As my regular readers know, I try to stitch on some small projects throughout the year so that I have a little stash of Xmas decorations ready by the end of the year. I also like to make use of FREEs that are generously offered on the internet, and am always ready to try something new ^^
That little intro to say that I’ve bought a new pair of pinking shears, and finished off a few small designs I stitched this Spring. Design is by Clarelis
And then I stitched another blackwork freebie by Wyrd Byrd
One version in red, and one in black . . . because I wanted to try something she suggested on her blog.
She suggested using colouring pencils to colour in parts of the design, so I decided to give it a go. I think it looks very pretty and makes the design really come to life. What do you think?
