At The Beach at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is At The Beach.


I've stitched this image of Durdle Door for my father-in-law's birthday.  It's stiched 2 over 2 on 28 count evenweave using the recommended DMC threads.  The peel off sentiment is from my stash and I made the aperture card myself.



I'm quite pleased with how this turned out, it's not a brilliant picture but I've added some wadding behind the stitching so it really stands out.

I've stitched some sunflowers using a chart from Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards magazine.  I think you can't get much more summery than sunflowers!

Stitching at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Stitching, real or faux.


I've made this card using perforated paper.  The chart is from Spring Cross Stitch Favourites 2015 and is stiched 2 over 1 using the recommended DMC threads,  I like stitching on paper but you have to be careful how you carry threads so they don't show through on the back.

Masculine at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Masculine.


I made this card for my Dad using a pattern from Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards magazine.  It's stitched 2 over 1 on 14 count aida using the recommended DMC threads.  The paper, card and pearls are from my stash.  I liked this pattern as you could choose the elements to suit the recipient, my Dad likes beer and gardening and often mislays his glasses!
