Swedish Rhombus Folk Embroidery pdf pattern with birds in cross stitch

Swedish Rhombus Folk Embroidery pdf pattern with birds in cross stitch

Instead of working on my next biscornu pincushion, which is halfway complete, I decided to take a nosedive into Swedish Museums. A bit for inspiration, but mostly to procrastinate.

Several hours later I suddenly found myself finishing up a newly drawn pattern from all the traditional headscarves I came across. They came in so many different varieties and all in some form of blackwork. And I love that because it’s also very similar to the traditional head scarves that some Norwegian folk costumes use as well.

I quite like the rhombus shape and for fun I also mixed some colours up to see what it could look like in a two-tone. I wasn’t disappointed. I think it actually looks best as two-tone. But that’s just how I feel about it.

Geometric Mandala No 1

Geometric Mandala No. 1 – a modern cross stitch pattern

So I was watching True Blood.
I’ve seen parts of it before, but I was trying to binge because there were various parts I hadn’t seen before and provided me with a bit of context for things that was happening by the time I originally started watching.

During this time I was just playing with graph paper and some Staedtler pens I usually use for my bookcoloring.

And thus the Geometric Mandala No. 1 was created. I figured it looked too quirky to not stitch and see how it turns out.

If you like the Mandala, it’s now available in my shop here
