Summer 2010 a New Free Chart


I hope that you enjoy this new chart just for summer. It should stitch up pretty fast and would be great as a take along project while your out an about and have some free time on your hands.

New chart release, The White Dress

Here is my newest chart, The White Dress. It's the largest pattern I've designed so far and was a challenge to stitch up. This is because I chose to use only a basic cross stitch. I wanted to see how the large areas of the dresses and arm rest looked as one flat surface. This however was extremely boring to stitch!

I think it would be interesting to stitch the dresses in a fancy stitch of some sort, giving the overall texture of the piece more variety.
The early 19th century is one of my favorite periods, particularly early American art and photography. This painting of a mother and daughter was the inspiration for this design.
