Angel 2021

Embroidered on linen canvas (8 threads per cm.), with full cross stitches and contour stitches.

Threads used:

  • 341 flora-cotton from fru zippe (or 310 from DMC)
  • E 168 SILVER 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.

Flower

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 🙂

Streams

This runner is made with cross stitches, half stitches and contour stitches on linen (10 threads per centimeter). Made with flora cotton thread (fru zippe). Finishes size about 110 x 25 cm.

You can repeat the pattern in the direction of the arrow to match the desired length.

Christmas Trees

Made with Ombré yarn no. 53 from DMC. I have cut the yarn into lengths so that the pieces change from dark to light. The dark end of the yarn begins at the bottom of each strip in the pattern so that the light end of the yarn ends at the top of the trees. The stitches are contour stitches and half cross stitches. 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

Angel 2020

Runner stitched using cross- and back-stitches on linen, 10 threads/cm. Size approx. 28 x 102 cm.

The pattern was created from a black and white sketch, using a PC. Some of the initial sketch lines were edited a bit, to make them better suited for back-stitches. The light grey stitches help to make the pattern more clear, and the blue stitches gives the pattern form. The dark silver stitches are added along the edges for more detail.

Pleated Oak

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!
