Taetia’s new design is a whimsical delight! With little creatures, exotic fruits and fantasy flowers, the design is sure to delight and fascinate! The colours are a clever blend of soft and bold, and the stitches have textures and layers that add interest and detail, with just a delicate touch of sparkle.
A refreshing twist on traditional crewelwork.
With the design printed on linen twill, you can start stitching straight away. Taetia has used traditional crewel techniques and some new stitches. Detailed instructions are provided, however, it is recommended to have your stitch guide handy.
Included are full colour detailed instructions and linen twill with the design printed on it.
The design is 26cm (10 inches) x 29cm (11 inches).
Sufficient fabric is allowed for you to make your panel into a cushion if you wish.
‘Jacobean’ Linen Twill is made from flax grown on four farms in the far north of Scotland, far enough away from pollution to produce the natural “oatmeal with honey” colour. It is woven by a specialist historic textile weaver.
The fabric is in a traditional “Z” twist, with a high thread count, faithfully replicating linen used in the best crewel pieces from the 17th and 18th Centuries in England and Scotland. Taetia says it is a joy to stitch on!
