Lesley Teare Cross Stitch Design

LJT Blackwork Fan sampler January

23rd Jan 2024

Where did 12 weeks go!? I do hope many of you have enjoyed the Zodiac designs. It has been really lovely to see some of the results of your lovely stitching. Thank you.

Difficult to know what to do next, but, I have returned to a blackwork theme as there have been quite a few queries from stitchers wondering how to start on this technique. This 12 week sampler is small, so each design is quite achievable to work in just a few hours. Please feel free to adapt the designs as you may prefer to omit the months and just work the motif and perhaps even alter the thread colours to suit you. French knots could be changed to tiny seed beads. 

I hope you all have a good week and will enjoy taking part in this new sampler design.

Happy stitching, Lesley
