Her embroidery patterns are enchanting and although I tend not to use patterns exactly as is, I have used her books a lot for inspiration. Her newest book is full of lovely Christmas patterns and inspiration. You can find it here. I sat down with a cup of tea on Saturday evening after a long day at the quilt show, and lost myself in the pages. Here are my favorite pages.....
I'm totally in love with these little penguins!
And hedgehogs, I have a bit of thing for them too.
I can see a grouping of these little houses on my mantel at Christmas, maybe in some lighter colors.
I think that the patterns are easy to use and there is a good stitch guide at the beginning if you need a refresher. Thank you again Aimee!
Here are some of my projects inspired by Aimee's patterns. They are two pillow cases I embroidered in 2012, for my little nieces and a quilt.
