Bizarre Beauty

 

There are sometime bizarre phenomenons in nature. The seashorse for instance is actually a fish, looking like a seashell and with a horse's head, which is why its also called the hippocampus. It's strange body is depicted here in amazing detail, with bold colors that enhance its singular form.

Taking a little Break

 

There's always a little story behind Lesley Teare's portraits. Where has this young lady come from, smartly dressed and taking off her shoes at the far end of the garden, among the hollyhocks... We'll leave it to your imagination while you cross stitch this pretty portrait.

By the ramparts of Seville

 

A dazzling Carmen, in a cross stitch portrait enhanced with beads. The black lace effect, framing the embroidery, is a clever combination of cross stitch and backstitch. But the highlight of the embroidery is no doubt the black fan with gold threads motifs, and the exquisite face of the dancer.

This is an exceptional piece of needlework, brought to you by Lesley Teare.

Lady in Black

 

An elegant black sheath dress, a delicate profile, garlands of flowers and butterflies, all of this is achieved through the technique of Blackwork. The basis of the Blackwork is backstitch, thanks to which designs of remarkable precision, including delicate lines, can be created.

 

The great advantage of Blackwork, compared to traditional embroidery, is that it is a counted technique. As with cross stitch, the needle is guided with absolute precision by the warp and weft threads of the fabric, ensuring a perfectly identical reproduction of the initial design.

Mini motifs

 

To get started, what better than a chart chockfull of mini patterns, including a couple of tiny ones, perfect for scissor fobs, to some large enough to decorate a greeting card or a pincushion. Lesley Teare likes to combine Blackwork and Color. These cheerful motifs are full of birds, butterflies and flowers.

Design - inspired by nature

 

Nature has always been, and will probably remain, the main inspiration for embroidery. So when a skilled needlework designer such Lesley Teare, a keen observer of birds, lets herself be carried away by her inspiration, great things happen. A great tit appears in cross stitch, a clematis flower blooms in Blackwork, colors blend seamlessly, the background fills with butterflies and life. A small masterpiece is born.

More nature inspired blends of Blackwork & Cross stitch

 

Here the focus is on the colorful kingfisher. Blackwork flowers spout from all around, mimicking nature's lush pondside plant life.  Once again, cross stitch and Blackwork blend seamlessly, through the clever use of color.

Blackwork & Butterfly card - revisited

 

It is always fascinating to see how a design can "live" as it is recreated by each stitcher. Sometimes the pattern is worked exactly as stated in the design, and sometimes the stitcher will make her own interpretation. Here is an example of how Lesley Teare's original design - stitched on white in the top left corner - was interpreted by Marie-Christiane.

As you will see, there are a number of variations that the stitcher applied to the design. A different color background, replacing some stitches with beads, etc. "Lesley's patterns are a treat to stitch." says Marie Christiane. We find her stitched piece exquisite, don't you?

Crazy Quilting

 

Crazy quilts became hugely popular in Victorian times and if you're lucky you might come across one at a flea market. They combine pieces of irregular shapes into a patchwork, each piece assembled to the next using a variety of embroidery stitches such a feather stitch.

This cross stitch pattern designed by Lesley Teare is inspired by those late 19th century designs. It incorporates different "printed fabric" motifs as well as many different scraps of "lace".

Learn the ropes

 

While many of Lesley Teare's patterns are basic cross stitch pieces, some designs incorporate a few fractional cross stitches. A typical combination would be a three-quarter cross-stitch combined with a quarter cross stitch in another color. These stitches are necessary when very fine definition is needed such as for delimitating a face and hair.

If you've never tried factional stitches before, or you are a little puzzled on how to proceed, Lesley's here to help!

Check out Lesley Teare's extensive cross stitch guide that comes with every pattern. It includes step by step tutorials for each and every fractional stitch and well as other helpful tips.

No surprises:

All pattern descriptions include detailed information about number of colors, size and materials used. To help you select the pattern that's right for you, we have specified for each design which stitches are used in the chart.
