With festival season in full swing, we’re celebrating with a little flower power of our own – two new floral tapestries, Bloom-Pah-Pah and Ditsy Daisies.

These gorgeous new designs join the popular Ba-Ba-Bloom and Ba-Ba-Birds, both of which have found homes on sofas around the country and much further afield too! Bloom-Pah-Pah and Ditsy Daisies will coordinate beautifully with Ba-Ba-Bloom and Ba-Ba-Birds, and are perfect new additions to the Bloom range if you’re keen to stitch a collection with a similar feel.

Let’s have a look at the designs, starting with Bloom-Pah-Pah. We made the tapestry up in two different ways, both as a cushion and a bag.

Julie added an extra panel of grey fabric along the top of the bag, which gives it the appearance of being taller than the cushion. The dark central panel makes Bloom-Pah-Pah a practical choice for a bag, or for anyone with dark haired/furred pets!

The design size for Bloom-Pah-Pah is approximately 14″ x 13.5″ (36 x 34cm), and it’s printed in full colour on 10 holes per inch double thread canvas, as are most of our cushion designs. More details including full kit contents here on our website.

On to Ditsy Daisies, and our cushion sports a mitred border in our yellowy lime cotton, with pewter grey piping and backing. This border really brings out the colours in the design.

We’ve shrunk the flowers and divided the background colours in the design, with a mid grey for the upper section, and tangerine below.

Ditsy Daisies measures approximately 14″ x 12″ (36cm x 30cm), and is also on 10 holes per inch canvas. More details here on our website, including advice on choosing a tapestry frame if you need one.

We hope you like these two new designs. We’re thoroughly enjoying designing kits with these greys, especially when we combine them with the zingy acid tones and orange. They look fantastic together on the Bloom-Pah-Pah kits which we packed yesterday.

Bloom-Pah-Pah wool

In the days before Ba-Ba-Bloom and Ba-Ba-Birds, we didn’t really use much grey wool, but that’s all changed now and we’ve recently adjusted our wool shelves to allow more room for them!

Have a lovely weekend whether in or out of the sunshine, and happy stitching.


PS Dare we mention it…our Christmas making up deadline is looming ever closer. Take a tapestry with you if you’re going on holiday – the odd half hour of stitching whenever and wherever you can really makes the difference and it’ll save you from having a mad panic in early October!
