It's been a while since I started embroidery and here are some pictures of work in progress and finished work. Cross stitching is fun and making patterns with the technique has a lot more restriction than making print pattern but I enjoy it. The best part is to choose a colour combination of course! This stitch of a flower is inspired by the drawing on the left. Some samplers. Just keep practising :) This button above is made from the quick sketch below. I picked the colours and made it into a simple pattern. This one is from a sampler. I like the black. This is an Experiment of "multi-colour stripes within a pattern". I like the chunky feel of threads and all the different colours. This is a handmade pin cushion made of lambswool woven sampler I wove years ago and a tin can of French chocolate. If you make a pincushion like this, I heard it's better to make it with 100% wool because it controls the moisture and prevents needles from getting rusty.
