Indian Brave

Now that folks are beginning to receive copies of Cross Stitch Gold issue 75, you will also see a preview of the Indian Brave  coming in the next issue, number 76. Yes, the Indian Maiden does have a partner! Stitched on the same beautiful ‘Earth’ hand dyed Jobelan from Polstitches he is also embellished with lovely metallics and beads. Please note that in the magazine Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads were used on both designs. If you would like to add an extra touch of elegance, I suggest trying Mill Hill Magnifica Beads for two of the colors. Stay with 02038, but for 02022 use 10028, and for 02088 use 10079. These  beads have an extra sparkle and a jewel-like delicacy that is perfect for these two  designs.

    A fantastic pair of designs Joan, I am going to need a few extra pairs of hands at this rate to keep up with all your designs that I want to stitch. So pleased you have included a wolf with the Indian Brave.

    I love both of the Indians. I know I can’t wait to get my hands on both of them. Just have to find the time to stitch them. Thanks for all your wonderful designs.

    How can I get a copy of your Indian Brave & Indian Maiden patterns? I have looked online for months for a copy of Cross Stitch Gold May 2010 (Issue #75 &76) and have had no luck. Can you help me?
