Lesley Teare Needlework design

FREE Christmas sampler

22nd Aug 2017

In just 12 weeks stitch yourself this lovely Christmas sampler or, if preferred, all of the motifs will make lovely Christmas cards. Here is the list of threads that you will need and the quantities. I will be adding a new motif each week throughout the next 3 months, in good time to have it finished for Christmas. 


On Friday, 1st September, the first design of leaves and red berries will be added to my website showing the border and this first motif. Blue lines will also indicate where the other 11 motifs will be going. The blue lines will be for guidance only and should NOT be stitched.


In my opinion, this design will be better stitched on a natural coloured fabric, either a 14 count Aida or 28 count evenweave, but, it is entirely up to you - I just want you all to enjoy it. 


The fabric size you will need is: 14.6 x 17 inches /  371 x 431 mm


I'm doing this not like a normal SAL as I want you to see the complete design so that you can make the decision whether to join me and work towards the Christmas festivities.
