Hokusai Lilies free cross stitch pattern

Hokusai Lilies free cross stitch pattern by Happy Stitch

This is the third pattern that is based on the works of the great Japanese ukiyo-e master Katsushika Hokusai. But today I chose not the Fuji mountain view, but rather a beautiful still life picture of yellow lilies.

The pattern is not too big, and uses a very limited amount of colos, as well as only full cross stitches (no back stitches), so you can try to work with it even if you are not too experienced. 🙂

Two cross stitch pattern for bookmarks (summer and winter)

Today I made two nice and easy bookmark patterns: one with sweet violet flowers and the other with blue snowflakes. And it somehow dawned it me as I was writing that post, that next time I should do Autumn and Spring bookmarks to go with today’s Summer and Winter. 🙂

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.
