LJT Blackwork and flower sampler 1

30th Aug 2022

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.

12 sections for us to enjoy over the coming weeks with the central panel worked...
