New Happenings




Counted cross stitch pattern
 " Floral for a Friend"


Counted cross stitch pattern
 " Last Harvest"

Punch Needle pattern
"Beauty and the Beast"

Good Monday morning to everyone. 
We are now about halfway through the year, Wow really? I'm not sure where it went...
I've been busy working on cross stitch models, it takes so much more time than punch needle. These old eyes need a magnifier and readers to see it but i'm finding it's very relaxing!

This morning I added two new listings to my Etsy shop. 
https://www.etsy.com/shop/briarcottage

The First is: 
"Floral for a Friend" counted cross stitch pattern
done on 32 count: Belfast Picture this plus Hand dyed linen. Color: Wren
Coded using DMC only.
1 over 2

The second:
A punch Needle pattern called:
"Beauty and the Beast"
can you guess who the Beauty is?
it measures 7" by 7" 
color coded using DMC only
3 strand punch.


If you have a chance do stop by the shop and take a look there are many patterns to choose from.
Wishing you all a wonder July, have fun, stay safe and as always,
 Happy needle-ing everyone! 

Ta Ta for now,
Kate

Just in time for the festival season, i've designed a pocket purse to accompany me to the up and coming festivals. Pittsburgh's art festival is coming next weekend always a must see....this pocket will come in handy.

measures 6 1/2" W by 9 1/2" H, 3 strand punch
