Given how popular her first Tiny House series have been, the designer has designed 3 new ones: the green shutter House, the Hearts House and the Potted Trees House. Match them with the original series and you can build a complete village. Or mix them with Marie-Anne Rethorets' other cute  hanging ornaments you can now fill an entire Christmas tree with your own hand-stitched decorations, in varied shapes but matching colors!

Portrait of a Woodpecker, by Lesley Teare

 

While you may know Lesley Teare for her Cross stitch and Blackwork designs, she is also an expert birdwatcher - and it shows when she tackles the complex work of creating a portrait of a woodpecker, more often heard than seen, as it hammers a half rotten tree trunk, searching for food by chasing out surprised insects. Seen in profile, this is a wonderful portrait mixing cross stitch and a tiny touch of Blackwork.

Barbara Ana's Winged Dreams against a mountain sunset

 

We love it when we hear from a stitcher who comes up with a lovely personal interpretation of a design. It shows how stitchers really appropriate a pattern, coming up with the most brilliant ideas.

 

In this case, Nona J., having decided to stitch Barbara Ana's Winged Dreams came across a lovely Etsy shop selling printed Aida fabrics in a great variety of atmospheric backgrounds, including this colorful sunset.

 

"It had all the best colors and a oncoming night sky at the top which was perfect for tones chosen by Barbara Ana." Kindly Nona agreed to share it with us.

Underwater worlds

 

Barbara Ana's latest dreaming girl is actually a mermaid. But look closer and you will discover several surprise landscapes among the luxurious underwater life. Like all her designs, this cross stitch pattern by Barbara Ana's is a lot of fun to complete, each new part filled with wonderful surprises, stitch after stitch.

Tiny yet stylish William Morris style mini motifs

 

It's amazing how much Lesley Teare manages to incorporate into such tiny motifs. The expert designer has already tackled much larger design inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, but these tiny ones, involving full cross stitch only are proof of her talent.
