Blackwork Willow 2


This is part Two of an exquisite pair of chinese landscape cross stitch patterns designed by Lesley Teare and worked in identical color schemes.


The design depicts a quiet scene in a riverside garden. In the foreground is a summer pavilion, placed in a special spot so as to better rest and enjoy the river views. The architecture and ornamentation is typical of ancient chinese buildings, with an octogonal shape and curved roof. Flowers and lush vegetation surround the pavilion. The railing in front, with typical copper fittings provides a little privacy.


Across the water, three men can be seen, fishing from a bridge.  A lone tradesman hauls its load in a boat passing by. A pagoda and a smaller pavilion can be seen on the other side of the bank. Birds fly up in the sky.


A series of lace-like Blackwork motifs,encased in square boxes, forms a frame all around the stitched piece.


The pattern is stitched in a mix of blues and black, with golden highlights, and is evocative of the ornementation found on 18th century Chinaware. Both cross stitch and Blackwork is used (fine lace-like motifs worked in backstitch).

A tutorial is included with the chart for fractional stitches used for detail of the birds and far-away characters.

A cross stitch pattern by Lesley Teare Designs.
