This is a floral work stitched all in one tone agans a "plain" background fabric. The models were stitched using Weeks Dye Works (for the small floral design) and Soie Crystale (for the larger floral design) & both designs were worked on 28 count Lambswool Linen. Th designs are stitched entirely with Cross Stitches & Backstitches using 2 strands of floss. The models were worked in Burgundy tones but you should feel free to use another floss colour for a look which will more closely match the colours in your home. When working Cross Stitches using an overdyed floss please complete each stitch before going on to the next in order to see the best progression of colour in your work. It is also best to select all overdyed skeins at once so that dye lot variations are kept to a minimum.
