2, 7, 11 and 12 they are so adorable!!! I think both outline and filled in look lovely.
Love your designs. Niki xx

Heather said...

2, 7, 11 and 14

I actually like the outline type the best, but honestly, both kinds are really cute. Maybe it's more a case-by-case basis sort of thing?

FMH said...

All are cute but these are my favorites

Nicole said...

5, 6, 10 & 11 are in my top 4! But I love them all, too cute!

Hi Catherine,

Here are my choices. I really like #10!

10, 11, 2

As for the outline vs. fill-in. It really doesn't matter to me but your work so sweetly lends itself to the outline style - with maybe a little fill-in from time to time to flesh out the details or add some color.

Your decision will be the best I'm sure.

As always, lovely stuff!

I like both outline and fill stitch, but have a particular liking for the latter. I love the # 2, 8, 9,10 and 11. (I love them all, but these are tiny favorites..)

Unknown said...

7,10,&3 are my favorites, though I do think #2 is adorable. (Badgers are soo under represented. lol) Maybe I'm just not in the Christmas mood yet.

I also like a mix of outline and fill, but tend to lean towards outline.

Sherry said...

4,6,9 are my favorites. Actually, I would love to embroider any of the designs your shared. When I embroider, I like to mix it up and do a little filling in and outline.

Megan Chamberlain said...

All such lovely images, I think my favourite are 4, 8, 10, 13, 14 in no particular order :-)
I like both outline and filled in embroidery are good, it depends on the image.

Katy Cameron said...

Well you know I'm all about the bears. And the rest would be just fine too. Great help that, wasn't it? ;o)

feltonthefly said...

Hard to choose, but these are my top picks: Merry Band, Off We Go and Dream Balloon. Also, I love outline embroidery because I love to paint inside the lines : )

Jo in TAS said...

I prefer outline too, my choices are 3, 4 & 5. They're all gorgeous and it was hard to choose!

Marilyn said...

8,9, and 14 (I can't resist your bunnies.). I don't have a preference on filled-in or outline. So cute!!

Pameladawn said...

Oh my goodness but I want them all! But since I have to decide....I love Christmas anything so I would love flight of the tea cup, tea time in the snow, keeping cozy, bunnies love embroidery, for the love of books, our nest (but with just the mommy bunny and the two baby bunnies), dream balloon and off we go.

Thanks for all you do,


Chris V. said...

I like #3, #7, #14 and #15 the most! I like the outline with some details within the most but I just like almost all you do!

Marie Rayner said...

I like outline embroidery, personally. Love all your pictures. I could never pick a favourite!

Leaff Design said...

I haven't yet ventured into a hobby of embroidery, but I love your work, and just wanted to say how beautiful I think these are!

Tatkis said...

Oh my, they are all so cute!
My favourites are 3, 4 and 9!
Outlined or filled - your choice :)

Hiya Catherine!

How exciting that you're including us in your choices. i prefer Thread Painting ( filling in) but am learning to love outline stitching as well. What's great is, how you've been charting them one could actually choose to fill in bits ( say a bunny) and leave other bits outline stitched and that would look great.

My three Favorites are
11. Flight of the Teacup
7. Hedgehog Love
9. Our Nest

That hedgehog is too cute for words!

Good luck deciding which ones to pick, I'm sure we'll love them all no matter ( hedgehog- nod nod hint hint)

It has to be 'very British Bunnies' I just adore them and the title is perfect.

Beth Rang said...

There are so many to love! It would be tough to choose. I like the very British bunnies though.

Karen said...

I like the drawings colored in. I enjoy either crayon-ing in the colors then stitching, or applique then stitching.
My favorites are # 2, 4, 11.
Thank you for the chance to win.

Isa said...

I love the most is our nest, our story and flight of the teacup because they depict the meaning of home and family and simple warms your heart:D

The Flight of the teacup is great for christmas too~

Filled or outline, both are great either way because your drawing are just sooo adorable. It would also depend on where you plan to sew it I think.. But giving both options, is a great thing:D more flexible~

can't wait to see them~

Allie said...

I think you should make ALL of them embroidery patterns! But here's my numbers...3 [cuz I have a British friend], 5, 8. Those are my favorites. I do prefer outline embroidery, I like to color in with pencils instead of stitches...or crayons!
You just make THE cutest stuff.

Tracy said...

They are all so sweet, hard choice! But I'd have to say 1, 7 and 10 are my faves. The designs with more "simpler" line constructions seem likely to be easier to embroider and embellish. But ALL these designs are wonderful, Catherine! :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

Vicki Boster said...

Catherine - Let me begin by saying that I LOVE them all! But here are my favorites - in no particular order~~

#9 nest ( no surprise there!!)
#2 adventure
#5 favorite mements set
#12 snowman (adorable!)
#14 bunny with balloon
315 tea time snow ride

These are beyond precious - you are doing a wonderful job with your creations!


June said...

How in the world am I to ever choose Catherine? These are so darling in every way! If I have to choose...I love 3,6,11, and 15.
Your designs are always wonderful!
sending hugs...

Sereniticat said...
