New Cross Stitch Finishes!


I have lots of sewing and other things to do, but lately I got the cross stitch bug.
Three finishes is a LOT for me. So, here they are!

Three spring finishes!  I love these designs.  I wanted to stitch something that could be on display all Spring long, not only during Easter. So, these are the ones I picked.

This cute gardening girl is a design by Perrette Samouiloff. You can find many of her designs here.
You buy the patterns to print from your computer. Very nice and  quite affordable.

These two ornaments are from JBW designs. I love her patterns! They are easy but so beautiful.
The French Country Lamb and French Country Rabbit were on my list for a while. I finally stitched them.

I had a hard time deciding how to finish the JBW designs ornaments. I left very little fabric around the rabbit, but I was able to finish it as a flat, like the lamb. It was my first time finishing with cord.
The little girl was easy. I wanted to finish her as a pillow with that fabric since the beginning.
I used 14 count aida for all three, because I have a lot of it, and also because my eyes are getting old :)

For now I am displaying them like this. I will probably change things around next week when I start decorating for Easter.
Thank you for stoping by, and have a great week!

  1. Oh, they are so darling, Ana Paula! I love JBW designs, too--it's always such fun to hunt for the little motifs within the design... They look wonderful arranged in your cubby. I'm envious of your outdoor greenery--we are still snow-covered here, but it is slowly melting :)

  2. I do love the fabric you chose for the little girl, very pretty. And she is nice enough you could leave her out till summer, especially with the green fabric.
