Scottish Thistle from Albion Gould

Sometimes little things pop up that are just a joy to discover. This lovely Scottish Thistle was one of those things for me. I was taking a break from working and looking around on Pinterest when I discovered a pin for this design that led me to Albion Gould’s website. Where I then proceeded to extend my afternoon break to look at all the lovely things and geek out a little bit at a like-minded soul who enjoys cross stitch, sparkly thread, and Doctor Who 🙂

This is a fun and beautiful design that features the DMC Étoile thread line for a bit of sparkle, but of course those can be swapped out if you prefer to use standard threads.

You’ll also notice there’s a special ‘twist’ to this design as well. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, so go on over to get the details and the free cross stitch pattern at https://www.albiongould.com/scottish-thistle-cross-stitch-pattern/.

Enjoy and happy stitching 🙂
