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.

This post is not accidental, because one of my works – Irys – received two awards. I am very grateful to the organizers of this competition, who gave me the opportunity to see a lot of beautiful works, which you can see by following the link below. In addition, I would like to thank the talented painter  Oksana Gatalskaja , the author of this beautiful Irys, according to which the designer Anna Kuznietsova made the pattern. Thank you!

Taurus

In spring I embroidered Taurus painting from the Zodiac Signs series as a birthday present for my friend. I bought the diagram in the Etsy shop at Satsuma.  The pattern is very clear, colours are wonderful, I enjoy each cross. Probably the Taurus on a black canvas would look better, but I already have problems with my eyes, for this I sew on the white evenweave with DMC thread. This is the result.

This was my first attempt to place the embroidery in the hoop and I must say that I am very pleased with the result. I watched a lot of tutorials how to do it on youtube and here are a few more photos of the back of this embroidery. I used white fetr to hide the back side of embroidery (unfortunately, I haven’t got an ideal back side of my cross stitich).

Pink Peonies by Riolis

This was my first kit I’ve bought, because peonies were my mum favourite flowers. It was my mother, who taught me to cross stitch, embroider, knit and crochet. In memory of my mum I cross stitch these beautiful flowers.

The producer of the kit is Riolis Ltd., from Moscow, Russia riolis

The author of the pattern is an artist Anna Petrosyan.

The kit contais:

  • easy instruction in different languages: Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian;
  • multicolour chart (I prefer black and white charts, so it was some new experience for me);
  • 14 count white Zweigart Aida fabric (now I’ll change it to evenweave, but remeber, it was my first kit);
  • Anchor stranded thread (20 colours);
  • threads sampler;
  • a needle (a very thin and a very good needle).

The work is made with:

  • 1-strand cross-stitich;
  • 2-strand cross-stitches;
  • 3-strand cross stitches;
  • tapestry stitch of 1 strand;
  • back stitch with 1-strand stitch;
  • back stitch with 2-strand stitches.

What is more, 7 combined colours are used in this pattern. Thus, it was not as easy, as it seems to be, but the effect is worth the work I’ve done. Finished size 15 3/4” x 11 3/4” or 40 x 30 cm.
