We are delighted to be able to bring you a new range of cross stitch designs. They have been created from Ellen Negley originals. We are very happy to be working with Ellen, a popular and talented Florida artist. We think her work captures the colour, warmth and vibrancy of tropical life and would brighten up a wall or corner in any house, anywhere in the world.
They are Extra Large designs and have been created to capture the beauty of the original watercolour artwork and to allow you to stitch a real talking point for your home. They measure 30 inches/76cm wide and, as such are definitely more of a challenging project than some. They are not complicated, as they only contain whole cross stitch and no back stitch so are suitable for ambitious beginners, but to create the multidimensional watercolour finish they use 100 colours. It’s important to realise the scale of these projects and to recognise that they’re not a quick make but we personally believe it’s definitely worth the time. They would make perfect pieces of art for your walls – either for yourself, or for anyone who loves Florida and the warmth, vibrancy and joy contained in Ellen’s paintings.
