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
