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 pattern and print kit has the design screened (printed) onto an embroidery linen/cotton blend fabric. It also comes with muslin for backing, a full set of instructions, colour photographs, a stitch glossary as well as a stumpwork glossary. The design can be embroidered using a 7″ or 17cm hoop.
All of my pattern and print kits are beautifully packaged in cellophane bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
