Pretty Little London!

Still working on the elephant pincushion, but I thought I'd mention one of my favorite Satsuma Street patterns, Pretty Little London!

This modern cross stitch design of the London skyline features some of the city's most iconic landmarks, done in my colorful graphic way.  You have Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and St. Paul's cathedral, as well as more modern structures like the London Eye, the Shard, and the Gherkin building.  And of course because it's London, there's a happy little raincloud!

Like my other city patterns, this London design is inspired by Mary Blair and her designs for It's a Small World.  I love taking the features of a city and trying to make them graphic and stylish while still evoking the place.

This pattern is available in my etsy shop, and makes a great companion piece to my other city designs!
