Lesley Teare Needlework design

Vintage Style

18th Mar 2014

If you love the thought of crochet but can't bear to put your cross stitch needle down, then check out my latest design in Cross Stitch Crazy, issue 189 for a bright, colourful cushion, based on the vintage granny style crotchet design.

This design gives you the chance to experiment with colours, so just like the crochet style, you can use up odd lengths of thread shades to create squares in a selection of colours of your choice.

Also in this edition are a group of seven small cards. These are based on the traditional English poem; 'Monday's Child' and are suitable for any occasion. Here are a few for you to see (just click on the image and it will enlarge).

This is quite a bumper Lesley Teare package this month in Crazy as there are two free gifts in this issue; the maypole dancers by me - and the sachet was designed by Fiona Baker who is one of the charters for Crazy. Also included in this issue there is a lovely nautical scene with a red and white lighthouse and bobbing sailboats plus a gorgeous teddy bear alphabet suitable for young or old.
