Eclectic Bloke Designs signs another Artist!

Yes, it's true! After the coup of joining forces with HeidiMadeThis! I have the greatest pleasure in announcing that I have signed Caroline Lord to my company.

Caroline's art comprises some of the most beautifully detailed animal paintings I have seen and it has been an absolute joy to convert the first of these into a cross stitch chart.

This is how Caroline describes herself:
"Animal Portrait Artist, Obsessive cross stitcher & crazy cat lady. I specialise in pastels on velour paper, and am inspired by the beauty of the natural world"

Given the popularity of my current WIP, it seemed only fitting that my first collaboration with Caroline be a tiger. And here he is!
This is the utterly beautiful and regal "Panthera Tigris".

This stunning design is stitched on 25 count fabric.
Design size approximately 16 x 14.5 inches.
38 colours are used.

£11 for the pdf chart.
Sorry, but at this time I can't offer a physical printed version, although I do hope to in the near future.

If you are interested in purchasing this item please click HERE and I will reply to you with my email address so you can pay via Paypal.
I will have a website up shortly and will notify everyone via my blog when it's ready.

In you love 'Panthera Tigris' then I'm positive you will love the rest of Caroline's portfolio. If you would to see more you can find her Facebook Page by searching for Caroline Lord Art and Craftworks 

Also, if you pop over to my Eclectic Bloke Designs Facebook page HERE you can see a little competition I have going.

Caroline herself has chosen 5 of her favourite pieces from her portfolio and everyone in my group is allowed to vote on which picture they would like me to chart next.
The picture with the most votes by 10pm on Thursday 24th of July will be the winner.
Everyone who voted on the winner will then have their names put into a hat and I will randomly pick a winner to receive the chart for FREE once it's available to the public.

So, for your chance at a free chart from my new company head over to my Facebook page and GOOD LUCK!


  1. You're in with both feet, aren't you? Caroline Lord's art is going to make spectacular cross stitch. Great choice.

    1. Strike while the iron is hot as they say. I just decided that now is the time to do this! I'm just hoping it all pays off. :-)
