bad week!

I've been having a bit of a crap time lately and lacking any other ways to express it I've done it in stitch! I would hope my followers won't be offended by a bit of light hearted rudeness but if you are then consider this your warning ;)

I loved designing this little chart, really cheered me up, I've used just one colour of DMC floss to stitch it and I used 25ct Lugana in Ice Blue due to the backstitch detail, I've made it up as a little hanging pillow finished with buttons and ribbon.

The pattern is available to purchase at my Etsy Shop

Axolotl Embroidery

I've been working hard on this piece, making the pattern then stitching it over the past few days. I love Axolotls, they're so cute and smiley and I enjoyed every stitch of this one. The thing I love about embroidery is that there's no restrictions on the fabric or floss you can use so every piece can look very individual.

I stitched the design on some lovely printed fabric that kind of reminded me of bubbles and underwater, I used Dragon Floss Stashaholics for the outline and DMC 4215 for the frondy things (I really should find out the scientific name for those!)

I used chain stitch for the main outline and backstitch and bullion stitch on the frondy things.

The pattern is available to buy at my etsy store :)

Anyway enough rambling, here's some piccies:

Blue Rose Fairy Update

I've been working hard on this one over the past couple of weeks, I'm really enjoying seeing the detail begin to come into it and although I get frustrated with the confetti at times the detail looks so great I can't wait to carry on!

Should be back for another update soon!
