Finally, the day has come! I’m so excited to show you guys the second set of embroidery patterns by Little Dorrit & Co. – and give away some free patterns!
I’m sure you won’t be too surprised to hear that nearly all the guesses were correct. We hoped you’d be able to tell who they were – we want these patterns to be able to speak for themselves with as little explanation as possible. So let me introduce you to …
Couple #1: Romeo & Juliet
Encircled by a lush and vibrant rose, Juliet is dressed in her medieval finery and Romeo in a tunic (stitched to resemble brocade, not armour as one commenter suggested!) and they are locked in a loving embrace.
Couple #2: Antony & Cleopatra
Decked in her ancient bling, Cleopatra reaches out to her Mark Antony, joining Egypt and Rome in love affair so epic that Shakespeare committed it to verse.
And, lastly (my favorite!) – Couple #3: Lizzie & Mr. Darcy
Stubborn but loving, these two look they’re right on the verge of admitting their feelings to each other and living happily ever after!
So check ’em out in the Little Dorrit & Co. shop or on Flickr if you’d like to know more – we really, really hope you like them!
But wait – we still have winners to announce! THREE WINNERS, remember? Exciting! Ok, here goes:
That’s Rachel, Bladerunner5 (!), and Jamie B! I’ll be emailing the winners shortly to get them all their free patterns, and thanks to everyone for playing along with us!
