Alicia over at Posie Gets Cozy has me completely hooked on cross-stitching. I just finished her Winterwoods sampler and my fingers are already itching to start another. Thankfully, she recently designed this sweet summer sampler, complete with red, ripe strawberries and a little bee hive!

This pattern is PDF only, not a kit, but luckily there is a tiny embroidery shop tucked away in a farm house nearby that sells the variegated floss used in the sampler. It would be nice to have a gallery wall of these pretty samplers in the knitting room, don’t you think?

The pattern is $6 and can be purchased in Alicia’s shop. Happy stitching!

If you are looking for fresh, young embroidery patterns, you have to check out Sublime Stitching – their stuff is really modern and fun!

And this would be perfect stitched onto a canvas tote-bag, for knitting projects on-the-go:

How about you, readers?  Do you plan on doing any embroidery this month?  We’d love to hear what you’re up to!
