Lesley Teare Needlework design

Summer Beauty

1st May 2014

The waterlily and dragonfly seem to complement each other perfectly, and this design, worked in a gorgeous palette of pink and green threads, with bolder golden yellows for highlights is an absolute favourite with me. With the addition of pearl seed beads and stitched on a lovely dove grey cashel linen this will be one of my all time favourite designs.


The design can certainly be turned into a cushion but I have to say that the frame that the editor, Medina Bailey has chosen is beautiful; the ornate cream and gold surround sets this picture off to perfection.


This design, along with two more, can be found in Cross Stitch GOLD magazine, issue 111.
