Cross Stitch Inspiration Roundup

Free alphabet pattern on Live Love SewWe’re back to our old friend cross stitch for inspiration this week!

This lovely alphabet is a free pattern offered on Live Love Sew – I absolutely love the delicate palette of DMC threads that Keera has chosen – it looks gorgeous on a linen background, as you see here in her photo.

It would be wonderful to stitch in a mini-hoop, as she has done – for an ornament or baby gift.


Lavender girl free pattern on The Snowflower DiariesThis gorgeous Lavender Girl is a free pattern on The Snowflower Diaries, and the chart lists all the DMC threads you’ll need. Designer Maja has created many beautiful small cross-stitch patterns – be sure to check them all out!

I love the way Maja has incorporated clusters of beads into this pattern – the color she’s chosen looks like clusters of ripe grapes – lovely!


St Stephens Day pattern on Shakespeare's Peddler This beautiful pattern is being offered to benefit a special cause on Shakespeare’s Peddler.

Created around the theme of St. Stephen’s Day, Theresa is providing this pattern on her blog, with the request that a donation of any amount be made to the Southern Pines Animal Shelter. To read more about the shelter and this cause, visit the blog.

What a lovely way to support a cause with your stitching!


Arabella Graves sampler on The Traveling Stitcher Another inspiring sampler pattern is this historical work on The Traveling Stitcher, which is feature in the Attic Needlework August newsletter.

The color palette is lovely – a variety of gorgeous muted shades in DMC threads. For more information on this pattern, visit the newsletter.
