Lesley Teare Cross Stitch Design

First chart for my new part series.

7th Apr 2020

It's really exciting to be starting another new project with you all. I hope you all read last week's details for the start with the chart for the border.  My part series will 'run' over the next 9 weeks. Each Wednesday you will be able to download a free design to stitch in a few hours, so that eventually, we will have our Summer sampler completed. Each motif is quite suitable for a card design which some of you may also prefer to do.

I made a mistake on the colour symbols for the Details and KEY last week, so please make sure you have the update - the symbol for 677 has been altered.

Please check last week's Wednesday blog if you missed the start details for the border.

Although I have suggested two strands of 310 stranded cotton / floss or 1 strand of 310 Perle 8 for the 'blue' outline, please note that 1 strand can be used if a finer detail is required.

There have been a couple of queries about the colour 12, which is a relatively new shade. If preferred,then take a look at either 165 a duller shade or 3819 which is slightly darker.

Keep up the stitching and keep safe,
