is a very old type of embroidery which is thought to have originated in medieval England.
It is made up of a sort of counted background motive which is then woven with another thread to form little flowers.
I decided to make a little needle book and team the Wessex embroidery with some of my own ideas.
It is worked on 28ct evenweave fabric.
I used variegated Chameleon threads and added some petite beads around the border as well as a little verse on the back of the booklet
Feel free to print and use the pattern below. Please bear with me, I am still learning about adding photos to my blog. Below is a scanned copy of the design. I have no idea how to convert designs out of EasyCross to put up on my blog yet. Will practice though.
Enjoy your stitching.....:)
