Archeys Frog Needlepoint Kit
Archeys Frog Needlepoint Kit

Archey’s Frog is native to New Zealand and is found in a small area near Coromandel in the North Island. Native frogs are quite different to introduced species – they have no external eardrum, no webbing between their toes and the pupil of each eye is circular rather than a slit. The male of this species of frog raises the young. The Maori name for frog is Pepeke.

Franz Joseph Glacier Needlepoint Kit
Franz Joseph Glacier Needlepoint Kit

This glacier, like the Fox Glacier, flows down the Western slopes of Mount Cook. Julius von Haast, a German geologist who came to New Zealand in 1858 was a scientist with a particular interest in the way that the plains and lakes of the South Island of New Zealand had been formed by the action of glaciers. He named this one after the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Josef because he felt that the grandeur of the scenery demanded a royal name.

Hungarian Floral Embroidery Kit
Hungarian Floral Embroidery Kit

Designed by Mary Self
I like the exuberance of Hungarian Embroidery, and how many variations you can get from some simple shapes. I first digitized the pomegranate outlines, then started stitching with 8 colours of the Madeira Lana thread. Each flower has every colour in it and no two are the same. This will be the start of something more.

The stitches used are chain stitch, split stitch, French knots, satin stitch, seed stitch and what I am calling bauble stitch for the top of the pomegranates.
