Maman Noël Pendant “How about this Maman Noël Pendant by Faby Reilly? It’s actually a tree ornament with an unusual three-sided shape, but you could frame it as a small picture if you prefer. It uses whole stitches and backstitch only, with a few beads for extra detail, but you could leave these off if you want to finish it quickly.”

Purple Iris Biscornu “This wonderful biscornu comes from the studio of Faby Reilly and features a wonderful arrangement of purple irises. The black outline gives a stained glass window effect and the placement of the stems add to the art nouveau feel. The embroidery features a few additions to the usual cross stitch with some eyelets in metallic gold, seed beads, and some spider web roundels.”

Love Bookmark “Q. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’d love to stitch something small for my husband that isn’t a card! I can’t seem to find any patterns that aren’t overly flowery.
A. How about this lovely bookmark from Faby Reilly […]? It has two stitching components: ‘love’ worked in cross stitch, and embroidered swirls and hearts on top. There are some flowers, but not many, and you can leave them out if you wish. The chart is for a bookmark and a key fob, so, if you have time, you could stitch an extra pressie!”
