I plan releases quite a bit ahead of time, and when I added this next design to the June lineup, I had no idea what would be going on in the world. I have gone back and forth on whether to release it as planned. Ultimately, I decided that we could all use a little happy. <3. Soo... here it is! The first June 2020 release--and I'm calling it Happy.
This design features a vintage bicycle with flowers in the front and back baskets. The word "happy" is written underneath, and the whole thing is framed on the top and bottom with flowers on branches. I played up my love for pastels in this design and leaned heavily on overdyed flosses from Weeks Dye Works to add texture and dimension. The overdyed effect also gives the design a soft and slightly weathered feel. As stitched, the pattern uses shades of blue, pink, gray, green, yellow, and brown.
PATTERN DETAILS: This design suggests threads from Weeks Dye Works and DMC. The pattern uses whole stitches only. The model is stitched over 2 on 32ct Antique White Belfast Linen using 2 ply thread. The stitch count is 55w x 89h and the finished design measures approximately 3 1/2"w x 5 3/8"h when stitched on 32 count/equivalent.
One more time, here it is!
