Or so the old ad copy read. Ink Circles has a mailing list that I use to update folks when new things are coming their way, events coming up, and sometimes to share a little love. In a recent mailing I included a free cross stitch chart called Celtic Swirls. The chart is still available to download for newcomer folks when they sign up for the newsletter (see the Ink Circles home page.)
Julia stitched her version up quickly using silks from a D-Bag (detritus = left overs, end bits, unlabeled, and other mish mosh) of Vikki Clayton's Hand-Dyed Fiber. This type of pattern is a perfect way to use up some of those little extra bits of fiber. Once stitched, a small square like this can be finished up as a biscornu, an ornament, a needle book or a number of other goodies. Thanks, Julia, for sharing your photo. It looks great!
Just a reminder for stitchers in Australia, the design will need to be reversed such that the spirals go in the other direction. Cheers.
