Fantasy SAL Mermaid

Her magical song captures your attention. You look over to see an enchanting mermaid basking in the sunlight as she plays with her treasures she has found from the depths of the ocean. She has seen and collected objects from shipwrecks that you can't even imagine ever existed, just like her.

If you want to capture her beauty in cross stitch threads and beads head on over to my Facebook Group to join in on the Free Fantasy SAL going on right now. You won't want to miss it!

Fantasy Collection

Free with print edition of Cross Stitch Crazy issue 212 is this fantasy collection of 50 cross stitch designs from 4 designers. I designed some witches and wizards and some small magical motifs for the freebie booklet!

Included in the booklet is coordinating paper to create some magical cards to send to loved ones for all kinds of occasions or just to say you're thinking of them.

Vintage Merry and Bright

Bright colours, inspired by the non traditional vintage Christmas cards from decades ago, are used in this cross stitch pattern.

Also used in this design are some sparkly beads and Kreinik #4 braid to add some shimmer to the design. I highly recommend using an even weave linen for this cross stitch pattern as there are a good amount of quarter stitches in the Christmas baubles.
