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! :)
