New Start


Can you tell this is going to be a horse? Hopefully it's starting to look like one. This is called "Taking It Easy" by Stoney Creek, in the book Majesty in Motion. I just love doing this piece. It is so detailed yet small enough to be fun. I've had to frog a little but that's why you do it across and don't let the left side get too far ahead of the right side. It's easier to see the mistake and frog it.

Does anyone know of any patterns of small crosses that can be done into Christmas Tree Ornaments? My brother e mailed me today and asked me if I would do about 8 crosses for their Christmas Tree. I have cross patterns but not that small.

Well this is a short post but not much is going on right now so until next time Happy Stitching!

I can see the horse taking shape - it'll be great.

It looks really cute so far! I've got that pattern in my stash - somewhere.
ASN has a pattern book called 'The Way of the Cross' that has some pretty little crosses in it. Here's the only online pic I could find of it:

It's on eBay, but I'm not selling it and I don't know the buyer. I just thought it might help to see the pics.

Yes it does look like a horse already. I was thinking that there might be some crosses in a Christmas motif book I have at home. I will try to look over this weekend.

You're off to a good start on this, I can see the horse taking shape. I'll enjoy seeing the rest of the horse develop. Sorry can't help on a small cross design.
