It’s been over a year since I have last worked on a cross stitch. I was getting itchy to do one again so off I went to look for patterns. It seems like the ones you usually see around in the craft stores are the Dimension brand. There weren’t really any ones in their lineup that I wanted to do so I decided to look for something else. Something different. Something exciting. Okay, if you don’t like cross stitch in the first place it will never be exciting (Jessica).
I ended up finding the brand Lanarte which had two Art Nouveau kits in their lineup. Only thing was I couldn’t find these particular two kits in a store that was in the U.S. There are only a couple of stores in the U.S., that I found online, which sell the Lanarte brand to start with. So I ended up ordering them from a place in the U.K. called Arts and Designs. I was actually expecting it to take quite a while to ship to me. On the contrary, today I got the package in the mail with Royal Mail postage on it. Now I just have to decide which one to start on first. When both the ladies are finished they should go well with the eventual Arts and Craft style of the house.
