A New Design

Just coming out in the newest issue, #75, of Cross Stitch Gold is my Native American Maiden. Anyone that has my Native American Cross Stitch book from David & Charles already knows how I love working with this theme. When Cross Stitch Gold proposed this commission I was thrilled to revisit it. The background scene is stitched in one strand to give an ethereal quality to the landscape and the gentle figure of the maiden is embellished with metallic threads and beads in traditional Native American colors.

I have some new things to show you from World of Cross Stitching too and will post  them within the next day or so. Back to the drawing board for now…
