Mingling Blackwork and cross stitch

 

Designer Lesley Teare excels in the art of Blackwork, taking it to new depths and combining it with other needlework techniques so that her designs come to life. This wonderful anemone flower, with beaded heart and petals richly detailed with intricate lace-like blackwork motifs, is visited by a tiny blue tit of the chickadee family.

Art Deco wallpaper style

 

Designer Kathy Bungard of Gracewood Stitches invites us on a journey back in time about 100 years,  when an explosion of creativity shook up aesthetic codes and gave rise to the Art Deco movement. We really enjoy the way all the flowers have been styled, each in their own way.

Openwork-like monograms

 

These embroidered initials look like openwork but are actually full cross stitch. They come in a lovely faded blue tone, adorned with hearts and floral garlands. The alphabet can be stitched as a whole or the letters can be used to customize home deco items  - think personalized terry towels with initals, or Valentine's or birthday cards, or a cusion cover with the word "LOVE".  A cross stitch pattern created by Lesley Teare.

Bird feeding

 

A little girl stretches out a hand holding seeds. Birds perched in the branches look on watchfully. The bravest of them all takes off in a flutter of wings. We love the way designer Perrette Samouiloff captures the vivacious movements and positions of the birds, as well as the careful balance of colors of this winter scene.

A delicate mix of Blackwork and Cross stitch

 

Designer Lesley Teare has truly mastered the art of mixing the two needlework techniques, creating unique designs inspired by nature. Picture her latest work featuring a tiny wren, exquisitely rendered in cross stitch, surrounded by the fragile and almost transparent petals of scabious, delicately rendered in tiny lace-like motifs of Blackwork.

Navy and polka dots

 

Designed by Faby Reilly, the common thread of these festive cross stitch patterns is the navy pattern with white polka dots that can be found everywhere, in the shape of ribbon, scarf and even fabric embellishing the foot of the tree. The dark navy makes a nice contrast with the soft frosty and green tones used for cross stitching.

Hand dyed fabric effects

 

We love it when stitchers share pictures of their finished works. Maggie D. kindly sent us photos of two Barbara Ana designs where she experimented with hand dyed fabrics as well as stitching on a large scale with double size cross stitches.

 

Miss Mandrake was stitched on 14 count tea-dyed Aida with random shades created by the folds in the fabric during the dying process.

The piece was worked using six strands of DMC over two threads. The finished work is smooth with full coverage similar to needlepoint (or tapestry), though Maggie adds "I don't think I'm going to use the six strands again, ever.The only problem was when I had multiple colors close together and the holes in the Aida got a little crowded."

Miss Mandrake cross stitch pattern by Barbara Ana Designs

For the Frida Kahlo piece Maggie says "I got inspired and dyed my own fabric". We think the finished piece is gorgeous, with the background fabric a wonderful match for the original design.

The piece was also worked in double size cross stitches (one cross over 4 aida squares), however this time using only three strands of DMC embroidery floss. The cross stitches are more prominent and the bright colors gently blend into the background fabric.

Maggie concludes "My next product, Forest Queen is going on golden yellow Aida. I am going to have to stop watching Flosstube before I get into real trouble...."
