Ninjas & princesses

 

Set sail for the land of the rising sun with this gallery of cross stitch characters, heroes of Japan's most popular legends. A ninja, a princess, but also the characters of the old monk and the young priest (the latter recognizable by his bamboo broom), or the aristocrat of the imperial court, disguised as a peasant travelling the country incognito. Check our stories for each character. Design by Kyoko Maruoka (GERA!).

Anne of Green Gables is back

 

Kyoko Maruoka of GERA! has now dedicated a third design to one of her beloved books, Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. You can now stitch Anne's surroundings - the farmhouse and barn, as well as her friends house, the church and schoolhouse. As a clever finishing idea, the stitched piece is turned into a bookcover and bookmark.

Lifestyles

 

Full of humor and fun detail, this design by GERA! Kyoko Maruoka contrasts an urban and connected lifestyle, with a cozy and relaxed style of the countryside. We just love the Andy Warhol "Campbell soup" poster on the wall of the city mouse, and the bottle of coke on the desk.

Cross stitch story telling

GERA! designer Kyoko Maruoka turns well beloved folktales into beautiful little needlework gems. Her work is full of poetry, nature always making its way into her work. Check out the fun row of flowers alternating with turnips or the blissfully unaware partridges about to be trampled upon by the cat in extravagant boots.

Patchwork Style assembly

 

It's a great idea to assemble small motifs patchwork style. The big advantage is that it allows you to cross stitch on a variety of colors backgrounds, in this case, 4 different colors of Permin linen.

There are two golden rule to follow though: squares must be cut exactly to the same size and the embroidery perfectly centered.

Zooming into nature

 

Well, of course this design tells the tale of Thumbelina, and the miniature girl's close up encounters with toads, cockchafers and the like. But isn't it also an invitation to zoom in ourselves and take a stroll in this miniature world, so poetically depicted by Kyoko Maruoka of GERA!.

In spite of everything....

 

It's not every day that a cross stitch designer decides to tackle such a painful subject, so let's salute the work of Kyoko Maruoka, who, with utmost delicacy, pays tribute to Anne Frank, telling both the hope and horrors of war. A design in tribute to a young girl who did not have time to live, but continues to inspire ...

Heart-felt feelings, in stitches

 

The two designs that follow are inspired by Lucy M. Montgomery's novel, "Anne of Green Gables".

The book tells of the confused feelings and emotions of Anne, a young orphan, as she starts her new life at the farm. Kyoko Maruoka depicts two early highlights of the novel, in very expressive embroidery designs.

The first piece shows Anne discovering the power of prayer in a very personal way.

 5 Matryoshka dolls, each with a little surprise inside

 

Kyoko Maruoka, the designer of GERA! has just brought out a new collection of matryoska. There are 5 in this set and each of them serves as a different needlework accessory. The smallest of the dolls houses a needle-threader, also acting as a fob. The medium doll opens in the shape of butterfly wings, to neatly store needles, and so on ... The finishing touches are superb: the work of a real pro!
