Owl cross stitch


Who doesn't like stitching owls? Well, I have been designing owls in cross stitch lately and I have finished stitching my latest design which is an owl with swirls.

It was stitched on 16 count aida and it has full stitches only. It is not difficult to stitch - it took me about a week, a few hours every evening.

The design is available to purchase from our online store with an option of a complete cross stitch kit or the pattern alone. The link to the owl in swirls is here: Owl cross stitch

Turtle cross stitch

I have just finished stitching a modern swirly turtle. It is stitched on 16 count aida with whole/full stitches only and it has 8 colours. It isn't a difficult design, it took me a couple of weeks to finish but I only stitched about an hour each evening.

I have used Madeira threads, I love Madeira threads they are very strong and shiny.

The design is available at my shop as a kit or pattern alone, you can find it here: Turtle cross stitch kit, pattern, chart

Heart cross stitch




I have finished stitching a lovely swirly heart. A few tiny mistakes here and there but one can't tell as the design is supposed to be modern/abstract/swirly :-)

I have used 16 count aida, it is all whole/full stitches and there is only one colour, red. I have enjoyed stitching it.

The design is available for purchase at my shop and you can get the whole kit which includes the chart, fabric of your choice, needle, threads and instructions. Or you can get the pattern by post or email.

Hope you like it.

Abstract cross stitch










I have created a new section in my website for abstract designs. I think people are getting very interested in stitching something different, something unique and modern. Abstract cross stitch is becoming very popular. Why buy an abstract poster when you can stitch it yourself?!

Christmas tree modern cross stitch


I have just finished a swirly Christmas tree! This is my own design, a very modern and unusual Christmas tree. I stitched it on a 16 count aida as this fabric makes the stitches more dense. It took me 3 evenings to stitch it, which is not too bad if one wants to stitch a Christmas tree fast!

The design is available in my website for a complete kit or a pattern for download or post. If you like it, please share!

Happy stitching everyone
