this is just how grey (and the exposure has been brightened up on this!!!). So a little colour and cuteness was absolutely in order this week.
these little houses can be filled in with all kinds of colours
or quickly outlined in a simple backstitch
you can even give them little appliqued rooves
I've been stitching these pixie houses on lavender bags for a long time and I think they are a form of colour therapy. They would look lovely all in a row, a sort of pixie street, but be sure to pop some trees on your street too.
Now I am moving on to a little black and white work as I have been asked to create a pattern for my catching wished embroidery
It's actually black, grey and silver and mainly single threads with the dreaded shiny thread too! I shall pop a post on here when this pattern is available for sale
Have a lovely weekend
