Farm in the Snow Cross Stitch Pattern

USD$9.76

Vintage Art Nouveau

Cross stitch a snow-covered farmhouse standing behind a row of deciduous poplars — their winter branches twisting against the grey-green light. Gorgeous.

 

Description

Farm in the Snow cross stitch pattern was inspired by 1919 woodcut design by Dutch painter and graphic artist Julie de Graag. Using two separate blocks, the design was then printed onto paper in grey and black.

The Project

Our cross stitch project recreates the design but uses 9 DMC colours — depicting the snow in varying shades of light apple green and brown grey. The extra colours give the project more depth, and the cream speckling in the background gives that sense of falling snow.

To retain the vintage appeal of the design, we’ve left in the artist insignia in the bottom right corner. Julia de Graag’s signature is always bold and memorable.

PATTERN KEEPER: this is a large, full coverage cross stitch and we recommend using Pattern Keeper App to manage your project. There is an extra PK chart in your download pack.

The Artist

Julie de Graag lived between 1877 and 1924 and created work in the Art Nouveau style. Her paintings, drawings and wood cut designs focused on everyday subjects like domestic pets, farm animals, insects and spiders — as well as leaves, flowers and people of the village.

Her work was defined by thick outlines and a minimalist colour palette (very often just black and white).
