Barbara Ana's psychedelic World

 

Is this a tree? A flower? A single globular eye? No, it's a neuron, at least seen through Barbara Ana's very creative mind. It comes in the most cheerful sunny colours, emphasized by the dark background. A firework of colors in a jungle of exotic flowers and mysterious shapes.

Barbara Ana's irresistible urge to stitch

 

Here's a new piece by Barbara Ana straight out of her imaginative mind. Why did she create it? Well she just felt the urge... Oversize mushroom, exotic flowers and fruit flow out of a doll shaped vase. And looking inside you will discover a lilliputian landscape with tiny houses clutching every hill. Perfectly balanced, full of rich colors and entertaining detail, a real treat to cross stitch.

Amazing colors for this summer pattern by Barbara Ana, combining a terracotta fabric and a unique contrast of blue and brick. Order reigns on the left side of the pattern but in the shaded part, hair flows with the wind, morphing into waves with tiny sailboats and fish tossed about. Maybe a taste of what dreams are made of....

Seasonal companion

 

Following in the footsteps of Barbara Ana's Spring cat, here is its new companion, the Summer cat. Both are elegantly dressed in tight wasted ballooning dresses that form an "image within the image". It's amazing the amount of detail the designer has managed to fit into this bay view, with a clever use of light where distant sailboats and hot-air balloons only appear as silhouettes against the scorching sun.

Colorful and whimsical as ever, Barbara Ana's Spring Cat is spreading her arms as if bearing an arch of flowers. She is wearing a crinoline shaped dress that blends into a countryside scene with oversize dandelion seeds blowing in the wind.

Retrofuturistic Fashion

 

Enjoy the ride! Barbara Ana takes you onto another wild and whimsical ride, combining her interest into weird trends - Steampunk anyone? and her own favorite leitmotifs (hat and sunglasses a late addition). Each new design seems to be moving on from the previous, always with an interesting tweak. Here the background fabric, evocative of steam plays an important role in the design.

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!

 

A delightful new Christmas cross stitch pattern by Barbara Ana, portraying her favorite in Santa's awesome team of reindeer. Lady Dancer is pictured wearing a warm woolen sweater, red of course. Powdery snow is falling from her antlers where a tiny village is nested. The date 1823 featured in the cross stitch medallion refers to the year the author of the poem, Clement Clarke Moore, wrote the story initially titled A Visit from St. Nicholas.

Portrait of a lady

 

Lady squirrel seems to be posing for a painting, actually a cross stitch pattern by Barbara Ana. We love the contrast between the aqua blue of the dress and the natural colors. The light variations in color of the dress are achieved through the use of a nuanced thread from the DMC Color Variations range.

A dreaming Girl in a different light

 

Talking of another dreaming girl, we received from Nona J. this wonderful picture of her Dreaming girl reappearing as Peter Pan's Wendy Darling. We love it when stitchers reinterpret and reappropriate a design. Nona switched background colors,  which gives the piece a very different look, and accompanied her piece with a quote from Peter Pan: "Second Star to the Right, then Straight on till Morning". 


The alphabet that she chose to be "Pan-worthy" is from a Better Homes and Gardens hardcover book of "Alphabets and Borders", page 151, "Elegant Swerve Alphabet".

This is not Nona's first reinterpretation of a Barbara Ana Design. She also turned Dreaming of Klimt into the Queen of Sheba (check her out in Barbara Ana's news section below)



Fiery Night

 

An amazing tribute by Barbara Ana to impressionnist 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, brighlty 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."
