Pattern of the Week - November 3, 2012

Originally for this week's featured pattern I wanted to share something Scandinavian inspired.  It's one of the hottest trends right now and after browsing through a separate insert in issue #257 of CrossStitcher Magazine I decided I wanted to see more of what's out there.  I did a Google search and one of the top returns was Nordic Needle.  I've been to that site many, many times so I knew there would be great selections.  

Unfortunately I never made it to the beautiful red and white Scandinavian patterns I was expecting to browse.  Instead this beauty was one of the first things I saw.  I was instantly enthralled!  

It's called "Celtic Flower" and is available at $8.99 for the pattern.  I'm still torn on whether I'm going to order a copy for myself.  The only thing that is holding me back is the fractional stitches.  I loathe fractionals!!  Somehow I don't think I'm alone in that feeling.  Either way it's still a gorgeous pattern full of the vibrant colors I love.  If you're interested in the pattern, just click the photo and you'll be taken straight to it where you can read more about it or purchase it.

Happy stitching!  :)


  1. What a beautiful pattern! I always enjoy browsing at the Nordic Needle and feel lucky that I am currently living in Scandinavia.

    1. They have an awesome site! And good for you living there. I bet you're able to get your hands on some fantastic local designs. :)
