Here is my last crossstitch picture, for today at least.
This is a design called Tudor Rose which was in Crossstitcher, December issue I think. It will eventually end up as a cushion, and it will have a twin.
It was stitched on 16-count white Aida, using DMC 310 Black. I have to admit to not doing proper blackwork stitches, I did back stitching instead for most of if. For those who don’t know Blackwork is suppose to look identical, front and back, which the double running stitch or Holbein stitch is supposed to achieve. Backstitching is quicker though, and as the back will be covered by fabric it doesn’t matter how messy it is.
Once both cushions are made up they will be a present for MIL, her 50th is in October and black and white is her preferred colours for her house.
