Lesley Tear Designs tells us "Almost as in a dance, a tiny hummingbird approaches a hibiscus
flower, with petals wide open and stamen reaching out, ready to
polinate. The Hibiscus flower is exquisitely depicted in Blackwork, each
of its large petals containing a different motif and creating a
cross stitch, Blackwork is a counted thread technique, with stitches
represented on a grid. A majority of stitches are backstitch, with some
cross stitch filling certain areas. The chart comes with an extensive Stitching Guide detailing all stitches including fractional stitches.Stitch count is 140 x 140
Stitches include Cross stitch and Backstitch.
We suggest stitching on 32 count Antique White Belfast linen and stitching with DMC, Kreinik, Pearl cotton size 8 and 10 optional. Design is also embellished with Mill Hills seed Beads in Gold.
Please check the boxes above to add the chart, linen and threads to your order.
