African Beauty

Here's the African Beauty, Lesley Teare's cross stitch portrait of a young African woman, accompanied by a gazelle.


The design is particularly elegant with the figure gracefully leaning forward, her long neckline and shoulders contrasting with the bright print dress. Her head is draped in a matching turban and she is wearing large jewelry pieces such as gold bracelets, a pendant and round earings.


The silhouette of her face is particularly graceful, a fine line designed in much detail, in a combination of fractional stitches. So are her eyes, which somehow reflect those of the animal. There are some metallic highlights and beads adding extra texture to the stitched piece.

The chart comes with an extensive Cross stitch Guide detailing all stitches including fractional stitches.
