On the occasion of Her Majesty the Queen’s 50th regent’s anniversary, January 14th 2022, I have designed a tablecloth with 50 daisies.
The two patterns show a total of 10 daisies. Each daisy is embroidered 5 times.
The finished size is approx. 61 x 61 cm on 8 threaded linen canvas. Dark blue and golden threads are used.
Embroidered with contour stitches and cross stitches.
The patterns are free for you to use.
Paper snakes are a favorite Christmas decoration in Denmark. We know them as “musetrapper” (mouse stairs).
Napkin (21½ x 21½ cm): Embroidered with contour stitches on 8 thread linen canvas using one thread in the needle.

I have used flora-cotton, but any yarn and color can be used.
One of the fallen leaves of autumn. DMC Pearl Cotton and remnants of flora-cotton thread. Embroidered on 8 threaded linen canvas, finished size 30 x 30 cm. Contour stitches are used, with a single thread in the needle. The outline of the leaf is embroidered with three rows of the coarse DMC Pearl Cotton. The background is embroidered with 5 remnants of flora-cotton. Use whatever colors you like.
Flowers picked from two bouquets have been the starting point for this tablecloth’s fantasy flowers. Finished size 65 x 40 cm. Embroidered on 8 threaded linen canvas.
The flowers are drawn directly on the fabric, and the outline is embroidered with 2 threads in the needle. It is embroidered with flora-cotton from fru zippe.
The structure of the flowers emerges when embroidering with 1 thread in the needle with whole and half cross stitches. That is, each flower is embroidered with just one color.
Embroidered on linen canvas (8 threads per cm.), with full cross stitches and contour stitches.
- 341 flora-cotton from fru zippe (or 310 from DMC)

Finished size approx. 35 x 55 cm.
Optional: I have pulled threads out of the fabric to create a lace-like effect from edge to edge.
With somewhat impaired, gray and colorless vision, I still got an embroidery put together. Drew an outline using a template with ballpoint pen directly on linen canvas (8 threads per. cm). Next, I could make a frame with cross stitches in double thread. I filled the frames with single thread cross stitches. My son helped me choose the colors of the yarn. He was good at interpreting my ideas and we got the right yarn numbers put together (thanks for the help!). So it became a “winter of embroidery” anyway 🙂

Stitched with a partial thread in the needle on 10 thread linen canvas 10 threads per cm. The runner’s finished size is approx. 69 x 23 cm
