Firstly, I realised that I hadn't placed any guidelines between the motifs. These have now been added in red. I have also added the border chart again with the new details - so please make sure you check this - a note about the guidlines is now included in the KEY & details. Take care when stitching the guidlines as the spacing varies a little between some of them.
It has been lovely seeing my first part stitched by many of...
It's really exciting to be starting another new project with you all. I hope you all read last week's details for the start with the chart for the border. My part series will 'run' over the next 9 weeks. Each Wednesday you will be able to download a free design to stitch in a few hours, so that eventually, we will have our Summer sampler completed. Each motif is quite suitable for a card design which some of you may...
1st April, and not only my blackwork flowers and birds SAL for April is out today, but, we have a new part series to look forward to. I hope both projects will help you all stay calm and relaxed, at least whilst you are stitching.
All the details are attached for the new series for the threads and fabric you will need and a pdf file for you to download of the border to get started. AND, of course, the all...
Anther week, and trying times for all of us. I hope you have managed to keep going and keep safe and that the stitching is good therapy.
I had a enquiry from a grandma earlier in the week to ask if I had a suitable chart of a unicorn so that she could introduce cross stitch to her 9 year old granddaughter, who, like my ones of 6 and 9, love them! Thankfully she and my granddaughters approved of my design!
It has been lovely watching this sampler 'grow' each week and now here we are at the final section, part 9. Thank you for so many lovely comments about the design and to say how much you have enjoyed stitching it.
Until next Wednesday, when I will have news about a new design, happy stitching to you all,
First, for those of you who requested and automatic transfer of my blog page to your emails, this has had to come to an end. I am sorry but, with the increase I was asked to pay for something I am giving as a free chart, wasn't acceptable. I hope you will all understand and keep logging on to me and taking part in whatever series comes up in the future.
Part 8 already! and now into March. All looking lovely...
When I view all of your pictures of this design as it grows each week, I am absolutely delighted, thrilled, as to how it is looking. As you know, I don't get the time to stitch these free charts and if there are any mistakes I am sorry, but, I know you will let me know and I can correct it. So far so good!!!
Part 7 is now here and I hope you will enjoy this week's section.
Here is the centre piece for my new Blackwork part series, so it really is going to start looking like the Spring sampler when this is completed. All of your stitched pieces that you have so kindly shown on my Lesley Teare group page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/529145740484076/ look wonderful. It is so lovely to see the different fabrics, and, even one talented stitcher adapting the border. I will look forward to catching up with all of your new photos in the coming...
Another week and I hope your stitching has been going well This is the fourth section to my new part series and it is all looking lovely with your pictures you are sending in. Keep them coming to my Lesley Teare group as they are super to see.
Part three is now ready for you to download and the stitched designs that you are sending in look so pretty. I am really pleased.
