A while ago I signed up for the Pillow Talk swap on Instagram. I absolutely could not resist it as it was my favourite swap back in the days when Flickr was fun to use. My partner is a fan of scrappy so I decided to resize my Octastring block for an epic mini version.
Each block finishes up around 6" and as each block is made up of 9 patches they are rather time consuming, well over 20 hours of work to get it to this point, but I think the end result is worth it.

I've been hand stitching again this week. I drew up another cross-stitch/embroidery design - a Christmas tree and made it small enough to fit in a 3" hoop.
There is loads of texture in this mini as I used lots of different 3D stitches to add a bit of personality to what is a very simple design.
I'll be hanging this mini up on the tree along with two other minis I've made - a garland and a slightly over-weight dove of peace.Payhip store. Catch you soon x
