Hello.... I'm back again for stitching Sunday's. I've had to put my Summerhouse sampler on hold for a bit as the monitor on the desktop PC has blown, so I've been unable to print of the motif I'm planning on using.
So instead earlier in the week I decided to have a go at this cute little cross stitch, that came free with 'Mollie Makes' magazine in August. When I got the magazine I thought this sweet little Rose looked kind of familiar, it wasn't till I read the magazine that I realised it's because the design is by 'Eline Pellinkhof'
and I have a copy of her fab book 'Stitch and Sew home,' It a small world.
I've never really done any cross stitch before, but I was keen to give this make a go as it's sooooo sweet. Roses Ribbons and Lace what's not to love.
I found the following a pattern quite a challenge, as concentration and counting are not two of my strong points living with a ME/Lyme brain, so I have the feeling my Rose might not look exactly like the one in the photo, but I'm having fun all the same, with the very pretty coloured flosses.
First the Red, then onto the pinks.
I'm not normally a fan of red and pink together but I think it works perfectly on this darling little Rose. It's taken me quite a while, doing a little at a time but this is where I'm up to.
Eek here's a closer look at the stitching,
which is a bit gappy but it's my first attempt so hey hoo.
Well that's all for today, just before I go I wanted to wish my UK readers safe passage through the storm that is supposed to be hitting overnight Sunday/Monday Here's hoping it's not as bad as is being predicted. 'P' has spent the day putting away the garden furniture and mini greenhouse, making sure everything is put away or lashed down in the garden. Although to tell the truth it's already been blowing a gale here for the last few days. Take care all.
