SEE PINCUSHION DESIGN AS WELL. This little design, measuring 7″ x 1 1/2″ (16 x 4cm) introduces a beginner to simple stumpwork techniques.
Due to demand for the sheep on linen, this has been stitched as a triptych on linen – see Counting Sheep in a line on green.
For the picture I decided to work with drizzle stitch only, as it lends itself so well to the curly coats of the sheep but both designs can be done either way! Little wired horns complete the design. (With the pincushion, I have used drizzle stitch for one sheep, a slip of French knots appliqued onto the background and a couched woollen thread for the third.)
This is a complete kit containing everything needed to complete the design other than for a hoop. The design can be embroidered using a 7″ or 17cm hoop.
All of my designer kits are beautifully packaged and presented in sturdy carrier bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
