May Project of the Month – Playing with Cross Stitch

I posted some cross stitched cards in November and I’m back at it.  I find it relaxing and I enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out new patterns.

First the easy stuff:  I did the cards below during my vacation last month but never got around to posting them.  The first two are influenced by the Caribbean.

 

The second two were a result of trying new dies:  a tag and a heart.

 

The remaining cross stitch is still waiting to be made into cards.  In each of these I was trying to recreate a different pattern.  The navy and white emulates an antique coverlet I once owned.

The red and black is the plaid pattern that I mentioned I wanted to try in my November post.

And the last sample was my attempt to emulate a plaid pattern again, but this time using three colors.

These last three use the square cross stitch die from Paper Smooches.
