New Frog Pattern

We have a new cross stitch pattern – the Red-backed Poison Dart Frog, a terrestrial frog, gets its common name from the splash of colour across its back that can vary from scarlet red to fiery orange. Less than an inch (2.5 centimetres) in length, this colourful frog is small enough to be included in the group of frogs called “thumbnails.” Primarily a ground dweller in lowland areas of the upper Amazon of Peru and Ecuador, it does occasionally climb trees. Its poison is moderately toxic (from https://www.aquariumofpacific.org/onlinelearningcenter/species/red_backed_poison_dart_frog)

Review

Stitchers do not very often leave reviews on the cross stitch pattern they buy from us. It’s normal. Digital items are specific. That’s why we are very excited to get a review on a chart customer leaves at the shop some days after she had bought it. Such review (5 stars in this case) means that the pattern is big enough and is very clear to follow it. That is what we strive for when creating our charts. Thank you, Helen, so much for these stars.

New Pattern

A new cross stitch pattern – Sea Eagle – is still in progress. There is not much left to do – finish the feathers and colour the surroundings. This eagle will be from the winter birds series, so please don’t expect a lot of colours. It seems to me that raw winter surroundings will emphasize the majesty of this beautiful bird. Do you agree with me?

New Pattern

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.
