New Patterns !
Acrylic Pour 30
Yeah ! Two new patterns today:) Acrylic Pour 30 and Blocks and Border 3. Acrylic Pour 30 is what I think of as a ‘heavy duty’ cross stitch pattern. ‘Heavy Duty’ from the point of view of the number of colours in the pattern. In this design, there are 79 different DMC thread colours used. Having said that, all the stitches in this design are full cross stitches, no partial stitches and no backstitch. So, from that point of view, it is fairly straight forward. Additionally, via the sheer nature of the design, if you do use the wrong thread colour here and there, are the ‘Cross Stitch Police’ really going to notice it. I certainly wouldn’t :). Cross stitch is meant to be a relaxing and fun interest, so please, enjoy the process and don’t beat yourself up about a few stitches worked in the wrong colour. This pattern is available for immediate download on confimraiton of purchase from my Etsy store here. With your purchase you wil alos received clear and concise cross stitch instrctions.
Blocks and Borders 3
Blocks and Borders 3 in the third pattern in my Blocks and Borders series. The first two patterns in this series featured 3 cross stitch ‘borders’ and two blackwork ‘borders’ with a blackwork border to tie it all together. The third and fourth patterns in the series feature 3 blackwork ‘borders’ and two cross stitch ‘borders’ with a cross stitch border to tie it all together. This pattern features interesting geometric pattern cross stitch ‘borders’ utilising fractional stitches along with backstitch to define the overall patterns. The cross stitch ‘borders’ alternate with detailed blackwork borders. This is all tied together with a simple but interesting geometric cross stitch border. This patterns is available for immediate download on my Etsy shop here. You will also received cross stitch and blackwork instructions with your download.
Organisation and Geometrics
Does being organised and a love of geometrics go hand in hand? I often ask myself that question. To me, ‘Yes’ seems to be the obvious answer, but maybe that’s just me.
I am, by nature, very organised. With that said, it doesn’t take too much of a stretch to tie that side of my nature in with ‘geometrics’. When I say ‘geometrics’, I am thinking of geometrics from a creative point of view. As an example, my Tangled Line Art designs are all based on geometrics – to be more precise, the geometrics of traditional patchwork and quilting blocks. I love, love, love Patchwork and Quilting and will be adding Patchwork and Quilting to this website in the coming months. The format that will take is still a ‘work in progress’ at the moment:) Adittionally, I have alse recently publidhed 2 adult colouring books based on geometric patterns. These are available as digital downloads from my With Fabric and Threads Etsy shop here or my Tangled LIne Art Etsy shop here. If you would prefer a hard copy, these books are also available on Amazon.
