01 Jun Free Cross Stitch Chart
It was to have run in the Subscriber-Only Newsletter, sent out with our magazines to our subscribers, but Australia Post changed its requirements and it would no longer fit in as we wanted to keep bringing you all the information about exhibitions and calls for entry that we could fit.
So – here it is on our blog for you ☺
Robynn-El has called her design “Scottish Love”. She has designed it so that you may choose two colours from your family/favourite tartan (red and green have been used here). Use the darker colour (we’ve used green) for the full cross stitch (marked by the tick) in border, the straight stitch lettering and the back stitching. Use the lighter, brighter colour (we’ve used red) for the centre of the heart border (marked by the dots).
Fabric: 14 count Aida
Size 50W x 47H
Design area: 4″ square
- straight stitch for the letters
- back stitch both edges of cross stitch border
- full cross stitch for the border in 2 colours
- use 2 strands throughout
(we had to make the “a’s” look like mini “d’s” to differentiate them from the “o’s” – a limitation of the graphics program)
