My last pattern of the day before I close up shop and cook dinner (marinated chicken mmm). This is based on a request from my best friend who loves Highland Cows and I found a sketch on an online (free) colouring page site. The pattern is so simple it would not take long to stitch up - as always please let me know if you do use my designs as I would love love love to see them.
Completed! It only took a couple of hours watching telly to complete this pattern and I think it looks rather fetching - link to my Flickr page where you can see a full picture of the t-shirt.
My first Sulky transfer pen arrived in the post this morning and I have tried it out on a pattern I have been dying to make - robot carrying woman - see above for pattern link!!

Taken from Lucy Rose's Line Drawings on Flickr this has to be one of my most favourite patterns - yet to be made. It would look perfect on a plain tote bag.
Check out Lucy's work for some of her other fab line drawing including tools and lighthouses - great stuff for unusual embroidery.
Found a new source of free embroidery patterns at Bees Knees Activities - lovely funky patterns that are relevant for boys and girls - of all ages!!
Following a long spell away from the Blog I have been recovering from foot surgery and have now been signed off work for two weeks!! So plenty of time to catch-up on all my crafty list of things to make.
Number 1: Badbird's Bigfoot Embroidery Sampler for my Husband birthday present. I have brought him a lovely oak picture frame and hopefully (once complete) this will look perfect hanging in our Dining Room.
Number 2: Darwin Embroidery Pattern from Cyote Crafter
Number 3: Superman pattern from free, downloadable colouring book online - swoon he is my hero!!!

Ta Dah!! All done and dusted...well not literally dusted but certainly washed. This project took me a total of three evenings to complete, plus a little light lunchtime stitching, I have realised how much I love stitching things you can then wear it's pure vanity as more people get to see it and say if it looks nice - everyone likes compliments.
So here we are facing the weekend and I am without my next project, I do have a few patterns in the wings I could trace but it is my brother's birthday in April and I am minded to look for a blokie pattern I can stitch for him..............hmmm
