Lesley Teare Cross Stitch Design

Spanish beauty

8th Feb 2017

This Spanish lady can be found in the latest edition of Gold Cross Stitch magazine, issue 135. Although this design looks intricate, it is fairly simple; it just needs concentration, in particular, when attempting the patterned areas. These patterns are based on blackwork stitches - backstitches that make up the patterns. The beautiful border, butterflies and fan, and the decoration on her dress are all based on this particular style of needlework. I think she looks gorgeous, I hope you will agree.

Have a lovely week, Lesley
