I have a couple giant year-long works in progress going on this year. CloudsFactory is releasing a sampler one block at a time, full of magical creatures! I am absolutely in love with this pattern. The rest is a mystery, and I absolutely cannot wait to see what comes next!
This is the block that convinced me I needed to stitch this pattern. I started seeing it all over Instagram, and knew I had to get in on this. That tree! The centaur!
A frog prince for February, along with a cauldron and potions.
AND THIS. This phoenix. This is my absolute favorite so far! I think he is absolutely gorgeous!
And here’s the whole thing so far! Please excuse my sad hoop rings. Pay attention, instead, to that gorgeous border. So much fun to stitch!
Want to join in? You can buy a subscription to the pattern on CloudsFactory.net.
I am stitching on the recommended fabric, Magical Clouds from Dovestitch. I actually don’t love it. It looks beautiful – the blues are gorgeous and the silver sparkle is really pretty – but it has a little too much stretch. I’m using the 16 count Aida (it is also available in evenweave and linen).
I’ll post the first three blocks of another year-long sampler I’m doing on Friday! Am I crazy for attempting two of these at a time?
