CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Gera! by Kyoko Maruoka
Here's Early Spring, a cross stitch design by Gera! by Kyoko Maruoka featuring a white horse against a background with a stricking blue skye sprinkled with stars and a carpet of meadow flowers.
Inspired by Russian folk-art, the motif is extremely colorful, with stricking colors from the DMC embroidery floss range.
The pattern is entirely stitched, with all the white parts filled in white floss. You could therefore easily use the chart for a counted needlepoint/tapestry project. Alternatively, cross stitchers could opt for the Assisi technique of not filling the white, so as to create a dimensional effect.
Anyway you decide to stitch this project, it will look smashing whether framed in a deep white frame ((photo) or used for the top of a box or a wallet shaped pouch.
