It is a stitcher’s tradition to start a new project for the new year. For my New Year’s Day project, I chose this absolutely adorable pattern by Seba Designs. There are charts for three window scenes, and I’ve finished the first one so far:
These cute patterns are a mix of cross-stitch and blackwork. I especially love the lacy curtain, and the bicycle plant stand is charming.
I have used completely different colours than what the pattern calls for, of course! I had a bit of a lovely variegated gold silk floss, from Silks4U that I used for the window frame, and for the lace curtain I used a gorgeous pink and yellow cotton floss called Jaffa by Dinky Dyes, also from Silks4U. The plant pots were stitched in a variegated DMC floss, a blend of browns and rusts, and the leaves in variegated greens.
