Welcome Stitchers and Friends! This blog is about my wee cottage industry: Fearn Abbey Needleworks; and about my own personal stitching adventures. Have a wee look around and see if we can be stitching friends. Thank you for stopping by!

OH! The Excitement!

Here is my latest design:  A Scottish thistle and tartan.  This design, inspired by traditional Scottish Highland ambience, measures approximately 5" x 5", and is stitched on 14-count blue marble Aida.

The tartan is based on the Anderson tartan, but I have changed it to something a bit more impressionistic so that it would suit everyone...not just Andersons!

I really liked the idea of making the thistle golden, rather than the natural greens and purples of a wild thistle. My hope is that you will think of something a bit more regal, heraldic, and armorial even!

You can find this latest design in my Etsy shop HERE.  It is available as an instant download.  Happy stitching!
