I’m back with more cross-stitch! Holly Black’s Folk Of The Air series has so many amazing quotes, it seemed like a missed opportunity to not give one a go. If you’ve missed some of my other creations, I got into cross-stitch over lockdown and have been trying to recreate some of my favorite quotes and characters. I’ve always wanted to be able to draw scenes from books, but I cannot draw so I guess this is my way of doing fan art? Either way, it was fun to make.
My main inspiration for the border was ‘as many flowers as possible’ – and I think I managed to fulfill the brief! The original plan was to stitch Jude and Cardan in the centre (because they are the most badass couple) but I ran out of room. To be honest, I was short for space for even words. I may have… abridged the quote to fit it all in, but you get the gist.
What do you think? Got any ideas for quotes or characters for me to try next? What are some hobbies that you picked up in lockdown? Any cross-stitching tips would be excitedly accepted too – let me know in the comments!
