CROSS STITCH PATTERN, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
An invitation by Barbara Ana to relax and medidate, and to let you mind wander deep into the universe.
This cross stitch design is in two parts.
The lower part shows a girl in a yoga pose, head upright, arms open at elbow level, holding a moon-like shape in one hand and, in the other, a strange ball that looks like it is emitting some sort of wave or signal. Golden clouds float in the background.
From the face up, her features blend into a sort of spacial void, as if her body and mind were disolving into the cosmos.
The cross stitch piece appears to be sprinkled with gold, yet this effect is obtained exclusively through the choice of colors, with golden hues contrasting against the darker colors (no metallics). We love the way the universe is pictured in a ball above the head, with planets and stars floating in a colorful interstellar atmosphere
The background fabric color can be any of your choice. The stitched design pictured here was worked on 25ct navy Lugana from Zweigart, but other dark colors are also suitable (see last picture).
Together with the big sister, they can be stitched as a pair.
