Lviv – 156h x 100w
Inspired by Ukrainian whitework, this sampler combines traditional stitches with Mabel's variations on them and is a great way to start exploring the technique. Although traditionally white on white, using strongly variegated threads produces interesting effects, while tone on tone stitching results in a quieter look with more emphasis on the texture of the stitches.
Special materials: Threadworx perle & stranded cotton or Caron Watercolours & Wildflowers.
