Santa in progress (without backstitch, beads and cording, only whole and half cross stitches).
Halloween season has started with pumpkins counted cross stitch pattern. Pumpkins can be used for Halloween tree decoration if you stitch them separately on plastic canvas, or as wall hanging, or for a cushion… there are really a lot of different possibilities to decorate your home for Halloween 🙂
I have a new start! It’s suppose to be a surprise, so I can’t tell you anything about it. Ok, may be some specific information will not reveal a secret : this is Gold Collection Dimensions kit, designed by Peggy Abrams. The kit contains presorted thread, metalic thread (gold kreinik) wool yarn, 18 count white Aida, felt, beads, needles and instructions with an alphabet. I am so excited about it, because it is my first Dimensions ever! What is more, I will have to use some new techniques to create properly effect, such as Cording, for example. So be ready, I am going to post more pictures with my progress on it here.
I’d like to notice, that Dimensions projects often use half cross stitches with 2, 3 and even 4 strands for beautiful shading, in this case, for snow.
There are also a lot of confetti here (cross stitchers understand my pain).
To be continued …
I just love it when our customers share their stitching with us. This is a new review on our Slavic Horoscope Raven counted cross stitch pattern – a perfect example of using cross stitching to decorate clothes.
New Winter Birds counted cross stitch patern at our etsy shop at StitchersLand is available now.
I’d like to share with you the joy – yesterday I received my Lakesideneedlecraft Summer Cross Stitch Book 2020 from Kate Worthington, the owner of https://www.lakesideneedlecraft.co.uk/
What is more, I received two new lovely needle minders with the book. I always order needle holders from Lakeside Needlecraft, and now I have two cats, a dog, a bird, and an apple in natural wooden colours.
Finally, I would like present to you all 12 signs of the Slavic Horoscope. Which one is your favourite? I am a Stoat by this Horoscope and I like it 🙂
Bear is the last, 12th Slavic Horoscope sign at our shop.
The bear is the owner of the forest, but not the king of animals, not the king of all forests, steppes, deserts and mountains… just because the Bear was born lazy. What is more, he knows it and he got used to it.
It is considered to be the main in the forest because, despite its power, it is surprisingly simple and careless, indulgent to the weak, does not offend the small things, and is satisfied with the small things: to get honey, to lie in the raspberry thickets. We can only envy how cleverly he is arranged in his den, where he sleeps all winter.
Next Slavic Horoscope sign – Dog – is ready.
The distinctive feature of the Dog is loyalty and fearlessness. He is faithful to his friends, and even opponents trust him more than their friends.
