A tribute to the magnolia flower
This embroidery by Faby Reilly is a hymn to the beauty of the magnolia, ephemeral flower unfurling its light pink buds, always at the mercy of a shower or a gust of wind. This one, by contrast, will always preserve its splendor. Mounted into a small heart shape, almost small enough to fit in the hand, it will grace a doorknob or encase fragrance in your chest of drawers.
In the same collection
More variations on the flower. The natural linen background used for the sampler gives more softness, while the white linen used for the biscornu brings out the freshness of the colors.

Amazingly refined glasses case
With her minute sense of detail, Faby Reilly brings us a wonderful project that will be worth every stitch you put into it.
The exquisite Wild rose cross stitch pattern, complete with beaded details, comes with a companion tutorial that takes you through every step of stiffening, lining, and assembling both sides.
As the rose petals and motif are fully stitched with white to pink shades, you can select your very own background color for this project. Natural linen comes to mind but blue, grey or green shades of evenweave or linen would also look fantastic.

Tips for stitching on bath towels
Bath towels make beautiful stitching projects and you can even coordinate them with toilet bags and pouches.
Here are some tips for stitching on terry towel.
Basically there are two options:
- Ready to Stitch terry towels, with a woven Aida area designed for stitching (available from DMC depending on your country, from Rico and several other brands. Charles Crafts only offers small sizes though). On the plus-side, it's easy and straightforward. You only need to make sure your pattern (in stitches) fits in the band's height and width. The only drawback is that the reverse of your stitching will show, so you need to be extra careful to do a clean job with your stitching.
- Stitching on an Aida band and sewing in on regular towels. This allows much more flexibility in your choice of quality, size and color and might be a cheaper option too. The back of your stitching won't show, so that's really nice. The stitched band is sewn onto the terry towel so you'll need a sewing machine and you should check the thickness so make sure it can be handled by the sewing machine.
Regarding thread colors, make sure you stitch with colorfast colors, such as DMC floss, which can we washed at high temperature. Avoid using bleach however when you launder the towels.
Finally, make sure that the start and end of your threads are extra secure, slipping the ends under a few more stitches than usual so stitches don't come undone after washing.
A Wild Rose Wreath, new from Faby Reilly Designs
This Wild rose comes in the most delicate colors, it's amazing to see the petals come to life as you stitch, them, especially as you add the final touch of gold seed beads in the heart of the flower. The round cushion shape is just perfect for enhancing the motif but you could equally frame the stitched piece if you prefer.
You can now stitch a complete set of stitchers' needlework accessories, with the biscornu serving as a pincushion. They will make a very cute gift for a friend too!
