New Embroidery Pattern Set: Cowboy


I have listed a new pattern set in my shop.  It is called Cowboy.  I love all the fun cowboy and old west inspired motifs.  I am already stitching the border on a pillowcase with one of the motifs.  This little rope, horseshoes and stars grouping:



 I am using the split stitch for the rope.  I plan to do two or three rows of it, side by side to make a nice rope-y texture:


I love the color palette I am using and of course, remembering to keep track of my floss colors! 


This is a picture of the pattern packet :

Very nice! I wish I had a little boy to have an excuse to buy this pattern! I may just buy it anyway! I really love you patterns.

Great, brings back memories of old the old Westerns I used to watch with my brother when I was small! I'm sure this will be very popular Kim!

Kim, I totally love, love these!! I've gone ahead and favorited it in your shop, because I *know* I'm going to get it! I like your idea of doing the rope in the stem stitch...are you going to do it to fill? Or are you going to outline the rope and do something with the spiral in the center? Just curious! :)

Hi Denise :) Thank you!! I am still unsure about how to do the rope - I was thinking 2-3 rows of stitches alongside each other and then maybe making a straight stitch (in a diagonal) across the top to look like the rope twist? Sounds confusing doesn't it?! I think it will work - I will post my picture when I am done with it.
