Lesley Teare Cross Stitch Design

Another new design for GOLD

6th Sep 2013

This is the second design to be found in the latest issue of GOLD magazine. It celebrates the first day of Christmas with this pretty partridge perched in a colourful pear tree. Although this design is intended for the first of the Christmas issues I will be very happy to have this cushion, with this chubby chap on my settee all year round.

I have used lots of bold shapes to make this piece stand out and opted for some non - Christmassy colours to ring the changes. I love the orange shades on the pears, highlighted by gold Reflecta thread. The spotty leaves are fun too, and they’re mirrored by the dots in the fabric border.
