue sticking out and comes to his senses for a long time, and the Ant works, works, works, and when it comes time to compare the results, it is still unknown who has more time!
Hamsters are loved for their unabashed character, slowness and kindness. They love to rest and they know how to do it, even if the rest – is just lying on the grass in the sun.

For every cross stitcher or embroiderer, the term “hamster” has a special meaning – it makes us “to hamster” our supplies so that we never run out of threads, fabrics, needles, special scissors, kits and other things we need for developing our hobby.
