Last week in a Facebook group, I met a lady who designs cross-stitch patterns (hand stitch). She encouraged me to digitise and ...... it happened!!

I remembered that my software program has a cross-stitch ability which I have never tried before.

I designed my first machine cross-stitch design but was too scared to share it with you!

You know why?

Because, in my creative mind, it was not perfect enough....

I figured, why not share it for you to decide...

The crisp white and blue of my design were inspired by a recent visit to the most beautiful gardens in the Western Cape - called Babylonstoren. Their artwork is delft-inspired and I just loved it.

You don't have to follow my trend though because it will look great in any colour.  

The design is for a 5 x 7 hoop only and is available in the following formats:  ART / DST / EXP / HUS / PES / SEW / SHV / VIP / VP3 and XXX.

Where to add the design to:

​Embroider it on a tray cloth for your friend;

or

a special gift bag

or

repeat it in a border - the sky is the limit!​
