Water Goddess Preview

At last! I am so excited to be showing you the first design in my new series for Cross Stitch Collection: The Water Goddess from The Four Goddesses of the Elements. She’s stitched on beautiful Shimmering Seas 28HPI Jobelan from Polstitches… how appropriate! She will be in the March Issue, 181, on sale in the UK February 12th, a bit later elsewhere. The Project Floss and Embellishment List is posted to the right, Enjoy!

    Oh Joan you have done it again! How absolutely stunning and beautiful. I can’t wait for my magazine to arrive. I’d love to start stitching this but The Reader medieval lady must be finished first – I must be strict I tell myself, but it’s like being a kid in a candy store with all of these stunning designs to do. Maybe I could convince my husband that I don’t need to work so I can stay at home and stitch all day! (You are like the goddess standing tall above sprinkling your magic dust over us minions below who succumb to your will and eagerly stitch your designs or fall to the wayside LOL) 🙂

    I saw the preview in my latest edition of Cross Stitch Collection and if this is anything to go by the whole series will be fabulous. Another must stitch. Keep up the excellent work Joan, I adore your designs and they are really enjoyable to stitch.

    I can’t wait to see the rest of this collection! If you release them as charts that would be awesome, as I live in Australia and Cross Stitch Collection, while available here, isn’t released very…reliably. Besides, I end up paying $13 for one single pattern in the magazine most times. I’m pretty fussy.

    Ive just started learning to crosstitch. I actually found the spring fairy pattern on the floor in barnes and Noble here in alabama. It says that I need a 28 count Polystitch hand dyed linen
    fairy footprints 45x55cm. Where do i get this?? I also saw the glorious
    water Goddess pattern and wonder where i can get it and the items that go with it. Can you help me. thank you so much. I think we will have a long wonderful relationship and one day my wall will be filled with beautiful fairies and Godesses that i have stitched with my own little fingers!
