Zoe Goes on Holiday!

It’s a few weeks since I last shared my Zoe box with you, it’s a stitch-a-long by Faby Reilly and I got a little bit behind, so it was one of the projects I took on holiday with me when I went on the Cleveland Way. The patterns are released every two weeks, at the moment we are working on the side of the box.

This time I’ve been working on the ‘summer’ side. Whilst I was away I managed to more or less complete the cross-stitch part, I say more or less as I forgot one of the floss colours! Anyway, shortly after my return it looked like this…


I must admit at this point I thought it was another bird in the top corner, however last Monday the next pattern was released with all the top-stitching and extra stitches and decorative embellishments.

It’s a butterfly!

I love all the extra stitches that Faby uses in her designs, here I’ve stitched french knots, spiders web stitch, rice stitch and Algerian eyelet stitch, embellished with sequins and beads.

We’ve completed three sides so far, so the project so far looks like this…


One more week until the next pattern release!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    What a fun stitch along! The ladybug is so cute and the special stitches add such wonderful detail. I will be watching for the next step.

  5. Just lovely. There were a few stitches I wasn’t familiar with – I am going to do a quick search for them. I do love the spiderweb flowerettes ~ so cute!
