I'm skipping ahead to a future theme because I need something sweet now. It's been a rough week for too many reasons and now I've just read @fabricdepot
is closing. There's no place else like it. I have so many sweet memories of shopping there and making things. I'm sad like I was when Daisy Kingdom closed. I know my quilty IG friends will understand, as most communities have felt the sadness of lovely brick-and-mortar fabric store closures.
Most of the floss I use in these hexies was purchased at @fabricdepot.
Best wishes to all the employees.
Pattern by Aimee Ray.
This bouquet is a second piece after the first one was requested by two people. I made this one to resemble the first, with some changes and a modified colour palette! I just think these are SO cute!
Want one? This one is spoken for, but DM me to have a custom one made! They can be made in several sizes and with custom colours. 🌻
Throwback to: September 2014 and my full-colour Variation of Just Nan's Autumn "Harmony" 🍂 "Harmony" is a gorgeous monochromatic Four Season sampler that I was lucky enough to win in a Giveaway. It was originally intended to be completely stitched in just one colour of Autumnal variegated floss but I loved all the little motifs so much that I added colour to bring them out 🐿🦉🎃 It was difficult to imagine how this project would look with my changes as I stitched it, and I made a lot of silly mistakes. But I love the way it turned out in the end 😃
Full project information, including a chart for the colour substitutions I made, is still available on my blog, Eglantine Stitchery (link in bio):

I also added tons of sparkle with Mill Hill beads! I've never used so many different colours and finishes together in one project, but it was so fun that I'll definitely try to mix it up again!!!
Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year; not Hallowe'en, but early Fall when the leaves start to turn and the air is crisp and cool. What about you? Do you have a favourite Season?

Mutlu huzurlu iyi akşamlar ❣️
Finished this wreath up, I do love how it turned out even if it ended up being harder than it needed to be. I had sketched the wreath out on my fabric but some how the lines disappeared making it so much fun to guess where they were! Whoops!

I started a new 'break project' last night... I've been meaning to learn to embroider for ages, but have never progressed beyond basic chain and blanket stitch, so I pulled out a few embroidery threads, a small piece of lovely white linen I bought at a charity shop years ago, and purchased the '120 Embroidery Stitches' eBook by the super talented Kelly Fletcher of @kfneedlework
... all printed so I can take it with me and work on it when I go away for a crafting retreat over a long weekend soon :) I'm hoping to use all 120 stitches in this random practice piece and am ticking them off as I go. My favourite so far is the cable stitch - looks like a metal chain ❤
Getting close to completing the punching portion of one of my new needle hobbies. This is called #punchneedle
embroidery and it is so much fun! Pattern is by Threads that Bind using #dmcfloss

Well this week I have been kind on myself because the black dogs been a bit of a shit. My goal for this week was to finish the lettering at the top of this page and I’m so happy I’ve started on the picture of Sirius Black. At the minute you can only see the tip of his hair but this section seems to be going a lot faster than the words. I’ve got a lot better recently at noticing when I need to give myself some space where I don’t feel guilty about not doing anything and just stitching or crafting on what I want to. #crossstitch #mentalhealth #depression #crossstitchersofinstagram #xstitch #embroidery #dmcfloss #harrypotter
