Unicorn Whatevered

This unicorn and rainbow pattern from The Hob-bee Hive is a little naughty, a little fun, and a lot of cute. It’s the perfect blend. I love it 🙂

When you download the pattern [here], it’s actually an Excel spreadsheet so it might be a little different than what you’re used to seeing for cross stitch pattern downloads. While different, it’s easy to print and read. You’ll have to make your own floss color choices for this one.

Kudos to the designer for skill, patience, and creativity it takes to build a pattern in this way ~ mega awesome. Definitely leave a comment there on the blog post and let her know you appreciate her hard work and thank her for the fun pattern.

Enjoy and happy stitching!

Easter Egg Ornaments

All four of these shiny egg shaped ornaments were designed by Janelle Giese and are available as free pattern downloads via Kreinik.

Easter Egg ornament Designed by Janelle Giese for Kreinik - four free cross stitch patterns available to download

Get the pattern PDF files [here] and [here]. There are four egg patterns all together, in two PDFs. All the designs do include specialty stitches, but the pattern files include some instruction to help you along with them.

quick tip: While they are shown as Easter ornaments, these are basically just tiny band samplers. You can easily change things up in the finishing if you don’t want to have them as egg-shaped ornaments. You could make square ornaments instead, of course. You could also do up some tiny flat-folds, hanging sachets, needlebooks, bell pulls, or just about anything else with these delightful little patterns.

The pattern is charted with Kreinik’s Silk Mori and Hi Lustre threads in mind, but of course you can use whatever you have in your stash. Though, I will say that I really do love the Silk Mori line, they’re wonderful to stitch with and a reasonably affordable silk thread.

Great Men Are Forged In Fire – The War Doctor

One of my favorite quotes from what is possibly my favorite episode of Doctor Who, the 50th Anniversary Special.

Okay, so I can’t really truly pick a favorite episode. I love them all. This is definitely my favorite “special” of the bunch. How could it not be, with all those Doctor versions together on screen doing awesome things.
