Beauvais (Vintage Textiles Collection)
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY GRACEWOOD STITCHES
Kathy Bungard designer of Gracewood Stitches describes the pattern in her own words:
My inspiration for 'Beauvais' comes from my love of textiles. From far Eastern intricately woven silks to vintage
utilitarian cottons, linens and wool fabrics, I am mesmerized by the patterns that can be achieved. This is why I
decided to design my own 'fabrics' for cross stitch or needlepoint.
To begin a collection that will be called 'Vintage Textiles' I chose a pattern with a feel of vintage French fabric,
so for my first 'cross stitch textile' I have created one with a Gallic flavor and chose the name Beauvais, after the
town in northern France.
This pattern uses the Assissi technique of stitching the background and leaving the design area open.
To needlepoint this pattern stitch the open areas in white.
Creative Poppy says:
This pattern from the designer's Vintage Textiles collection is very versatile and can easily be adapted, either by sybstituting colors, or by adapting the size. The pattern can be extended hozizontally and vertically to fit virtually any size of project. You can make new cushions or refurbish an old armchair. Don't hesitate to select threads colors that match your home decor.
