CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
Designer Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles tells of her inspiration for Good Morning:
"Design is a dainty 139 x 78 stitches, chock full of cute posies and curious dragonflies, complete with sparkles, a perky picket fence and all sorts of bling and zing to make any recipient smile with delight. I used classic Zweigart 36 ct white Edinburgh linen, stitching over 2 with 2 strands of floss, although this piece could be done over 1 thread of fabric. I embellished the little dragonflies with copper and ginger petite Mill Hill beads (eyes), and the Kreinik #4 braid is in a glowing emerald on the wings."
Creative Poppy says:
This is a classic and elegant stiched piece that can be virtually stitched by any cross stitcher. Beginner stitchers can cross stitch the piece on white Aida, intermediate stitchers can work the pattern on linen over two threads while advanced stitchers might want to tackle it over one, resulting in a exquisite 5 inch wide miniature.
The charming quaker style flowers compliment the cheerful "good morning". An extra fun detail is the cute little dragonfly, with read bead eyes, hovering above the flowers.
Skip the text and stitch the pretty flower borders on the flap of a pouch.
The chart comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart.
