3 D Cottage SAL

Today I’ve started a new project 3D Cottage SAL by Durene Jones pattern, I bougt on lakesideneedlecraft site.  The house is crocheting on a plastic canvas, which I had at home, threads as always DMC. So far only one photo from the very beginning, soon I will show the first part – cottage front. Durene Jones is one of my favourite designer, so I expecting a lot of fun and joy stitching this house.  This is the first 3 D project and I hope not the last one.

Furry Tales – Medieval Fun

A few weeks ago Kate Worthington  announced that together with dizainer Lucie Heaton organize free Sal, which they called Furry Tales – Medieval Fun. Every Friday the members of the group received a pattern and after 7 weeks I can show you the finished stitching. It was a pleasure to stitch these wonderful creatures in the Medieval style. Very funny and cheerful, no matter who they are – a King, a Quenn, a Princess, a Knight, a Wizard or a Jester – they evoke a smile on everyone’s face. Here are some pictures of the process. DMC threads, Iridescent Evenweave 32 count.

Taurus

In spring I embroidered Taurus painting from the Zodiac Signs series as a birthday present for my friend. I bought the diagram in the Etsy shop at Satsuma.  The pattern is very clear, colours are wonderful, I enjoy each cross. Probably the Taurus on a black canvas would look better, but I already have problems with my eyes, for this I sew on the white evenweave with DMC thread. This is the result.

This was my first attempt to place the embroidery in the hoop and I must say that I am very pleased with the result. I watched a lot of tutorials how to do it on youtube and here are a few more photos of the back of this embroidery. I used white fetr to hide the back side of embroidery (unfortunately, I haven’t got an ideal back side of my cross stitich).
