Here's a free large-scale pattern of a pretty lotus flower mandala. The design uses whole cross stitches only, warm lilac tones and plenty of detail to enjoy stitching. I recommend 16 count Aida for this project.
Get into the spirit (heh) of Halloween with this free pattern. Stitch on your favourite fabric and enjoy the bright jewel colours and spooky motifs. There's a kit version of this pattern available in the shop.
Here's a matching cross stitch chart to go with the previous pastries design. Stitch it on the same fabric you choose for the pastries and break down the backstitch by completing one or a few coffees at a time.
It's small and sweet - here's a free cross stitch chart for your weekend. A selection of pastries to stitch on your favourite fabric count. Break up working the backstitch by doing a little at a time as each pastry is worked.
