The Dreaming Girl grows Wings

 

Initially introduced in steps as an SAL, this design is now available as a whole pattern. Part of the amazing Dreaming girl series, she has grown colorful wings and turned into a butterfly. In between her delicate antenna is a tiny hat carrying her sunshades.

Travels with a donkey

 

This turn of the century French sampler, part of Meriem Chauvet's private collection, features a very attractive alphabet with ornate letters and a donkey motif, actually from an existing Sajou chart published decades earlier. Of particular interest is the use of double running stitch outlining some motifs in a contrasting color, in order to provide extra emphasis. A cross stitch reproduction sampler from Couleur Tourterelle.

Fiery Night

 

An amazing tribute by Barbara Ana to impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh and his world-known Starry night. The designer manages to recreate in cross stitch the movement, colors and vision of the tormented artist, blending in her own images, brightly lit homes and a dreaming girl with hair raising like flames.

Dreaming of Klimt - revisited as the Queen of Sheba

 

We love it when a stitcher is inspired by a pattern, and turns it into a unique work. Here is a wonderful idea shared by Nona J. who was inspired by one of Barbara Ana's designs:

 

"I tried a couple of variations with Klimt.  I stitched on a 7 ct. aida so she would look kind of like a tapestry.  As I worked, I wanted to give her an identity, so she became the queen of Sheba.  It is very imperfect and looks coarse from the 7 ct., but I like the way it reflects Klimpt's own contrasting quirks....using precious, fine gold, yet painting in unpredictable blocks of color.  I also used a shiny rayon thread for jewel tones and after watching a documentary on Klimt, painting over gold leaf, I infused quite a bit of metallic gold thread.  Just thought you'd enjoy a glimpse.  It's not perfect, but I love her.  Happy creating, Nona J."

Kateryna - Stitchy Princess Cross stitch pattern logo

 

Introducing New Designer

Kateryna, for Stitchy Princess

 

We are both proud and moved to be presenting the work of Ukrainian designer Kateryna, designing under the Stitchy Princess brand.

 

Kateryna, lives in Ukraine, and contacted us at the beginning of the war, when her country had just been invaded. She was on the front line and we were more than happy to help. In spite of erratic internet connections, we worked hard together to get her designs up and going on our website, and here we are! We just pray that Kateryna and her loved ones stay safe. We find her incredibly brave to keep designing and working in the terrible circumstances she is going through.

 

We are however also very proud to be presenting Kateryna's work for its own sake, as we are with all other designers Creative Poppy publishes. Indeed, on top of her fertile imagination and creativity, we find Katheryna has achieved what every true designer aims for, developping a cross stitch style of her own.

Now it's for you stitchers to judge for yourselves.

SITUATION IN UKRAINE:

Due to the war, and in particular the situation in designer's home town, we are providing as much support as possible, and will be donating an extra $1 for each pattern sold through Creative Poppy's website.

You can help too by spreading the word about Kateryna's designs.  Thank you!


In the manner of a vintage postcard

 

As if it were an antique black and white photograph, this pattern shows the arrival in Chamonix of the first tourists, who came to admire the French Alps and Mont Blanc and discover its awesome glacier. The Gentlemen and Ladies' clothes were not really adapted - women in heels and long dresses - but the local mountaineers equipped them with ropes and guided them on the glacier.

The cross stitch pattern depicts the mountain landscape and the group with clearly distinguishable silhouettes. A cross stitch chart designed by Monique Bonnin.

A mirror between two worlds

 

The world is upside down in this very creative and colorful cross stitch design by Barbara Ana. The Little Mermaid languishes in her underwater kingdom, fish swimming in the waters above her head. The other world that attracts the little mermaid so much is pictured through a magnificent solar motif, which appears sealed and inaccessible to her.

Two new reproduction Samplers

 

Over 150 years ago, two young girls, one living in rural France, the other in Flanders, complete their sampler.

Marie Joséphine, no doubt the youngest of the two, carefully reproduces the letters her elders have taught her. By contrast, Catherine Elisabeth is already 16 years old. The central motif of her work is the biblical scene of Adam & Eve. Most interesting however is the bird cage on the right, a symbol of marriage (see detail on pattern page). Other motifs include a cradle and more domestic items. No doubt the young stitcher already had marriage in mind.

Both patterns are from Meriem Chauvet's private collection of antique samplers and the Couleur Tourterelle reproduction charts are exact replicas of the originals.

Girl's Beach Fashion, then and now

 

Perrette Samouiloff pictures little girls of yore (top part in navy), all pretty and dressed up for a trip to the seaside, striding along the beach with spade and bucket, holding on to their straw hats in the wind. Nowadays too (lower part in lighter blue) little girls still enjoy dressing up for the beach, still holding on to their hats in the wind.

Two new reproduction samplers by Couleur Tourterelle

 

From Meriem Chauvet's private collection here are two antique works reproduced in perfectly identical cross stitch charts. The antique samplers are still in their original frame. The first one stitched in woollen threads - bright wool colors having just been introduced thanks to innovations in dyes, and both are stitched on canvas, also an innovation of the time making it easier to stitch than linen, an ancestor of sorts of Aida fabric.

Tracing back the origins of the motifs

 

What makes both these designs particularly interesting is that Meriem Chauvet has been able to trace back the origins of some of the motifs used by the stitchers.

In the case of Zélie, the stitcher picked four of her motifs from the 1852 issue of a women's fashion magazine of the time, "Le magasin des familles". The magazine was in black and white but included some extra sheets, one of them a color cross stitch chart, quite innovative too for the times. No doubt each issue of the magazine was preciously preserved in each household as this sampler was only stitched 20 years later.

In the case of B. Marsallat, two of the motifs, the running dog and the beehive were picked in separate Sajou catalogues. Those charts were monochrome.

A beautiful perspective effect

 

This stunning perspective effect with a garland of shamrock disappearing into the distance is achieved by a clever combination of cross stitch and Stumpwork. Indeed designer Faby Reilly only works the closer leaves in cross stitch, working the further ones in Stumpwork, combining satin stitch and felt for a padded effect. The chart includes an excellent tutorial. An expert level design suitable for an experienced cross stitcher looking for a bit of challenge.

Architecture and Styles

 

Designed by Lesley Teare, here are two new samplers paying tribute to different architectural styles.

The first one to late 18th century England when Georgian architectural changed the face of town and country. Four stately homes are pictured in the all-season sampler.

The second sampler is a tribute to the Shaker style of living and features the characteristic dwellings of Shaker communities established in North America.

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.
