Item details

My love of the Oak leaf is probably obvious with my logo having an Acorn in it :-) I have a lot of Oak trees around my neighbourhood so am able to collect the acorns and leaves and used the leaf shapes I collected to come up with this design. This is a contemporary design which takes traditional stitching techniques into a smaller shape which I hope will help you finish it faster :-). It is a freeform outline with counted thread work as the design fills. This design can be matched with Gingko. This design is best suited to an intermediate stitcher.

Available as Template (including all Instructions) only or Kit.

Kit Contains:
-Detailed instructions and template for design (needs to transferred to linen)
-32 ct Belfast col. 'Dirty Linen' Linen (as shown in photos but can be changed-Raw colour option) (please choose in options)
-DMC Perle 12 and stranded cotton col.310
-needle (24)
-Kit does not include the backing or trim.

Finished size the pillow (cushion) is 38 x 38 cm (15 x 15 inches)
Finished design size 20.5 cm square (8 inches square)
This design also looks great framed.

Together with Gingko these pillows (cushions) will add a lovely hand-stitched texture to any room with the satisfaction you have when creating yourself!

Blackwork Embroidery has been practiced for many centuries with methods changing as a result of the development of different materials and styles over this time. Today Blackwork remains heavily influenced by Moorish designs and now commonly uses threads in colours other than black. This is an example using geometric blackwork patterning.
