NEEDLEWORKPATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Faby Reilly Designs
These chirpy birds have chosen a new home and mother -or is it father? - stands proudly at the door, assessing the view from the perched house. Baby bird peeks from the round attic window, getting a glimpse of the world. Cheerful hearts pop up from the chimney. Flowers bloom below. Theirs is a loving home.
The cross stitch chart, brought to you by expert needlework designer Faby Reilly, includes some French knots (that can be substituted with Colonial knots), but the focus of this Masterclass is on the cheerful color confetti like stitch that animates the background. Follow Faby's practical tips and you will be able to carry your thread on the wrong side, without any fear of the thread showing through.
The piece is stitched on ice blue linen, providing a perfect background for the scene.
A tutorial is included with the chart for all specialty stitches.
