Woohoo! I made my deadline again. My two new patterns are now ready and waiting to go out into the world.
Merribelle’s Boot is my second blackwork design. Amazingly the stitching only took me two weeks. (But I have to confess after that it took me a while to get around to adding the beads and sequins and making it up.) This would make a great Christmas gift for that impossible to buy for person.
This is Lower Whilborough, my new Arts & Crafts style miniature carpet. The pattern includes keys to two alternate colour choices. Although I stitched it in colours close to those in the original 1900’s design that this was based on, I think I almost prefer the red background colour way.
