Circus Pony Finished

After a few weeks of on agina off again stitching on this one, the Circus Pony is done.
The fabric is called Purple Swirl (I can't imagine why) and is available from Sew it all Australia
It's not visible on their site, you have to ask for it. I got mine at the Stitches and Craft show in Rosehill.
I have a blue one as well that I'll do somehting nice with later.

Circus Pony will be published in Embroidery and Cross Stitch Magazine, probably later this year. I'll put up a photo of the magazine photo when it comes out (they always do a fabulous job of presenting the piece).
It comes with the circus alphabet that i have used down the bottom to spell the name of my friend's little girl, Monique. It probably doesn't show up that well in this photo. Monique will get this cross stitch for Christmas. I know her mum will probably appreciate it more though :)

Now I'm working on a Country Angel. I think she's going to be very quick to stitch up. Circus pony took me just under 40 hours. I think the country angel will take maybe 15 hours.
Unfortunately I won't be able to show you a photo of that one as I'm hopin to sell it to a magazine that I havent' dealth with before. Sometimes the editors get annoyed if you show the work before it's published.

Happy Stitching everyone


  1. What a cutie! I have a piece of the blue swirl - using it for a Dr Who chart from Wee Little Stitches.

  2. Thanks Camellia,
    Dr who sounds great for that fabric.
    And i forgot to reply ... i would love to go to the Sydney quilt show, but I have no money :( Maybe next year.

  3. How cute is that pony! Well done. I love the feathers adorning the mane. Have you given the pony a name?

  4. Jan,
    I think he is 'Trigger'. I will suggest 'Trigger's Big Day' as a title to the magazine. :)
    There is a lady who walks her little white pony around the block most mornings, and his name is Trigger.
