Updates & Priorities
I've been busy stitching when I can outside of us having moved house mid-May but unfortunately, I haven't had the time to stay up-to-date on blog posts and sort of social media posts.
So I wanted to rectify that a bit by having a little bit of a round-up post of some patterns I released in both April and May that I haven't written about. I have so many patterns that are designed ready and waiting but the last time I did an Instagram stories poll about whether I should release a pattern before stitching it up first, it was a resounding "No" from the responses. So unfortunately, things are slow going.
Of course I've been doing my best to keep up-to-date with releasing an Overwatch hero once per fortnight. I was late with hero #16 by a day, but I think that being the first time I was late isn't too bad so far!
Hanzo was a toughie to stitch, but that honestly could've been due to the house move. His splash of blue and yellow was a nice change of pace and I enjoyed the challenge of trying to add the trinkets and such he carries with him.
He comes in at 1.72" x 1.78" on 18ct Aida cloth and uses a total of 18 colours!
Widowmaker is brand new today! It was so nice to have a purple-heavy pattern to stitch up, as this project has made me realise just how much grey is a part of each character design.
She uses 16 colours total, fitting into the regular 3" hoop like all my "normal" humanoid heroes do (on 18ct).
My two daughters have their birthdays during the month of June, so I've been busy at work making them each a keepsake cross stitch piece that they can treasure.
I've had interest in both of these being released as purchasable patterns, so stay tuned for that being a possibility in the upcoming future.
What might you like to see as a pattern in the future done by me? Get in touch and we can have a chat!
