Small cross stitching – stitching small elements of a larger design!
I’ve mentioned previously that I really like patterns that are designed using different separate elements. You will find many of these in your local needlework shop or in online shops. With a little research you will find some freebies online too.
This particular peacock design was a free pattern found online. I apologize but I do not have a source to provide. It measures 2 ½ inches and is stitched on a dyed 40 count linen in mottled blues. One strand of floss was used for stitching in Colours #53 and #120.
Surprisingly this is a colour combination I would not have considered myself BUT I think it looks fabulous.
