Lesley Teare Cross Stitch Design

Start stitching blackwork!

23rd Mar 2015

These cards, four in all, are a great way to try out blackwork and enjoy a burst of colour, too.

Blackwork is a popular stitching technique that uses black thread and often depicts flowers and geometric shapes. I used one strand of thread for the blackwork on these cards and added coloured cross stitches for extra interest.

If you haven't tried this technique before then can I suggest that these designs would be ideal for you to have a go! Let me know how you get on. I would also love to see some of your stitched pieces.

Find them in the latest Cross Stitch GOLD, issue 118.
