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".

Alice in Wonderland - Extraordinary characters

 

Also new from Gera! 2 portraits and 3 miniatures depicting in cross stitch Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland's fictional characters.

Here's a review:

 

Alice

Alice is a well behaved and courteous - but wildly curious - little girl that goes on a fantastic adventure when she falls into a rabbit hole. She is always pictured by GERA! with a black ribbon in her hair, a blue dress and impeccably white apron.
Part of Alice in Wonderland portraits

The White Rabbit

He appears at the begging of the book and Alice follows him into the rabbit hole. he is always in a hurry, mutternig: ""Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!". GERA! pictures him elegantly dressed in a waistcoat and holding a pocket watch.

Part of Alice in Wonderland miniatures

The (Hookah-Smoking) Caterpillar

Alice meets the Caterpillar in a wonderful garden. He is smoking a sort of pipe. She doesn't like him at first because he ignores her. Then he asks her short and rather rude questions. GERA! portraits the caterpillar in vivid bright colors and making rings of smoke.
Detail of The caterpillar

The (mad) Hatter

When Alice meets the Hatter he is drinking tea, having been sentenced by the Queen of Hearts to be stuck in time and the permanent state of having tea. He plays tricks and makes riddles. GERA! pictures him with a bow tie and top hat with a card hidden in it. He is holding a teapot with the Dormouse inside.
Part of Alice in Wonderland portraits

The (mad) Hatter cross stitch pattern by GERA! by Kyoko Maruoka, zoom 1

 

The Queen of Hearts

The Queen of Hearts is a foul-tempered monarch reigning over Wonderland and quick to deliver sentences at the slight offence. GERA! pictures her with a face deformed by rage.

Part of Alice in Wonderland miniatures

The Cheshire cat

The main feature of the Cheshire cat is its devilish grin. The cat vanishes, its whole body disappearing except for the evil grin. GERA! pictures the cat as a purple and turquoise striped cat with green and orange eyes. Alice is riding on its back in the Cheshire cat miniature and holding the cat in her arms in her own portrait.

Part of Alice in Wonderland miniatures

The Cheshire cat cross stitch pattern by GERA! Kyoko Maruoka, zoom 1

 

The (sleepy) Dormouse

The smallest of all, the eternally sleepy dormouse is used as a cushion while the March Hare and Hatter have tea. At one point they put him in a tea-pot. GERA! pictures him sticking its head out of the teapot, with little pink ears and blue whiskers.

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.

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 for instance, and finally you can use your ipad to zoom into details while stitching.
