Lesley Teare Needlework design

Elegant Anemones

21st Dec 2012

This design is to be found in the new redesigned Chart of the Month in the latest Cross Stitch Collection. Here you can read a bit more about my designs and get expert tips from the stitcher of the design -Gill Muggeridge says 'I love to stitch anything to do with flowers and the anemones were very realistic when stitched' There are no backstitches as I wanted the design to rely solely on the shapes and colours of the flowers to give the picture its lovely textural, painterly effect. Gill has a few tips to share with you when working cross stitch like this and I'm sure you will agree the end result looks super.
