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.

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.
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?!
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!
I am so excited to show off our new christmas trees in cross stitch kits, patterns or charts. They are modern and abstract designs, I am sure you will love them. They are something different to what you are used to, they will definitely look fantastic in a modern home.
