Father's Day Card and a Bookmark

This week, apart from knitting my julekuler's I've also found some time to stitch this cool retro-looking bookmark. The design comes from the recent issue of Cross Stitcher and it has been designed by Emily Peacock. (My first 'Peacock' in my collection of cross stitches, hopefully the next ones will follow in the future)


I loved stitiching it - the colours are vibrant, intense, they mingle well and the pattern is so simple that you just can't go wrong with it. I simply love Emily Peacock's retro looking designs for their boldness and geometric touch :) 





For the upcoming Father's Day in PL I've made this card for my dad:



Looking at my recent creations, you can clearly see I've been in "the stripy mood" recently :) Retro rules! Next week is going to be EXTREMELY busy and crafty as I'm preparing for my 2nd fair next Saturday. I'm hoping to paint some more pieces of glass this week. Excited to see some more freshly painted stock!

Time to head over to Hand-made Monday place, which is Handmade Harbour blog. Follow me and see what other crafty people have been up to.
