Special Offer: Linen with Pre-Transferred Designs (1)

In the last few years the interest in handcrafts as a whole, including embroidery, has declined. Some companies have reduced their production, and others have given up completely. Many famous linen weaving mills no longer exist. Reduced demand means that the available range of required materials is limited. Sometimes the offerings are reduced in scope, for example there are fewer choices when it comes to the weights of embroidery threads. Good sources dry up. This is also true for linens printed with Schwalm designs; there used to be a treasure trove of these. I have taken over the remaining stock of an elderly lady’s linens printed with Schwalm designs, and I am now offering them for sale.

Printed designs offer the advantage that you can start embroidering straight away. The mostly very consistent lines remain visible until the end of the embroidery work. However, they can be washed out with a special detergent.

The designs are all applied to high quality linen. It is article # 925 from Weddigen; the 16/cm thread count linen that is most commonly used for Schwalm whitework.

Sometimes there are only single pieces left: all will be sold on a first come, first served basis. So please don’t hesitate to order here: info@luzine-happel.de

An Easter Egg Border

Easter eggs are especially suited for trying out different patterns. Because of the rounded shape without small or pointed areas, the arrangement of the pattern at the edges is easy to work. I wanted a border design, but there were so many issues to consider: Which sizes of eggs create a nice balance? Which shapes are best? How tall should they be? How should they be angled? I preferred to ask an artist; Artist Gudrun Hartwig designed this special Easter border.

The border shows Easter eggs lying in the grass. Some Easter eggs lie on the straight of grain and some on the bias. I decided to decorate the edges of a square tea cloth with the border. It measures 75 cm X 75 cm.
1_12-2017To simulate grass, I used “Trachtenstitch” (see Fancy Hems pages 14–16).
2_12-2017Each of the fifty-four eggs got its own special pattern. This was a real pleasure to stitch. I used exclusively square eyelet patterns, most can be found in my Limetrosen I book. The patterns in Limetrosen I are perfect for the egg shapes. And the variety of patterns in the book is vast – there are patterns for small shapes and big shapes, patterns appropriate for working on the straight of grain and on the bias. There are even some patterns for slanting shapes.
3_12-2017The Easter eggs can be decorated with striped patterns
4_12-2017or with dots.
5_12-2017The Limetrosen patterns use more thread than many other stitches. But the effect of the threads, dense and lying in different directions on top of the fabric, is very pleasant indeed. Chiaroscuro – the interplay of light and shadow – makes the border beautiful, although is is unadorned. My tea cloth is eye catching. The whitework is timeless; it complements all kinds of crockery, flowers, and contemporary decorations.
