Christmas in July: Day 23 - Aurora

Welcome to Christmas in July day 23! This pattern was inspired by the Mucha princess patterns Pinky the Pink has made, this one uses the colours of Aurora 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!
Aurora's pattern calls for some blended colours but no backstitching or beads. Blending threads is easy! You just take 1 thread of each colour called for and use them together as a single thread - that's all there is to it!

You can find the pattern here

I'll see you tomorrow with the next Christmas in July pattern!

Christmas in July: Day 17 - Celtic White and Gold

Its day 17 and time for another Christmas in July pattern. Today's pattern is inspired by an illuminated manuscript I saw (I see lots of them as I watch #medievaltwitter on twitter). The pattern and colour combination are very simple yet stylish. Although I did it white and gold you could do it in any combination you like.
