Cloudberry

Recently I got a new order: to cross stitch cloudberry, the pattern of which is in my shop. Which is the most interesting thing – I’ll have to frame this embroidery in a hoop, what I’ve made only once and it was Zodiac sign as a gift for my friend. Stitched cloudberry will be a gift for the customer’s mommy. So there are the first pictures of the stitching. I must say that the colors of this berry are beautiful, bright, autumnal and perfectly match our current weather. It is not difficult for me to imagine how such an embroidery can boost every room in the house during the long and dark winter. I think that the second one cloudberry I’ll cross stitch and frame for myself.

Cloudberry also called salmonberry, yellowberry, or baked apple berry is a plant in the rose family, native to the Arctic and subarctic regions of the north temperate zone. Eskimos and Sami collect the sweet juicy fruits in autumn to freeze for winter food. In northern Scandinavia, cloudberries are sold for use in preserves, tarts, and other confections (from https://www.britannica.com/plant/cloudberry)

 

 

Embroidery Workshop

There was a beautiful sunny day on Sunday here, in Warsaw, and we had the impression that the summer had come back. It is an unexpected pleasure to get such a gift from nature in October. What’s more, I signed up for the workshop with Michalina Mruczek on this day, so the day was going to be wonderful. Michalina’s embroidery I admire on Instagram for a long time. The workshops took place in the centre of Warsaw, in Nowy Swiat street, in Zaradne, where I felt like at home. Coffee, tea, meringue – all this creates a very friendly workshop atmosphere. At the start, we got from Michalina Belfast linen fabric, a hoop, 3 needles, Instruction with examples of stitches, patterns for embroidery, mouline Anchor and hand-dyed mouline from Kasia Michalina explains all the secrets of embroidery very precisely and still shows everyone exactly how and what to do. My work – in pictures.

 

Here you can see how our class looked like before the workshops and pay attention – on the table are beautiful Michalina’s works!  As I wrote in one of the previous posts, I have a kit from Michalina and I am going to use it! So, wait for the result 🙂

 

 

 

 

Crowntail Betta Fish

A new counted cross stitch pattern at the shop and this is Crowntail Betta Fish or simply known as Betta is a popular species of freshwater fish. It is also known as the Siamese fighting fish or the Betta spenders. The ancestors of this fish are believed to be native to the rice paddies of Thailand and Cambodia. This colorful fish is very much in demand because of their beautiful structure and moreover, they are easy to breed. However, if you don’t have or can’t have an aquarium at home and take care of this beautiful fish, you can cross stitch it and watch on the picture every day. This is the third chart of the fish in our shop and we hope not the last one.
