CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
Designer Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles tells of her inspiration for Needleworkers Abecedarius:
"This is the ultimate Needleworker's Abecedarius sampler - - From dainty Alisia's lace stitch to Indian drawn ground stitch, and Jacobean couching to Zigzag twill, this Needleworker's Abecedarius Sampler says it, A to Z, in many lesser known needlework terms.
Charted in one shade of red and worked on a light brown 36 count natural linen over 2, the (255 x 414 stitches) design will fit nicely on a fat quarter of linen which is 18" x 27", with two inches to spare all the way around for framing. Finished size would be 14" x 23". If stitched on 40 ct linen over 2, finished size would be 12-3/4” x 20-3/4”."
Creative Poppy says:
The design is charted in one color but looks charming in any soft range of hues. We do suggest you make your own decision for color. Use overdyed floss or combine your own floss palette, balancing the colors throughout the design. Your stitched piece will be truly unique.
The chart comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart with extensive instructions describing all specialty stitches.
