Here's the latest progress on my Summer Kitten stitching.
I've had to put the kitten to one side for the moment as I'm working on two commissioned designs for a craft magazine. I finished the designing and am now stitching. I also managed to fit in the production of a new mini cushion kit this week. This one is titled 'Forget-me-nots' and was inspired by some victorian wallpaper patterns that I saw in a magazine. There is a lot of detail in such a small space in this design, but it is a fun one to stitch as I find there is a sense of achievement after completing each patterned 'block'.
Inbetween my stitching in the coming week I'm going to be working on a wedding picture - but not in cross stitch. This one is more of a collage piece using pieces of fabric, buttons and handmade padded bride and groom dolls. It is part of my new business which will be going live in a month or two - handcrafted personalised artworks.
And I've also made a start on my new 'Flowers of the month' range of mini cushions. I have one and a half designed so far - not sure when the stitching will start though!
