Christmas in Summer Cross Stitch New Release

Hello friends.
I thought I’d pop in today with a little update. Thank you so much for all the lovely messages I’ve received after the passing of my Mum a few weeks ago.  I’m doing okay, taking one day at a time, and keeping busy with gardening, stitching and creating some new things.
I’m excited to introduce my latest cross stitch design called 'Christmas in Summer' which is specially created for stitchers in the Southern Hemisphere for their Christmas stitching and decorating.  It’s also perfect for anyone spending their December holidays in a summer location.
The chart-pack is available for purchase and instant download in my shop.  The chart-pack contains A4 sized charts in both colour and black and white.
Keep well.

Sad News

Hello there, i've been quiet on here for a few weeks. Sadly my Mum passed away and as you can imagine it has been a very difficult time. 

I am taking time to be quiet, to rest and to reflect over the next coming weeks and will be back when i'm ready. 

Until then keep crafting and taking care of yourself. 

Love Karen x

Sunset Swim Complimentary Cross Stitch Chart (Revisited)

Good morning,

I'm just popping in on the blog to very quickly to let you know about the revised version of 'Sunset Swim' which is a cross stitch piece I created in 2014 and which i've revised today.  This revised version is larger that the original but still falls in the category of a small stitched piece.

'Sunset Swim' is a complimentary chart for you to enjoy for your summer, seaside or wonders of nature decorating and displays.  The chart pack also includes a Pattern Keeper friendly chart option and is available on my website.

Happy stitching and please don't forget to tag me in your photos of your completed pieces with #weediflowercreations because I love seeing them.

Love,   Karen x

May 2023 News

Hello friends,

Here we are in May and what a gorgeous month it tends to be here in the UK.  Spring is in full swing and i'm enjoying the longer days, which allows me more time for stitching in the evening after dinner accompanied by the song of the blackbird who lives in our garden.

Last month I was delighted to introduce my newest cross stitch design called 'Memory' in my series Echoes of South Africa. This piece is egg-shaped as a nod to the season and festivities in April and  shows a sunset with elephant in earthy colours.  I also included a bonus chart to stitch the piece as an oval shape if preferred.

In March I celebrated reaching 500 subscribers on my YouTube channel and as promised announced two winners in April's episode to select a chart of their choice from my shop.  Both chose 'Memory' and i'm looking forward to seeing their completed pieces in the future.  If you've not yet visited my channel I'd love it if you would come over and  join us

Of course I can't sign off without mentioning the Coronation which took place this weekend.  To commemorate the occasion I created a free chart which is available for instant download in my Freebies section.  It's been so lovely and joyful to see them popping up on people's social media photos and videos so beautifully stitched.  I am honoured that you invest your time in stitching my creations.

Thank you for visiting me here on my website and I hope you find a project or freebie you like.

Happy crafting.

Love, Karen      x
