Blackwork takes on spring colors

 

Who said that Blackwork had to be stitched in black? Designer Lesley Teare brilliantly demonstrates how the technique can be used with sunny and cheerful colors. Furthermore, each of these patterns combines two slightly different hues of floss to further lighten up to the stitched piece.

Lace-like stitching

 

A bit of a challenge: this Lesley Teare Blackwork design will require patience, even for the most experienced stitchers. But what a miracle of refinement and precision. The Blackwork chart combines cross stitch and backstitch playing with different thicknesses of thread to create dimensional effects.

The January part in full detail

 

Part One comes in the top left of the design. Make sure you have downloaded the frame chart so you start stitching in the right position.

The pattern comes in bright colorful floss colors that contrast with the black outlines. Some parts such as the bird and butterfly are simply cross stitched, with some backstitch detail. Other parts of the design are worked in delicate lace-like Blackwork motifs, such as the petals of the large flower. This creates a delicate balance and adds a lot of interest to the stitching.

Notice how the black outlines vary in thickness. Some parts of the design, such as some outlines as well as the chain-like frame are indeed worked in thicker lines with 2 strands of embroidery floss. Depending on your personal preference, the designer suggests using Pearl cotton 8 instead which comes in a single thread.

35 new DMC embroidery floss colors - green range 11-12-13-14-15-16Lesley Teare 2020 SAL

A question from a stitcher

 

We just received this question from Susanna:
"Hi. I downloaded the Lesley Teare Birds and Blackwork Flowers. I can’t wait to start. But the first color listed as dmc 12 has me stumped. Is that no. correct? I don’t see it listed in my DMC Color Card. Is this a new color? Thank you."

 

Most of us use our treasured DMC colorcard as a bible, so how come there could be a number below 48? 

But well yes, DMC did introduce some new embroidery floss colors about two years ago. One of them is DMC 12 described as "Tender green" and indeed is evocative of tender buds and young shoots. It's a gorgeous color that plays an important role in Lesley Teare's 2020 SAL. Enjoy stitching with this cheerful and springlike color.

Blackwork revisited

 

As you can see in the close-up image of this brand new Hibiscus and Hummingbird design, Blackwork expert Lesley Teare takes a brand new approach to the technique. Lace-like mini motifs fill areas with "textures" of various density creating dimensional effects. Black gives way to color, in fine touches in the Blackwork areas, and whole-heartedly in other parts of the design. The result is Lesley Teare's signature style of Needlework designs, a unique approach to embroidery.

Alphabet samplers

 

These classic italic script letters are embellished with leaves and arabesques, in the manner of antique white embroidery monograms. The pattern is so elegant, you can stitch it for its own sake - as well as reuse the chart for customizing any project with initials. The numbers, rarely found on an alphabet sampler, are an extra bonus (weddings and  anniversaries).

17th century Blues

 

Did you know that Delft tiles where originally inspired by the blue and white porcelain imported from China through Dutch ports in 17th century Holland? This explains the oriental feel of the floral motifs. Landscapes however were decidedly Dutch, depicting the mix of land and water of the Netherlands. Check out these designs close and you'll be amazed at Lesley Teare needlework expertise, replicating the tiny brush strokes in such amazing detail that you can recognize tiny drawbridges in the distance of the chimney of a potter's workshop.

Winter visitor

 

In England and most of Europe, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without spotting a red robin, their bright orange chest catching our eye in the barren gardens as they get closer to our homes looking for food. Here is a wonderful round shaped design, where designer Lesley Teare blends two counted needlework techniques, cross stitch and blackwork, as well as seed beads, in a work of outstanding beauty.
