Cross Stitch Kits And Jigsaw Puzzles
My son was recently given this jigsaw puzzle and I was surprised to read about the company who make cross stitch kits and jigsaw puzzles all designed by leading artists in the most original way. They are called Gecko Rouge and have the most amazing array of art on their site all designed by new and contemporary artists.
|Snow White and Rose Red by Illustrated Ink|
This particular 1000 piece jig saw is highly original 'Snow White and Rose Red' by Illustrated Ink is a sort of 'Day Of The Dead' type homage, which could be framed, (26in x 20 in), when completed. It is beautifully designed and comes boxed in a very attractive package. It retails at £22.00 and would make a lovely gift.
I particularly like some of the cross stitch designs, which come complete with all the necessary silks and sewing needs and with full instructions, such as this 'Beyond The Blue' by Jo Grundy. This is priced at £71.32 and would be a wonderful statement picture, (after some very clever stitching and framing).
And this stunning 'Dragonfly Pool', also by Jo Grundy priced at £116.23 - isn't it magical?
They have a lovely short blog, started in August 2015, (Gekstars Gallery), which gives more information regarding the artists and with some of the completed cross stich pictures.
'A Storm Inside', a tiny needle minder by Emily Luella Licensed Art at only £5.00 is quite adorable, and another small needle minder is 'Absolution' by Carissa Rose Licensed Art also at only £5.00.
There are literally hundreds of stunning designs and the company will even design to order should you wish a particular picture or photo copied. Do take a look.
The information regarding this fairly new company is as follows, (directly from their own website):
