Purple Crane In All Its Glory


One of our designers, Ros Neale was inspired by The East African Crowned Crane and immediately found his cheeky expression and tufted hair style completely endearing! After a quick sketch she realised his front was much more attractive than his rear so decided to fill the entire design space with over exaggerated plumage in the hope that others would find him as attractive as she did and bring your attention to this beautiful endangered species.

Coloured in delicate shades of blues, lilac and mauve with vivid peacock hues rather than his natural whites, blacks and greys, he has now joined our wonderful collection of birdlife.

We include instructions for the stitches used, but tent stitch can be used if preferred.
