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. 

Pin cushion ピンクッション

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.

The other day, I got a roll of bleached cotton cloth so decided to make some tea towels with it. I sewed the both ends with decorative stitches and trimmed away the edges. All the edges have different colours and it imparts a cheerful air to the kitchen.

Lemon And Ash

I started colouring the circle pattern but don’t really like the colourway…

Cutting out and getting rid of the colour I don’t want in it.

Stuck pieces of yellow paper underneath.

I used several different shades of yellow and grey instead.

– and the mess!
