These motifs were as a result of a design commission I received from Quick & Easy Cross Stitch Magazine UK (Now no longer in print) a few years ago. I had a great deal of fun putting them together and now that they are no longer under license am thrilled to be able to offer the booklet ‘101 Circus Motifs' for purchase on Makerist.
All motifs contain only full crosses, French knots and back stitch, making them quick and easy to make up either individually or for you to put several together and produce a unique sampler. Charts are featured in black and white symbols with colored outlines where applicable and an easy to read key.
Charts are featured in black and white symbols with colored outlines where applicable. Each booklet contains complete with step-by-step ‘How To’ instructions, an easy to follow key and charts in in black and white symbols with colored outlines where applicable.

I am from Johannesburg, South Africa.
Some would comment that I live in my own little world of imaginary creatures and all things fey. To them I ask, does the wind not exist simply because we do not see it?
Whether it be an old bottle cap, a skein of yarn, scraps of material, a piece of wire or a block of wood, I love to spend time creating things of whimsy that I trust will be found to be fun, refreshing and enjoyable to others.
I am also a published cross stitch designer having done work for and with Quick & Easy Cross Stitch magazine (UK), Cross Stitcher magazine (UK), Jeanette Crews Design (USA) as well as DMC Paris.
