Lesley Teare Cross Stitch Design

Mystical maiden

23rd Dec 2014

This mystical maiden is stitched in peacock feather colours of rich greens, blues and violets, and highlighted with golden threads and beads. The main body of the design is not too difficult to stitch but more care is required in order to get the facial details correct...........take time when working on this area. The rest of the backstitching is fairly simple with a combination of the traditional and a looser style all included. I really enjoyed the design process and I hope many of you will enjoy stithing her.

She is in the latest GOLD magazine, issue 117, out now
