Take a look at the very creative cross-stitch website Chatelaine from Russia. The designs are complex and elegant. I love them! The blog is in Russian, but you can click on "Translate" at the top of the page.
Leave a comment while you're there. I think the main writer ("Miss Eagle") could use a little encouragement. (She asks why no one comments.)
The designs are from Chatelaine in Germany. Thank you to Ruth for this link. :)
