Forget Me Not

Hello!
In April I started some pieces that I was not liking because I couldn’t concentrate on them…
Not really knowing what to stitch on during lockdown I decided to revisit all my cross stitch patterns.
I did find four that called my attention. Two I already showed on my blog, the ABC freebie and the Blackbird Designs piece called All Joys for Thine, and this one is the other lucky one that I picked up. The other piece is an old work in progress by Gigi R….

A lovely selection of colours and some pretty motifs.

I love cherries! I enjoyed so much stitch them!

Design by MidSummer Night Designs – Forget Me Not.
Stitched on 38 count Dalarna Zweigart linen that I coffee dyed. I did used the call for threads: DMC, Gentle Arts and Crescent Colours now called Classic Colorworks.

Thanks for visiting! Happy stitching!

Sampler Of The Season: Spring

Hello!
I stitched this sampler last year on and off and finish it last September.
It is very pretty, but my favourite for now is the Autumn sampler.
I just need to stitch the others two seasons… I will keep Winter till the end, since Winter is my favourite season.

A shepherdess with her sheep and dog…

A small red house and a lost sheep…

I did have some “problems” with dyed lots on the grass… for me it looks more rustic…

Some elements of the sampler were really fun to stitch!
