Snowy Owl

Snow, Polar, white&fluffy sound Christmassy…  That’s how snowy owl became ornament.

Traditional round shape (perforated paper 14Ct), magnificent eyes and Rainbow Gallery Wisper thread for fuzziness. Blackwork feather pattern seems ideal to embroider birds.

Snowy owls are such beautiful birds and thank Harry Potter, who brought them back in trend : )

Turquoise Whale in bloom

This is my beloved whale.
It’s the turning point in my small business. But it was created almost accidentally. Couple years ago I stitched a lion’s silhouette with leafy pattern designed by Lucie Heaton (from ‘Cross Stitcher’ magazine). And I decided to make a paired design – a whale with flower pattern.       I drew the whale’s silhouette, filled it with old fashion flower motif and stitched it. Months later I sent it for National Needlecraft Awards 2018 (UK) and my whale became one of three finalists and was exhibited at The Spring Knitting & Stitching show in Olympia. I know it’s not huge, but the fact that people liked my work gave me confidence to start ‘Cotton Pixels’

121w x 81h stitches and just three shades of stranded cotton.
No backstitch.

Pictograms

or “Greek memories”

 

These pictographs are associated with Greece. There are nine small greek emblems in traditional colours. Easy to stitch to remember sunny lazy days.

Just three shades of DMC threads and 62×62 stitches. Besides stitching this chart as a framed piece or as a top of a box you could add a small piece of wadding, sew layers together in between pictograms (use matched or invisible sewing thread) to get soft squares like a small quilt, then frame it.

This chart is suitable for both Aida and evenweave fabric, but for smooth finish and easy “quilting” use evenweave fabric. Choose any count you wish.
