Wild Flower Garden Cross Stitch
by Kazuko Aoki
available at the workroom
I am obsessing over cross stitch right now. It’s something I’ve always been really interested in, but haven’t officially learned. I’m working on changing that! I’ve ordered a line of Japanese embroidery floss called Cosmo (over 400 colours!) for the workroom and once that arrives we’ll be launching an Intro to Cross Stitch class. Yay!!
In the meantime, I’m doing lots of ‘research’ and pre-planning for future projects. When I came across this book, I ordered it right away for the shop. (and grabbed a copy for myself!) It is filled with page after page of gorgeous cross stitch flower designs and projects. I am imagining cross stitching these happy floral designs during the cold winter and feeling cheered up by creating a stitched garden scene.
Speaking of cross stitch and general cute-ness… I wanted to let you know about Amanda & Ashleigh’s new shop for cross stitch and quilt-y patterns. The shop is called ‘The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery‘. The shop just launched and I am really excited to make these patterns. Cross stitched candy corn in halloween costumes?!! TOO cute. Their holiday patterns are coming soon and I can’t wait to see what they are.

What a beautiful book! I remember doing a lot of cross-stitching when I was younger. I anticipate seeing your creations in future posts.
Straight to the top of my want list! Thanks for sharing.
I can’t wait to take this class!
I can’t wait to take this class and get that book!
I want in this class! I just started a cross stitch and it is less than impressive looking. I think I need professional guidance.
i used to love to cross stitch scandinavian designs on linen.
I should show you the book next time I visit the workroom.
I just got that book last month and I’m officially addicted. It’s so great to see awesome cross-stitch that isn’t hokey and country cute!
LOVE the patterns! I may have to add that to my Christmas wish list! (and when I say ‘may’ I mean I might have to give in and get it before then 🙂
Sign me up!!! I saw the book in the shop last weekend and thought, boy, I wish someone could just teach me how to do it:)
[…] 9, 10, 11 and 12 of Stitch Idées at the workroom. Also, we received more copies of the beautiful Wild Flower Cross Stitch book. Now, if only those pretty Cosmo embroidery threads would get […]
Oh man, I am so digging these! xo
I have a little Q about the book. Does it come with the embroidery templates as well that can be used or is it an inspiration book?
