For a long time I wanted to try mixing felting and embroidery! Finally I had time this Sunday and here it is, my little experiment! It’s going to be a brooch for my friend who loves pavots!
This is great! I hope your friend likes it.
the stitches aren’t the best, but this is the first time I’ve ever done cross stitch, so it’ll get better as time goes by.
I think this looks great! I hope your hand feels better.
Since the weather was icy and miserable this weekend, I mostly stayed inside and cross stitched and watched tv. And I had a finish! Witchy Moon by The Primitive Hare. For this, I decided to use silk thread instead of the DMC colors and I think the ones I chose came pretty close to the original, although I had to make some changes. The light gray I picked out worked okay for the dress and the borders, but I think it might be too light for the lettering on the date in the middle. I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it or pick it out and redo it with the darker gray. I’m leaning towards leaving it, because I am lazy.
But I really love the pattern and think I will actually take it to my framer, as opposed to putting it in the box of stuff that may someday get framed.
Yay! This is great.

These are some of the other bookmarks that I’ve been able to stitch. I think I’m going to either whip stitch around the edges to make sure they don’t unravel or sew some fun fabrics to the back.
These are great!
