All 5 geoemtric animal embroidery patterns are now available as a bundle. The patterns are very simple to do and beginner friendly. But what to do with so many patterns? Hanging embroidered pictures on the walls is not for everybody, so embellish the back of a nice shirt, embroider a cloth bag, a sports bag or the old-fashioned cushion cover. There are so many possibilities! Jana shared a beautiful example of how to apply embroidery to everyday objects here, take a look :)

Continueing the geometric animals series, here comes the rabbit - or easter bunny. This one is a really really fast embroidery project. Like the others it's stitched in running stitch using pearl cotton and then threaded on the outline, nose and eyes.
I could imagine this for easter decoration but in a kid's room, too. So much bunny literature out there to match the theme.
Here are the rabbit's geometric pals:
Here comes a new embroidery pattern: the geometric bear. Like the geometric lion it's worked in running stitch and threaded running stitch in perle cotton. It's the perfect beginner project - fast and easy to do!
At the beginning of every project there is an idea. Sometimes it cirles around my head a long time before I have a clear vision of it, sometimes I can start right away. The project I'm working on right now is one of those long term ideas. The drawing you see above is from 2013. The day I made this sketch I also painted a large painting from it with acrylic paint - in 4 hours. When you are in the zone you just HAVE to paint - nothing else is of interest. Phases like these are so productive it's hard to believe later on how you made it in such a short time.
The theme with the mountain and the crystals and the stars never let go of me. The painting is sitting on the sideboard the living room so I see......
The Kristall pattern is a beginner friendly 2-stitch-pattern. It's entirely done in chain stitch and stem stich. The pattern comes in two sizes (12.5x8.33cm/4.9x3.28inch and 17x11.36cm/6.69x4,47inch) and needs 5 basic colors to be created.
Whenever I feel a little bit stuck with my work (the I-don't-know-where-to-start-so-I-look-at-it-from-every-angle-everytime-of-the-day-and-wonder-what-to-do-first kind of stuck) I get back into the saddle easier by starting something new. Something that was lingering in my mind for months. I have to admit, that I was scared off by this geometric animal thing. I don't know why, but some nasty voice in my heard always told me I wasn't good enough at drawing to pull that kind of thing off. After reading a nice essay yesterday, I decided to take the (actually small) leap and give it a try. I absolutely love the look of animals looking straight in your eyes, so that was settled and the lion as a motif was sort of a courage thing, if you know what I mean ;)...
There are some color combinations which I'm very fond of one of which is teal and pink and the other one is yellow and pink. Combined to teal-pink-yellow thie sweet little cross stitch comes out. Compared with the other 3 pieces in this series it is so cheery and round. No need to say I like it a lot!
I made another piece in the geometric embroidery theme. This time it's a fire and ice set of colors. I like matching orange and blue, it makes both colors shine a lot more than they would individually.
The other 2 pieces I made for this series are here and here.
