Thankful for Fiber Art

The holidays are here once again, and it’s a great time to cozy in with the family, enjoy a little time off of school and work, and get busy cross-stitchin’! With all the classic holiday movies about to start up on television, what better way to relive those old favorites than with a Thanksgiving themed cross-stitch pattern?

Here are some that I have made. They can all be found under the holiday section of my Bella Stitchery Design shop on Etsy.

It’s a Swedish Thing

Love the thick satin embroidery over the dark red cloth.

My new obsession – Swedish embroidery.

Love the color. Love the flowers. Love the style.

What is it? It’s rich – full of life and character. It’s a feeling.

Friday Freebie – Peach and Pink Roses Cross Stitch Pattern

TGIF!

Hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind pattern. It is based on a photo of rich pink and peach roses. This tapestry would go beautifully in a country or shabby chic style home.
