Some exotic UK birds’ cross stitch patterns are in our Etsy shop. They are Bluethroat, Crane, Hoopoe, Bee-Eater, and Mandarin Ducks.
It supposes to be a new counted cross stitch pattern from the Sea Eagle series.
Here is the process of creating a new cross stitch pattern from the “Fly” series. This will be a Bald Eagle native to North America. Bald eagles are not bald; the name derives from an older meaning of the word, “white-headed”. As a rule, the Bald eagle shuns people and settles away from populated areas. Partners remain faithful to each other for many years, often all their lives. Eagles hatch from one to three chicks each year. In 1782 the Bald Eagle was officially recognized as the national bird of the United States, its images appeared on the coat of arms, the presidential standard, monetary signs and other state attributes of this country, as well as on the logos of national corporations. Indians identify the bird with a deity, and many legends and rituals are associated with them.
We are glad to show you two finished Waxwings pictures, that our customer Anna shared with us. Thank you, Anna, for this beautiful stitching! This is the same pattern for both pictures and we can see how natural light affects shades of canvas colours.
This year’s winter is harsh, snowy and frosty, just as it should be in our climate zone. I love this kind of winter, but in February you can already feel spring approaching – the sun is warm, the sky is bright blue and, most importantly, the birds are singing in a very spring-like way. Thus, we have a spring scheme in our shop as well – Bullfinches on the Wild Rosemary in a lovely pink colour. I’d like to show you not only the patteern itself, but its finished picture too.
By the way, we have more Bullfinches patterns at the shop, like these:
I am pleased to present your a new counted cross stitch pattern – dancing cranes with delicate pink peonies in the background.
Cranes are highly symbolic birds in many cultures because of their beauty and spectacular mating dances. Crane mythology is widely spread and can be found in a very differen areas. More about these graceful birds are here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crane_(bird)
We have some small birds cross stitch patterns, here I’d like to present you new – House Sparrow and Common Linnet.
House Sparrows live across many different regions of the world. Humans have not domesticated House Sparrows in any way. So, House Sparrows do not make good pets. Humans have attempted to keep them as pets, but they do not thrive in a household setting. Additionally, they are not the most colorful of birds, and their song is not particularly catchy or melodic.
Common Linnets were popular cage birds during the 19th century. Now they can be found in Europe, West Asia, and North-West Africa. Eastern and northern populations of Common Linnets migrate to the south during the autumn. These birds produce melodic, pleasant songs that consist of fast trills and twitters.
The scientific name of common linnet, “Carduelis Cannabina”, refers to the feeding habits of this bird and its affection for hemp (variety of cannabis). The common name “Linnet” refers to a fondness for flaxseed, that is used in the manufacture of linen.
In any case, both birds can be observed in my country, and you can cross-stitch them for yourself or as a gift for a bird lover 🙂 They are beautiful, aren’t they?
