Counted cross stitch kit Violets

Marjolein Bastin translated to embroidery designs

Marjolein Bastin is known for her beautiful illustrations of the nature around her home. She loves the birds, flowers and plants she sees outside of her home every day. These are perfectly translatable to needlework designs, which makes the LanArte needlework kits so successful. LanArte has an extended collection of high quality needlework kits with designs by the hand of Marjolein Bastin.

Marjolein sure knows how to combine the softest colors. These perfectly fit with the flowers and birds she chooses to paint. In the embroidery designs, LanArte tries to stay true to the original colors. They do this by choosing thread colors that lean close to the colors Marjolein uses.

Very popular are the series of the seasons. For every season there’s a lovely scene in counted cross stitch. Besides flowers, the collection includes a lot of different birds. From bullfinches to tits, they all appear in the garden and so they also appear in LanArtes cross stitch kits. But we also see other animals like squirrels, rabbits, chicks and ducks. And of course some beautiful butterflies.

In 2018, a Marjolein Bastin design was the subject of the Secret Stitch Along. The kit ‘My Winter Home’ was loved by the many embroiderers that joined us in this adventure. This design is now available as a complete kit.
