This blackwork heart motif will complete the central section of my sampler. I'm really pleased with how it is all looking and thank you for sending in your pictures to my FB pages as it does help other stitchers see how it is going. Lesley Teare Cross Stitch designs | Facebook

I hope you all have a lovely week with plenty of stitching,
The start today of the first motif for my new sampler which I hope we are all going to love. The borders were added to last week's Blog page and all of the details for threads and fabric. Each week I will show just the motif with the blackwork surround, which will make it also easy to stitch up for a card. Hope this will suit everyone.
Happy stitching and I hope you all have a pleasant week.
I thought we would return to a sampler that incorporates some blackwork, especially for stitchers where this lovely technique might be new for them. It's a favourite style for me and I always think it is like taking 'a backstitch for a walk'
12 sections for us to enjoy over the coming weeks with the central panel worked...
Motif 9!!! Do you all think like me - 'where has the time gone to?' but hopefully all very enjoyable. This has been such a pretty sampler to work on and next Wednesday there will be a bit of a change with my new sampler design for the coming weeks.
Have a great week and I know August is not the best month for finding time to stitch, but I hope your days are going well .... despite the extreme heat...
