Overview

Mini Cross Stitch by Michael Powell

Michael Powell provides twenty mini cross stitch designs, each accompanied by a full-colour chart, key and general instructions. Each of Michael's unique, quirky contemporary designs measures approximately 3½ x 3½in (9 x 9cm), though the designs come in a variety of formats and include tall, narrow designs as well as borders. All the designs can be worked on 14-count Aida or evenweave fabric. There's a broad range of subjects to choose from, including country cottages, flowers, hearts, and festive Christmas trees, so whatever the occasion, there is bound to be a design that suits it perfectly. There are general instructions and simple stitch diagrams at the beginning of the book, so even those new to cross stitch will be able to accomplish all of the projects, as well as notes on fabric preparation and washing instructions.

About the Author

Michael Powell's love of buildings and architecture are the main inspiration for his work, normally created in pen and ink and watercolour. Michael's unique style translates brilliantly into needlework, whether it is cross-stitch or needlepoint/tapestry, where he replaces his watercolour palette with the vast range of cotton or wool. The resulting designs take on a new, fantastic vibrancy of their own. Michael has won The British Craft Awards Designer of the Year numerous times, and is continually working hard to create wonderful new designs for your stitching pleasure.
