This is a sampler of several different tapestry stitches in squares, I stitched them with tapestry wool. I also added a border around the outside of the group of squares.
This bird is stitched from a picture by artist Kate Wilson, when you have a spare moment take a look at her work, it is lovely and most of her drawings are humorous too! I printed one of the drawings and traced it onto fabric and then embroidered over the lines using back stitch and satin stitch. I framed this picture in a beautiful decorative rococo style frame.
The chart for this cross stitch is by Margaret Sherry it was in an issue of Cross Stitcher magazine last year. I think its so cute so I wanted to stitch it as soon as I saw it!
This is also stitched from a drawing by artist Kate Wilson, I used french knots, back stitch and satin stitch to embroider the picture. I painted the frame white to match with the other frames.
This beautiful vintage floral cross stitch was stitched from a chart in Cross Stitcher magazine. I framed it in an embroidery hoop that had been painted white and I added a bow at the top to hang the picture from.
This frame was also painted white and the picture is embroidered from another drawing by artist Kate Wilson.
