This pattern was inspired by the Mucha princess patterns Pinky the Pink has made, this one uses the colours of Tiana which you can find here (if it hasn't sold out yet as it's a limited edition pattern). Pinky's etsy shop can be found here with more princesses and much, much more!

Yarn and Colors, Must-Have-Minis - and I fell in love with all the colours - yes even the pink! I knew I had to do something with all the colours but I didn't know what so I started collecting the mini balls of yarn anyway knowing that I'd think of something eventually.

deviantArt #StitchingPirates is having another competition, this time the theme is "sampler". Although I already have a band sampler going I want to make something just for the competition. I have decided to dig into my bag of scrap bits and see what I can make with them. I am going to keep to a seam allowance of 3 stitches (so 3 squares of Aida or 6 threads of evenweave) and backstitch a line which will later be used to whip stitch the sections together. The line will also help me see where I need to stop stitching the patterns used on each bit.

NevaSirenda has made available using her Ukrainian heritage as inspiration. The egg above is the third egg and second largest of them all which I finished into a 3 5/8" x 2 1/4" egg. It was the most complicated of the eggs due to the many colour changes so it's taken me the longest of all of them to stitch. I used yellow silver lined seed beads to stitch it together.

NevaSirenda's first ornament that I continued on to make her second one, the 2012 ornament. As you can see this too is designed with her Ukrainian heritage in mind and it's just as lovely as the first! They are so nice and fast to stitch up, it takes me longer to finish them as an ornament than it does to stitch as the finishing is not my favourite bit.
