A Little Sunday Creating

In addition to be a photographer, I have my hands in a lot of things. Needlework is just one of them. This is cross stitch. It is an early form of embroidery dating back to the 1600s. While then done on fine linen it is now done on fabric and canvas. I particularly love to work with Aida 14. The number 14 being the number of blocks per inch. Here is my latest creation along with a few more.

Garden Annie

While this little garden girl was done freehand, I also convert photographs for more complex projects. Here are just a few.

Prairie Girl

I scan the image into my cross stitch software to create the pattern for this pic. Merging the pic and the pattern together I create the complete pdf pattern that can be easily downloaded.

Elf Madness

At Christmas I sketched out this crazy pic and also created a cross stitch pattern from it.

From the patterns I frame some and make pillow covers from others. If you are interested in learning how to cross stitch you can email me for instructions or you can also find videos on YouTube.

I have the first pattern and others in my Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/FolkwaysCreations?ref=shop_sugg

Hope you have enjoyed this little segment.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
