Last week I shared 10 cross-stitch and needlework projects I completed in 2016, which for me is a huge number of finishes. But, that wasn’t all I finished last year! Here are the remaining cross-stitch finishes from 2016.
The 10 finishes I shared last week were all by other designers. I stitched patterns by big names like Lizzie Kate and The Prairie Schooler and also projects by lesser known designers. But, these next four projects are close to my heart because they were all my own designs, so I thought they deserved a post of their own.
Clockwise, from top left:
- I had wanted to create some cross-stitch patterns inspired by Alice in Wonderland for ages, and last year I finally decided to work on my goals. “The Raven and the Writing Desk” was the first result, and I am still really happy about how it turned out. Although I’ve designed little things for myself for years, I learned a ton while creating this pattern.
- “I’m Late” was my second pattern inspired by Alice in Wonderland featuring those famous words from the White Rabbit.
- This little Celtic knot tin topper was a pattern I put together, too. It’s hard to find patterns that are the right size and shape for tin toppers, so I just made my own.
- Finally, I designed and stitched this “Let Go and Let God” pattern because I tend to stress out and I need frequent reminders to relax.
The Alice in Wonderland patterns, and “Let Go and Let God” are all available in my Rabbit Girl Crafts Etsy shop. The Celtic knot tin topper is available as a free download on my blog. You can find it in the archives here.
So, that’s it for 2016. I do have several new original patterns planned for 2017, so stay tuned!
As always, thanks so much for reading!
