101 Sporty Cross Stitch Motifs

On your marks…get set…go!!

Whether you’re a sportsman or woman yourself, have one in your life or are a spectator, there is sure to be a motif in this delightful collection of 101 Sporty motifs that aptly applies.

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 Americana' 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.

Pattern booklets come complete with step-by-step ‘How To’ instructions and an easy to follow key. Charts are supplied both in full color and black and white giving you the best of both worlds.

101 Sporty Motifs contains:

Windsurfer Water and snow skiing Swimming and surfing Fishing and diving Luge competitors Ice hockey, American football and baseball Cricket, soccer and high jump Figure skating, dancing and gymnastics Darts, polo and horse racing Canoeing, golf and discus Tennis, boxing and weight lifting Martial arts, rugby and fencing

And…many, many more

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.
