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.
I stitched a lot of Lucie Heaton www.lucieheaton.com mice, but this is one of my favourite.
Next project by Serafima Abramova Sal “Summer Mouse”. I stitched it on white 14 count Aida, using DMC thread. A bit complicated : 105 x 75 stitches, 22 thread colours plus their blends. Techniques: the whole cross stitch, half cross stitch, petit point cross stitch and back stitch. I enjoyed stitching this lovely creature, but frog visited me almost all the time. Maybe because I was the number 13 in this Sal 🙂
