New Cross Stitch Pattern in Progress

According to the Chinese Astrology Calendar, 2022 is the Year of Water Tiger. We realised that we didn’t have a single tiger pattern, so our designer immediately got to work. True, our tiger will not be swimming, only lying on the grass. But it will be a Bengal tiger. The beginning of the new patterns is here:

New Project

I have so many orders, that’s why there is no way to create something new for the shop. Still, I am trying very hard and here is the result of my trials – I will be knitting a modern dahlia garland. Different variations in the shape of the petals are possible – some will be round, others slightly oblong; some will have the middle filled in, others will be empty. And, of course, the colours will be different, based on the threads I have available. It’s all thanks to Tatiana Litke, whose video tutorial I used to make my dahlias.

New Cross Stitch Pattern

New Sedge Warbler cross stitch pattern from our little summer birds series. The sedge warbler is a small, quite plump, warbler with a striking broad creamy stripe above its eye and greyish brown legs. It is a summer visitor, and winters in Africa, south of the Sahara Desert.

This is what the download files look like.

Pumpkins Garland

It’s the highest time to start making garland for Halloween. A Pumpkin garland has long been in my plans but only now I’ve just managed to start crocheting it. As a rule, I firstly test each new project on a plain yarn from my scraps and only after writing down the pattern I start making it on a suitable yarn. This time I choose the base for my project from one of my favourite designer – Anabelia, whose pumpkin-shaped coasters charmed me:

Of course, I had to adjust the number of different stitches to the thickness of my yarn and the hook. So the first attempt is in the picture, as well as the yarn I ordered for this project. I promise to show you the garland making process as soon as it’s possible.
