Christmas Card

Christmas is coming, so there is the highest time to stitch postcards. This year I haven’t got time for them at all, but I made one card at my daughter’s request. She needs it for changing Christmas gifts at work, so I hope the postcard will arrive in the UK on time. The main theme of the postcard is, of course, mouse, because the next 2020 year is Rat’s year by Chinese Horoscope. And since I’m very fond of Lucie Heaton mice, I stitched this one. I found it in The World of Cross Stitch magazine and I needed to change it slightly: to add Holly, because I wanted the frame of the postcard would be green, not red. So, the result is here. What do you think about it?

 

East Asian Inspirations Sal Update

As I promised – the 8th part Of East Asian Sal is ready and presents flowers in many shades of blue colour.  This time I tried to stitch more on the frame. It is slightly complicated stitching on the sides but fortunately quite simple in the center. This is the result.

East Asian Inspirations Sal

Update on this beautiful Sal by Lucie Heaton pattern. Now I’ve got seven parts made, today I started on the 8th. In the previous, 7 part, we stitched a beautiful sea wave according to the famous Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter, and printmaker of the Edo period Katsushika Hokusai. The artist is best known as the author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji which includes the internationally iconic print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa Lucie’s interpretation looks like this:

East Asian Inspirations Sal

Some time ago Kate Worthington announced new SAL by Lucie Heaton pattern and I sign in for it, because I really like Lucie’s projects. I cross stitched a lot of her mice, but this new project was a surprise. It was created in beautiful shades of blue color and consists of 12 parts, so the project will keep me happy for a long time.

I use Murano 32 count evenweave, pearl colour for this project and DMC thread, as always. I always buy evenweave at my favourite Internet shop HobbyStudio from Elbląg city, this store has never let mi down before.

I get the pattern on the 1st of each month, keep up to date, the next part of the Sal is coming soon.
