Half Cross Stitch is catching on, and new projects using this time-saving technique are being created by top needlework designers.
Alice Okon created this gorgeous Summer Leaves pillow on the cover of the current (July 2011) issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework Magazine, using 5 colors of Pearl Cotton. I love the subtle colors and way the leaves dance across the center of the pillow, as if caught by a summer breeze…
And check out the Bloom project, also by Alice Okon, worked in half cross stitch using 9 colors of Pearl Cotton. This design was featured in the May 2011 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework Magazine.
