Lesley Teare Needlework design

Ready for Santa!

18th Sep 2014

Why not add some country charm to your home this festive season with these cheery stockings. Worked in reds, white and golden tones, it has that rustic feel but with that lovely vintage style look that is perfect for now. Although quite densely stitched it has nearly all whole stitches and the backstitches are kept in a tradional style so simple to work.The seed beads and buttons make for a fun embellishment touch which really makes this a show - stopping design.
