Cross Cross Cross Dot Dot Dot



These dotted butterflies are part of the Power Animal series designed by Amy (aka GirlFlamant). I absolutely love each and every pattern of that series! All animal silhouettes have their own pattern and include a fleur-de-lis owl and an houndstooth patterned Jackalope.  I'm about to start stitching a tartan Loch Ness monster! Find all Power animals (and other patterns as well) in her Etsy shop.




If you have not tried Counted Cross Stitch before (I'm very much a newbie myself) do check out the wonderful (and free!) downloadable Cross Stitch guides by Sophie of What Delilah Did. And don't forget to have a look in her shop with many gorgeous kits and patterns as well!

  1. You know I like about them...beyond the x-stitch factor...is that you have to use your imagination to see the animals, yet you get pattern, design and variation of colors that you'd wouldn't normal associate with an animal. Almost a twist on us humans using leopard in a skirt on our bodies. LOL
