It’s another two-for-one pattern pick here on the blog today, because these are too cute to not have them be together. Tiny twist on the usual though; the apron is cross stitch and the hand towels are embroidery.
You might have noticed a theme going on this week with all the bees 😉 Here’s a bee themed quaker pattern from AuryTm.
I love the pure simplicity.

Model stitched on 28 Ct. Moonglow Cashel linen with DMC floss (3371 and 783) and Rainbow Gallery fibers (FX23 and W99). Stitch count of 101W x 140H.

It’s a two-for-one pattern pick today, because these two patterns from Lila’s Studio are the perfect companions to each other.
Both project models are stitched on a 40 count fabric in the color “Mello” by Picture This Plus using Weeks Dye Works threads, but DMC alternatives are listed. Save the Bees has a stitch count of 167w x 166h and Bee Sampler is 188w x 84h.
Welcome to June!
Stitch count is 48 wide x 143 tall. The model is stitched on 28 Ct. Blue Jean over-dyed gingham linen with Gentle Art Sampler Threads (GAST), and the design also uses a button pack (#A-9055) from the designer.
GAST colors used are Carriage Black, Faded Rose, Green Apple, Roasted Marshmallow, Tradewind, and Wheat Fields.
The roses that you see standing out a bit are made with Crescent Colours Bamboo Chenille. All specialty stitches are illustrated.
Over the past week or so I’ve seen lots of of my stitchy friends posting pictures of their kids and grandkids learning to stitch, working on their first project, and even a few that are on their second or third project. I love it!
My boys all know how to stitch, but none of them kept interest in it long enough to complete a project. Honestly, I think they just wanted to play with my threads and scissors without me making angry faces.
Anyway, hedgehogs make me smile and I like that this little beginner project is appropriate for just about anyone, it’s not so adolescent that an adult wouldn’t want to stitch it (I want to stitch it, he’s cute) and it’s not so grown up that a child wouldn’t be interested.
Enjoy & happy stitching! 🙂
This fun winter design is available at 123stitch.com and directly from Ink Circles.
I love all the Ink Circles mandala designs, but I chose this as today’s pick of the day because I very much like how it’s wintery and fun but still holiday appropriate.
Model is stitched n 28 Ct. Crystal Herald Belfast linen by Picture this Plus using Snow White DMC (#B5200).
Stitch count 115×115.
I don’t know what it is about roosters that make people go crazy and buy all the things for the kitchen, but here we are with another rooster pattern and it’s sitting in my shopping cart because I think it would make a great gift for a friend whose kitchen is full of rooster-themed decor…

I know you’re probably tired of hearing me say it, but Mill Hill has really been impressive the past year. Not that they weren’t before, but their latest releases have had me hitting the buy button a lot more. The Autumn 2015 releases were no exception and the Sugar Skull kit landed in my Amazon cart immediately…
If you haven't taken the plunge from aida fabric to evenweave fabric, now is the time to do so.
Expand your project options and enjoy something new.
