Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forest of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
Oh well, it seems the kitty doesn’t want belly rubs right now 🙂 But he still stays one of my favorite wild animals – so today I made a Growling Tiger pattern out of a photo found somewhere on the Internet. I did my best, but the chart still uses 50 colors, so I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners or for impatient crafters like myself.
Stitch count: 150w x 141h , 50 colors.

Did you know? Contrary to the popular belief, the tiger is the biggest wild cat, even bigger than the lion.
If there is something that I love more than music or craft, then it is cats without any doubt. The Jazz Cat pattern combined music, cats and crafts together 🙂 This chart of a gray bass playing cat is based on my own original drawing (actually this tom is the first one of the series of musical cats that I wanted to draw).
Stitch count: 94w x 117h Stitches, 9 colors . Ideal for beginners due to limited amount of colors and easy cartoon style.

Today I’m adding to the collection of Mayan-inspired cross-stitch charts. The idea of this collection is heavily inspired by Mayan calendars and symbols. As an ages-old symbol of eternity the snake on this pattern is biting its tail.
You can stitch this chart with yarn to make a cushion or with cotton DMC thread to make a small ornament.

A nice realistic green snake on this cross stitch pattern is based on a photo from the web. It is the second snake dedicated to the coming Year of the Snake (see also the cartoon snake in the previous post). The pattern is moderately big and uses 25 different colors.
