Exquisite needlework

 

Expertly designed by Dana Batho of Peacock & Fig, the Royal Proclamation Collection, is a wonderful demonstration of the power of cross stitch to render in stitches the dazzling effects of precious metals and gemstones, using a simple combination of solid color floss, metallics and seed beads on a fabric background. Quite a feat we believe on the part of the designer, and worth every cross stitch on the part of the stitcher. These pieces are simply gorgeous. Check out the lovely detail of these cross stitched pieces.

We must admit, at Creative Poppy we have a particular fancy for overdyed and multicolor threads. And there is no better season to enjoy those colors than autumn, when the splendid colors of foliage invite us to a festival of colors. If you enjoy cross stitching with overdyed or variegated floss, such as DMC Color Variations, Classic Colorworks or Dinky Dyes Silk, to name just a few, you might be interested to check out the following link:

Blooming Girl

 

An exceptional cross stitch series by Japanese designer Kyoko Maruoka of GERA! Each embroidered portrait is a slice of life, with the young girl prey to reverie, at the fragile turning point when one is no longer a child, not quite yet a woman. These creations are inspired by  Osamu Dazai 's novel, The schoolgirl.

The Golden Apple

 

A pretty Russian folktale, a golden apple, a firebird that comes at night  to steal the apple, a Russian prince who goes off in search of the firebird  ... all good reasons to embark on the journey stitching this sumptuous and colorful piece.

Did you know Creative Poppy also offers chart packs?

 

Creative Poppy patterns are available as downloadable pattern files. However, if you would like to receive professionally printed charts, we can also deliver your charts directly to your mail box.

 

This is ideal if you don't want to bother with downloading and printing your files, or if you can't obtain best quality print-outs at home. Also it's nice to have a beautiful chart you can archive.

 

What you get:

- Professionally printed color charts on beautiful extra smooth paper. Each chart is packaged individually in a sleeve.

- Chart packs are shipped in a strong flat box so they reach you in perfect state.

 

>> find out about our Shipping by Mail service

 

By the way, you still get your downloadable chart. So you can source your supplies while you wait for the postman, you can print out working copies that can be used for highlighting while stitching.
