Finished dimensions are approx. 95 x 22 cm. Stitched on linen canvas (8 threads/cm) with flora-cotton from fruzippe. DMC yarn can also be used.
Cross stitches are embroidered using two threads in the needle. Backstitches and contour stitches are embroidered using one thread in the needle.
The squared pattern is obtained by embroidering every other row with backstitches, and every other row with contour stitches.
Make rows of stitches and contour stitches at each end of the runner. The backstitches are pressed backwards, and the contour stitches forward. On linen canvas it is easy to do this using your fingers.
Embroidered with left-over DMC yarn on linen canvas (8 threads per cm.) Use as many scraps of yarn as possible. Divide into warm and cold colors. Made with three threads in the needle – whole and half cross stitches and contour stitches.
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.
