When I found these illustrations from some vintage magazine, I absolutely fell in love with them. But then I stored images away in a very deep and uncategorized folder on my computer and forgot all about it. Only a couple of days ago, when Holly posted a comment on my Lady Iris pattern I remembered that I had something vintage and chic to convert to cross stitch pattern in mind 🙂 So today’s pattern is an adaptation from an old fashion magazine.

Today’s free cross stitch pattern is an easy 13-color adaptation of a beautiful ukiyo-e work by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai Mount Fuji Seen Through Cherry Blossom. It has been on my to-do list for several months, and I’m really glad to finally post it here 🙂
It is the fourth Hokusai pattern that I have done by far, two of which are with Mount Fuji prints. The previous patterns are Lilies, Inume Pass, Kōshū, and Fine Wind, Clear Morning (Red Fuji).

Hi everybody! I didn’t post anything yesterday, but today I’m making up for it and posting yet another flower pattern. It is based on a Victorian drawing of a pink rose, and is a great addition to my collection of vintage flower patterns.

Last time I counted my patterns and decided that this is going to be the #100 – but today I found out that I actually already made over a hundred different cross stitch patterns. Seems like someone here is not good at counting…. 🙂
Pinners welcome! 🙂 Don’t hesitate to repin this chart to your Pinterest boards. Continue reading
When I found this photo, I instantly wanted to turn it into a cross stitch pattern. Though I’m not a big fan of roses, being more into something simpler, like peonies, chrysanthemums or sunflowers, this particular rose is very nice and tender.
Use a darker shade of canvas for more effect.
The pattern itself is quite similar to my earlier Lotus flower chart.

There’s something magical about doors, as if sometimes a door is a gate to another world or dimension. The most beautiful doors that I’ve seen so far were in Tunisia and in Ireland. Tunisian doors are usually deep blue in color and covered with ornaments or carvings, while Irish doors like to be on the bright side and make an amazing contrast to green-and-gray reality around them.
Anyway, today’s chart is yet another door, straight from the Italian province of Tuscany (the one with great olive oil and even better wine). The door itself may be quite common, but I love the flowers around in and lots of different greens in the overall picture.
