BLACKWORK PATTERN DESIGNED BY Lesley Teare Designs
Some honeybees buzz around a stylized poppy flower.
Coming with Lesley Teare's signature mix of Blackwork and cross stitch motifs, this flower is an exquisitely designed piece, with wonderful detail.
The whole motif is outlined, with different areas filled with tiny blackwork motifs, all different, some in combination with cross stitch. The density of the various patterns contrast with each other, providing characteristic depth. The black lines remain the dominant part of the design, yet there are some elements of color, with light touches of green and red, as well as the bright orange spots of the honeybees.
All stitches are full cross stitches or backstitch.
The pattern is the perfect size for turning into a cushion. there are 3 matching pieces in the series, why not stitch them all?
