New stitches on patterned fabric

I have been trying a new squiggly stitch in a checkered pattern and I'm very happy with the results so far. It's loosely inspired by patterns on Formica Kitchen Sets from the Fifties. Well I think it is anyway but I can't actually find an example on the internet with a similar pattern on it. The fabric is great as well, it's a linen/cotton blend with a soft blue gingham print on. This try out is part of the patterns that are to be released later. I'm going to stitch them over the next few weeks. That, and the Cross Stitch Patterns I bought at What Delilah Did. Very excited about those as well. I would love to create a wall in my living room dedicated to embroidery and with different styles and subjects, pretty much like this one!


  1. Yes, I would like to have an embroidery wall too! I am planning to have one in my "craft room" .... :)

  2. that is just like formica!!!!! It reminds me of my Granny's kitchen table. Happy days.
    Can't wait to see what you're up to!

  3. I'm really looking forward to seeing your new patterns!
    Have you seen the photos of all the What Deililah Did patterns on a wall (on her Flickr pages, and also on her blog I think) - it looks BRILLIANT.
    When do you go on holidays? It must be soon.
