Part 7 of my Xmas SAL. It is going so well and I am delighted with the pictures you are sending in. Please keep them coming and now we have part 7 with a 'Present'
Hope your week goes well; as some of you may have read on my FB page yesterday, I had, along with a lot of neighbours in our large community, rather a trying time with no Internet access for 36 hours...anyway, back on and in time to...
Hope your week has gone well. Not too sure here in Suffolk in the UK that I like the colder and wet weather coming in. BUT! always a flipside to life - more time to stitch with the darker and colder evenings!
SO looking good with all of your lovely pictures coming in of my Xmas blackwork SAL, and here we go with the next section - a candle.
I think with adding my October owl yesterday to my blog and now another section for my blackwork Xmas SAL, how time is just flying!
What a lovely start to this new project and it is great to see all of your lovely stitching. Do please keep them coming in so we can all see them. If you would like to post pictures of designs of mine that you have done or are working on then please join me at this...
I have been thrilled to see lots of pictures this past week and if you wish to add to these then please do join my Lesley Teare Cross Stitch group, where you can send in any pictures of my designs that you have done.....including these.
Firstly, my apologies for giving you an incorrect date last Wednesday for when this SAL will finish. I should have put 4th December, NOT the 14th! There will though be 14 parts in total for this design, whether you complete it as a sampler or as individual motifs.
I have added a pdf file of the complete border from last week with the one holly motif in place, and, a separate pdf chart for the holly leaf with another border that...
It is exciting to be starting another part series with you that will take us through to Wednesday 4th December and allow you to stich a blackwork Xmas sampler or 12 small Xmas cards and one larger one.
Today I am starting with the complete border and the sections that go between each design. This should then make it quite easy to add each weekly motif in the correct spot, starting next Wednesday 11th with the holly leaf top left. Also...
Here is the list for the details for my new blackwork SAL that begins next Wednesday, so I hope you will all be prepared to make a start! I have also shown one small motif with a new border which I think will make a nice addition to the designs if you are stitching them for cards.
AND, remember this Sunday, 1st September my new owl chart for the month will be published.
Hi everyone, this is a preview of my design that I will be adding next Wednesday 4th September, when I will start my new part series. Stitching this design will take us up to the beginning of December when I hope you will have 12 small motifs and a larger one stitched!! You will be able to choose whether you stitch them as separate designs which will make lovely, simple cards, or, perhaps as the complete sampler for Christmas 2019.
Just a quick comment this week to show you a snippet of my new design. The blue jay from North America is the bird that has been chosen and thanks so much for your comments on that. Here is the start of the surround for that design which is coming along really well. Hopefully this will be available in a few week's time.
Happy stitching and I hope you all have a good week, Lesley
Gosh, now into the middle of August! Hope your stitching is going well, but I know with school holidays many of you will have a few interuptions.
The latest Gold Cross stitch magazine, issue 158, has a group of my four christmas teddy designs....cuddly teds, wrapped up in winter woolies, so that you can send warm wishes for the festive season. Hope you will enjoy them.
Hope your week goes well and here is a picture of our Tilly at 9 weeks,...
