Hello everyone,

This is another request from a friend of mine. She wanted to sew a little dump truck for her little boys bedroom. We found a perfect pattern in a magazine but alas it was just a little bit too small

For another border design heres a link:

Jesters hat small card sized cross stitch design

Colour Anchor Thread numbers
Yellow 298
Red 1098
Blue 142
Green 228

Hello everyone,
Today I'd like to share a nice colourful design of a Jesters hat. This design is sized for a card but could make a cute motif for a number of purposes. Why not pair it with other small colourful designs for a kids room? 

Feel free to mix up the thread numbers to use up any scraps you have since this design would be sewn in any colour and still look nice.

Hello everyone,

I hope you all like spaceships, I got an urge to draw yet another spaceship. I should probably rename the next month vehicles month and just run with all of the ideas for designs I've had which are to to with vehicles. To be frankly honest this week my drawing challenge was the statue of Liberty so after lots of research and at least 5 attempts I ended up closing my cross stitch program in a rage (without saving) one cup of tea later I then decided to draw something a little easier. 

This design is for people like my friend who likes to fill in between the lines. She tells me after a long day filling in large blocks of the same colour is relaxing (like colouring in) and she doesn't have to worry about checking with the chart, and just stitch away while watching a TV show before bed and keeping an ear out for the baby monitor. 

Anyway Much love and happy stitching

Hello everyone,
This week I decided to let my friend challenge me to draw a cross stitch design. So the challenge was

'Draw the thing you thought of first in the morning'

Well naturally the thing I think of first is coffee, closely followed by plans to destroy my alarm clock. So here is the result of the challenge a cute cup of coffee to help me start each day. This stitch could be a nice card or a little decoration for an apron. :)

Much love and happy stitching

Hello everyone,

The clocks have just changed meaning it is now getting well on its way towards summer, the dark days of winter are behind us now. It'll soon be time for nice walks on the beach and lovely Barbeques with friends.

So today I thought I would share a bright and happy design to wish all of my readers a nice day. It can be stitched to cheer a friend or to put on the wall to remind you to have a nice day. Don't forget you can change up the threads to use all of your favorite colours so that it is guaranteed to make you smile as you stitch with all your favorite colours on one design.

Much love and happy stitching xx

Hello everyone,

Today I was considering getting out the bunnys and cute chicks but really wanted to draw something quite dynamic before getting stuck into cute Easter cross stitches.
So heres a space ship blasting off into space. This design looks like its on a cloth badge as if it could be sewn onto the jumpsuit of a space explorer.
This design could be a nice bright addition to the bedroom of a kid who is mad about space, perhaps sewn on to a cushion so they can dream of space adventures every night. I'd quite like to see this on the back of a jacket. I wonder if it will look good on my denim jacket?

Love in fancy lettering cross stitch design

Love in fancy lettering cross stitch design



Colour Anchor Thread numbers DMC thread numbers
Red 334 606


Hello everyone,

Here's another simple single colour design which uses whole stitches only. This colour choice is just a suggestion since love is commonly associated with nice shades of red but this one wold work well in your favorite shade of pink or practically any colour thread you'd like to use.

I designed this to be something quick to whip up for a large card - Mothers day is coming up this week after all! Who is still stitching their Mothers day card and may be stitching until midnight if you aren't already on your way to finishing the card? Luckily I'm already finished so I'm not rushing for the post like I did last year.

This would also make quite a striking Valentines day card even though I posted this just a little too late for Valentines this year maybe someone will find this post in time for next year
