CloudsFactory Magical Creatures Sampler – March


cf march composite

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!

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!

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?

  1. It was the phoenix that convinced me I needed to do this one. My threads and fabric are on order (I’m getting the linen) and now I just have to wait for them to arrive.

    Often, the dyeing process will make a fabric softer, so that might be why it feels looser than you are used to, if you usually work on plain Aida. I hope you find you get used to it so you can enjoy your stitching without worrying about the stretch.

    • I’m so glad you’re starting this one! You won’t regret it. It’s amazing!

      I’m getting used to the fabric after 3 months’ worth of stitching on it. Lol. It looks so amazing, so I’m clinging to that. 😉
