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.
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 🙂
This is my own design, stitched on unbleached linen (10 threads/cm) using whole and half cross stitches. Size is 110 x 23 cm.
Some years ago, our old oak tree was felled. I saved a few small pieces. They now form a pattern on this small tablecloth. The pattern is made with full and half cross stitches, back stitches and contour stitches on linen canvas. Finished size is approx. 27 x 27 cm. I am very happy about the result!
