I am happy to announce that one of my Schwalm whitework projects has made it into the world-class magazine Inspirations – the world´s most beautiful needlework.
My cushion with a typical Schwalm motif was professionally presented and beautifully brought to life on the pages of the magazine.
The pattern was named From the Heart. Embroidered with white thread on natural coloured linen, it creates a magnificent effect.
The typical motifs of basket, heart, tulip and circle were effectively filled with simple, openwork and Limet withdrawn-thread patterns and needlelace. Tendrils and small leaves fill in the gaps.
Detailed instructions can be found in the magazine. Best of all, Inspirations has put together a kit. With the right materials, one can easily start embroidering such a project.
If you ever get a chance to visit Adelaide, be sure to take the opportunity to look around and to shop at the Bobbin Tree store – a great treasure trove for any needlework enthusiast.
