Stitch this vibrant parrot on your
next home decor piece!


Beautiful, colorful Australian King Parrots are commonly found in gorgeous subtropical rainforests. Freda loves the majestic birds, and was hoping we could add a few designs featuring them to our collection. Here, a lone parrot perches amongst tropical flowers and blooms native to its home, including pink sunray wildflowers, waratah, flame peas, and Tasmanian Christmas bells.
 
Available in three sizes:
7.71" x 6.89" and 6.57" x 5.87" and 5.47" x 4.89"


Australian King Parrots mainly stick to forested regions of Australia, including wooded areas full of eucalyptus trees. They feed on fruits and seeds gathered from trees or on the ground. Here we depicted a pair of the birds sitting on a eucalyptus branch, one male and one female. The male is known for his red head, breast, and lower undersides, while the female has a green head and breast and a grey beak.
 
Available in three sizes:
6.88" x 7.36" and 5.85" x 6.26" and 4.85" x 5.19"



Serene Sea Oats


Deborah is crafting a coastal-theme quilt for her brother, and was searching for sea oats designs to add to the project. Here you go, Deborah! The lovely oceanfront grass is depicted two ways: swaying lightly in the breeze and standing upright.
     
 
Available in four sizes:
6.55" x 11.75" and 5.24" x 9.41"
 4.35" x 7.81" and 3.82" x 6.86"
  Available in four sizes:
6.86" x 11.38" and 5.67" x 9.40"
 4.71" x 7.80" and 4.14" x 6.85"


Not only did we add a pair of stand-alone sea oats designs, but we also created a border of the seafront plant as well. We opted for depicting the subtropical grass with large, golden brown seed heads -- generally this coloring occurs in late summer, and it is how the plant got its name.
 
Available in five sizes:
11.75" x 4.32" and 9.42" x 3.46" and 7.82" x 2.88" and 6.00" x 2.47" and 3.88" x 1.89"


Finish your sea oats series with a corner design, perfect for stitching on pockets, placemats, quilts, and more!
     
 
Available in three sizes:
5.87" x 6.46" and 4.86" x 5.35" and 3.51" x 3.86"
 

  The sea oats designs are wonderful choices for a pair of towels; give them with sea salts and lotion for a fantastic gift basket!
