I don't know if any of you are needlework fanatic like I am, but here is a link to a beautiful counted cross stitch pattern for an Angel Maltese. Scroll down about halfway - she is March (they call her a Bichon, but she is definately a Maltese).

It is beautiful made up. It would be especially beautiful done in red or green instead of purple for the holidays.

I am too blind for counted cross stitch. I tried a little sampler and couldn't finish it! I can do needlepoint, though, and found a needlepoint canvas artists who will make a painted canvas of Pico from a photo. Wish I could afford it but I still have a project in the works so can't even tempt myself right now.

Boom Boom's mom:

I have other patterns for Maltese so when you finish that one, let me know. I'd be happy to copy them for you. I have the Pegasus head study, among others.

http://www.crossstitchunlimited.com/detail.cfm?ID=34

I have a whole wall in a bedroom set up for grooming with a grooming table, dryer on a gooseneck, shelves for lotions and potions, plus a 3 drawer thing for clothes. Since I practically have a grooming salon set up, I decided to "class it up" as best as possible. I stencilled little mauve pawprints on the white shelves and drawers and have some of my finished cross stitch pieces on the wall behind it.

Sort of a Maltese shrine, don't you think?

Marj,
That sounds so cute. I would love to set up a little Maltese corner in my office/doggyroom. Post some pics please, I am sure we'd all love to see how it looks!

Thanks for the site. I will get the thread and get started on it soon.
Wouldn't it be darling on a Christmas Sweatshirt?

Doubt that I could get it done in time for Christmas though.

I think it is a Malt also. We could even tie on little bows with a bell....the possibilities are endless!

I'm on the prowl for a cute maltese dog pattern... I would like one that has long hair and maybe a top knot. I bought one off of ebay but i'm not happy with it... it looks like they put a picture into one of those pattern programs on the computer and the colors are yellowish... maltese are not yellow unless they pee on themselves!

can anyone help me?

Awwww I think the link is down. I missed it.

Marge mailed me the two other cross stitches and they are cute and simple to do.
I plan on giving them for Christmas gifts. Now only if I can find the time to finish them.......

Thanks Marge for help. You are always a dear!

Pegasus makes a really nice one. It's done in true white with pale grays and Kresnik filament mixed in for sparkle. It is very tedious because every stitch seems to be a different color so you have to work in one inch squares. It's lovely finished, though.

Thank u marj! I ordered this pattern online yesterday and now i have to wait..they are ordering it in for me they said... hopefully its not discontinued. The pattern sounds even prettier in person from your description! Sparkle! :)

I was wondering if you still have any other patterns of maltese? These links in this thread no longer work.

Unless the pattern has been changed, if you look at the color key the first color listed is White and the symbol is a dot. The second color listed is White with Pearl Balger Blending Filament and the symbol is a dash. I did not use the filament because I decided to torture myself by doing this on 32 count linen using one strand of floss and stitching over one thread. The finished design measures 2.5" x 2.5" and I used it as the front flap of a small purse. I love the purse, it was worth the effort, but I'd never do a repeat. It's definitely a one of a kind. Here's a picture ....

Thank you for answering my question!
Where can i buy White with Pearl Balger Blending Filament ?? AC Moore?

My pattern just says to use white for the dot (.) and dash (-) symbols in the pattern... doesnt say anything about filament.

Your purse came out beautiful... its worth the effort!
