Sisterhood, celebrated in stitches

 

Picture those little girls as you stitch, two sisters, close in age, maybe twins, sitting side by side with their work on their lap. They pick their yarns from the same sewing box. Each one is inspired by what the other is stitching, yet determined to do her own thing. Ideas flow, more motifs are cross stitched....

When completed, the two sisters' samplers are assembled into a single one, a lovely idea by Barbara Ana.

Surprise visit

 

If you're very quiet and you look carefully, you might spot these winter visitors. The squirrel looks a bit startled, the birds continue to happily gorge on berries, and a pair of white rabbits look at each other, as if figuring what to do next.

An alphabet is encased in the center of the pattern but you can easily customize you work and replace it with your own text. This delicate piece is designed by Perrette Samouiloff and stitched using a gorgeous range of DMC Variations floss.

Darning stitch revisited, with a contemporary twist

 

Who would have thought a forgotten old stitch could look so elegant and contemporary? That's counting without Agnès Delage's sense of style and creativity. Picking the simple darning stitch as the object of her study, she jazzes it up and turns it into these graceful and decorative "Etudes".

Boudoir style cushion

 

With its soft muted tones and classic elegance, here's the perfect cushion for a classy, chic home. We like the contrast between the textile motif and the colored square in the background which gives it a contemporary touch. This cushion is brought to you by Gracewood Stitches and is part of the Vintage textiles collection.

Home deco idea: This design can easily be turned into several cushions. Why not stitch a trio in three base colors, simply substituting the pink for mint green in one and light Scandinavian blue for the other?

Feminine with classy elegance, the French Boudoir style is making a comeback in home decor. A baroque armchair, gilded mirror, lights with crystal ornament drops, lush upholstery, plenty of comfortable cushions, it doesn't take much to make a cosy "boudoir style" retreat in a corner of your home. Here's a selection of needlework projects that will complement it perfectly.

Stitching with overdyed and multicolor embroidery floss colorsStitching with nature's colors

Using overdyed and multicolor floss

 

 

Maybe fall is the best season to truly appreciate the fantastic colors that nature  brings us and that inspire all artists, including of course needlework designers. 

 

No color is uniform in nature. Thanks to overdyed and multicolor threads, we cross stitchers can achieve some outstanding effects, coloring in our blank canvas and adding just that extra variation in tone that makes our stitched piece so much more vibrant. 

 

Tackling these threads is not as easy as it seems though. We've given those threads quite a bit of though, exploring ways our designers have taken  advantage of the color properties of the multicolor and overdyed threads. Check the article below exploring 5 ways to tackle those beautiful overdyed and multicolor threads.

 

>> tips and tricks for stitching with multicolor and overdyed threads

 

Now put these fun tricks and methods into practice with this selection of beautiful designs for fall

cross stitch kokeshi doll used as a charm on a bag

Kokeshi dolls - new pics

 

 

We've just received these pictures and we couldn't resist posting it them our website. They both feature one of the little kokeshi dolls designed in cross stitch by Kyoko Maruoka (GERA!). The photos were taken by a stitcher who loves to collect kokeshi and tells us she just had to have this one.

 

 

The picture on the right shows the kokeshi used as a charm on a little red purse. So cute!

 

 

A collection of kokeshi dolls (antique, modern, cross stitch)

Close up on little cross stitched kokeshi doll

 

The stitcher has an extensive collection of antique and modern kokeshi dolls. The pictures (left) show her largest kokeshi doll (an antique doll 18 inch high), together with a modern medium size one she made herself (painted on wood) and the tiny cute cross stitch one. Quite a family!
