Floral Tapestry

I've been working on this floral tapestry for a little while now. It's the second one I've done, do you remember my first one? My mum managed to pick up a second hand standing frame at the car boot so I have been using that to complete it - it's soo much easier than a hand-held frame, much quicker! 

The pattern is a CK design from her book 'Stitch'. I had my eye on making it as soon as I saw it, and I think I will now have the perfect spot for it as a cushion cover for the armchair in our new house :) 
pssst... I also noticed on Amazon that she has a new book 'Patch', coming out this November, just in time for my birthday :) I'm sure we can expect more inspiring and cheerful projects to come!


  1. wow you have done really well! It looks so pretty! I love doing things like this, I find it so relaxing x

  2. The embroidery is gorgeous.. I've looked at that page in my CK book quite a few times. It really is a gorgeous cushion cover, very pretty.
    I also saw that she has a new book coming out, just in time for my birthday in november as well! :-)

    I've pre-ordered the new CK book she also has a cute knitting kit and a crochet kit in a tin that's on my wishlist too!!
