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 🙂
On the occasion of Her Majesty the Queen’s 80th birthday, I have designed a daisy pattern.
The 80 flowers are embroidered on a tablecloth (linen, 10 threads per cm.), finished dimensions approx. 77 x 77 cm.
