Nautilus Cross Stitched Wall Art
Nautilus Cross Stitched Wall Art
While working on my Elemental Fractal series published in A Needle Pulling Thread magazine in Issues 55 through 58, Jo became enchanted by all the fractals in nature. A nautilus shell was one of the things she considered for the water element. She ended up using a colourful coral spiral for the fractal water design featured in Issue 56, but she loved this Nautilus one so much that she was pleased to be able to offer it for this nautical-themed issue. She used the same frameless framing option described in Issue 58, offered here for your convenience. Includes material list, chart, and DIY framing instructions Finished Measurements Design size 28ct – 8”W x 8”H [20 x 20cm]

Cross Stitch Black Rose
Cross Stitch Black Rose
This design is based on a pencil sketch Jo Gatenby did for an art class. She always thought it would make a cool cross-stitch pattern, so the theme for Issue 59 gave her a chance to try it out! If you’re not a fan of black, she suggests, of course, to choose only 6 shades of your favourite colour to stitch this beauty. Select complementary colours from palest to darkest and go for it!

Market Treasures
Market Treasures
Part of the charm of this design comes from the use of layers… the background is half-stitched with a single strand of floss making it very soft and faded in the background, while the tissue paper is full-stitched with a single strand of floss, so the colors are still soft… then the flowers themselves are stitched with 3 strands, to really make them stand out, with deep rich colours!
