Mix and Match Needlework techniques

 

Brought to you by Lesley Teare, not only is this design gorgeous, it's quite a thrill to stitch. You'll be working intricate blackwork motifs of many a kind when stitching the petals of flowers with the black outlines, then switching to regular Cross stitch with Backstitch and French knot highlights, then finally, it's fast-forward for the borders and leaf motifs in just plain cross stitch. The stitched piece is just stunning.

Patchwork Style assembly

 

It's a great idea to assemble small motifs patchwork style. The big advantage is that it allows you to cross stitch on a variety of colors backgrounds, in this case, 4 different colors of Permin linen.

There are two golden rule to follow though: squares must be cut exactly to the same size and the embroidery perfectly centered.

Heart-felt feelings, in stitches

 

The two designs that follow are inspired by Lucy M. Montgomery's novel, "Anne of Green Gables".

The book tells of the confused feelings and emotions of Anne, a young orphan, as she starts her new life at the farm. Kyoko Maruoka depicts two early highlights of the novel, in very expressive embroidery designs.

The first piece shows Anne discovering the power of prayer in a very personal way.
