Joyful explosion

 

In some ways, this new pattern by Kathy Bungard of Gracewood Stitches reminds us of Beethoven's symphony Ode to Joy, there is such joyful energy and movement in it. Looking at it you can almost feel the floral motifs growing and exploding, like fireworks.

This stunning pattern is part of the Traces of Lace series (see below). In all four patterns, the white, lace-like motif is left unstitched, while the color background, with its dual color, is reminiscent of the light travelling through gemstones.

Beyond Cross stitch

 

In this intriguing design, designer Lesley Teare pushes the boundaries of cross stitch, further exploring ways of mixing stitches. The result is a very interesting mix of counted stitching ranging from plain solid cross stitch to the most delicate blackwork motifs, gently blended into a soft hued design.

Literary inspiration

 

Profoundly moved by some of the great classics, Kyoko Maruoka enjoys identifying herself with her favorite characters and illustrating their stories in cross stitch. Here are designs inspired by three of her favorite authors (Chekov, Tolstoy and Austen). While these designs are very personal interpretations, we believe they also show a lot of sensitivity to the actual characters in the novels.

Books, Quotes and Poems

 

Also very much inspired by books and poetry, Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles showcases - in cross stitch - a pile of one of her favorite author's works, incidentally also by Jane Austen. Alongside the leather bound classics is an elegant period ink well and a feather writing pen.

Further down, see more works in cross stitch, one inspired by American poet Emily Dickinson, the other by Myrtle and Rose, a beautiful poem by Goethe that goes: "Knowest thou the land where the lemon trees bloom,..."

Elegance contest

 

This is embellished cross stitch at its very best with the elegant portrait of a lady all set for some elegant event of her time. Maybe the Ascot races? Or a garden party at a country estate?

There is amazing detail in this design by Lesley Teare. Check out the fine lace mittens with beaded hem, or the delicate curve of her eyelashes with tiny dots of white adding a sparkle of life to her eyes.

All in the detail

 

Peacock & Fig animal illustrations are wonderfully detailed and exquisitely charted. The number of floss colors is never too large, yet those colors are carefully selected so as to create maximum contrast. Fine backstitch work, in gold or black, adds just enough extra detail here and there. Check out some patterns close up .

Handy cross stitch fonts

 

Like to customize your charts with text? We've got some great news!

Dana Batho of Peacock & Fig has also released two new Alphabets used for her new Spirited Animals Collection,

There are many beautiful of Alphabets available to stitchers but rarely has a designer put so much thought into designing a cross stitch font that would work for so many combinations. In fact, Dana designed them for her own use, with a lot of attention paid to the way her stitched letters worked together.

The two new alphabets include Caps and Lower case as well as a line guide so you know where to position your Caps. A detailed guide as to how to use the alphabets is also included with the charts.

Awesome stitches

 

In Lesley Teare's signature Blackwork style, here are 3 awesome pieces that have been stitched using a mix of Cross stitch and Backstitch. Look close and notice how each area of the design is filled with a different motif,  each of different levels of density resulting in distinctive shades. Brilliant!

Crazy Quilting

 

Crazy quilts became hugely popular in Victorian times and if you're lucky you might come across one at a flea market. They combine pieces of irregular shapes into a patchwork, each piece assembled to the next using a variety of embroidery stitches such a feather stitch.

This cross stitch pattern designed by Lesley Teare is inspired by those late 19th century designs. It incorporates different "printed fabric" motifs as well as many different scraps of "lace".
