Lesley Teare Needlework design

Blackwork dragon

15th Nov 2016

Although the long shape of this wonderful dragon is perfect to use as a draught excluder when made into a long padded cushion, it would also make a truly lovely design for a framed picture if simply mounted and surrounded with a thin moulded frame.

The pattern is made up of various types of blackwork stitch in both red and black threads, along with cross stitches of golden yellow for the feet and the spiny ridge along its back.

Find it in issue 134 of Cross Stitch GOLD magazine, out on the 22/11/2016
