Perfect Chemistry

It’s been a while since I last added something new to my Etsy Shop but I’ve finally had a chance to finish off this chemistry-inspired chart for a geeky couple in your life…

 

Husband and Wife Cross Stitch Chart

The perfect gift for any chemistry couple…

 

So, what do you think??

You can change the colours to suit your decor and it would make a very different wedding gift than those flowery cross stitch charts you usually see. Adding a date and some names underneath the design would be a great way to personalise it too.

You can find the chart here and it’s available for instant download so you can start stitching straight away… It’s only £4.49 (+VAT where applicable).

Anyway, I’m on a roll now and have some other periodic element designs in the pipeline and I’m aiming to add something new every month. If there’s anything you’d like to see then just drop me a note. I’m always looking for quirky new designs to add to my range!

New Additions to the Periodic Table

Back in June 2016 the  International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) announced the proposal of four new chemical elements on the periodic table:

  • Nihonium and symbol Nh, for the element 113,
  • Moscovium and symbol Mc, for the element 115,
  • Tennessine and symbol Ts, for the element 117, and
  • Oganesson and symbol Og, for the element 118.

These are currently under consultation with ratification due in November 2016.

So, it was also time for me to update my popular Periodic Table of Elements chart on Etsy.

As you can see below, the chart is now fully up to date with the new symbols and the 2016 version is now available in my Etsy Shop.

Many customers buy the chart and use it to make up their own words for smaller projects instead of stitching the entire thing – a whopping 450 x 240 stitches – and the new element names help a little with this. Moscovium would be useful for ‘Mc’ names and Tennessine gives you a ‘Ts’ to finish words such as RaTs and FArTs…

I hope you enjoy this new addition to the shop and there are more to come shortly.

Cross Stitch-a-long

I was thrilled to be contacted earlier this week by a Facebook group admin who has chosen my Flags of the World Cross Stitch design as one of their Stitch-a-Long projects for 2015.

Emma runs the Cross Stitch Crazee group and the idea is that people from all over the world purchase the chart and share their progress with others in the group throughout the year.  There is also a gorgeous Owl project for the year too – so you can choose to do one or both of them.  A great way of being social and sharing your love of cross stitch from the comfort of your own lounge!

I was so impressed by the idea (and Emma’s commitment to help her members with materials packs for the charts) that I am offering group members a 20% discount on this chart until 1st January 2015.  If you want to get your hands on it, then pop over to Facebook and ask to join the group.  You will then see an Events tab and full details of this chart are given in the “Year Long SAL 2” event, plus the code you’ll need for the discount.

Happy Stitch-a-Long everyone!

Back to my geeky beginnings

I love trying out new styles of cross stitch design, and so far this year I have been obsessed with the Periodic Table.  So much so, that I have released a number of charts using chemical elements to spell out words and have been featured in the latest issue of The World of Cross Stitch magazine for doing just that!  All very exciting.

But my big news is that after putting it in the ‘too hard basket’ of design, I have finally completed the full Periodic Table of Elements and now have the chart available for sale in my Etsy Shop

So, here is the finished beasty in full glorious colour – and I hope lots of people enjoy stitching the whole enormous lot (32 x 17 inches or 82 x 44cm) or picking out individual letters to make their own words and names…

Love my Chemistry!

Having an Etsy shop is allowing me to add charts that I would never dreamed of having on my website along with my very prim & proper name samplers!  I have this past few weeks been adding some Chemical Element charts that spell out words and with 5 uploaded already, I am looking forward to creating more.

GeNiUS

Not only do I get to figure out more words as I go, but I am also revisiting my happy days at school and university studying geology (yes, a bit sad I know, but I am most definitely a nerd and very proud of it!).

So, if you fancy stitching any of these, pop over to my Etsy Shop’s Chemical Element section and have a browse – and if you think of any wonderful words that I could add that would be great too…

Until next time, happy stitching folks!
