Pixie houses and colouring a grey day

Pattern pics
I have finally finished the little houses pattern.  It has been so much fun embroidering these pixie houses in bright cheerful colours while it's so very grey outside!

Grey day 001

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.

12 january 007

these little houses can be filled in with all kinds of colours

Little houses outlined

or quickly outlined in a simple backstitch

Fabric roof framed

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.

the pattern is in my etsy shop and my folksy shop.

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

Catching wishes

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
