Progress on my robot embroidery

I can never get flesh coloured floss to look right once stitched!!

Free Robot Embroidery Pattern

My free robot embroidery pattern styled on Lost In Space!
I have already started stitching it up but the woman's body looks terrible!!

Highland Cow Embroidery Pattern

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.


Darwin T-Shirt

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!!

Plastic Bag embroidery pattern

176, originally uploaded by lucy rose.

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.

Rocket Boy!

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!!

Two Weeks Off!

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!!!
