cross-stitch blackwork counted-thread

Welcome to my cross-stitch blog

Welcome to my cross-stitch blog. I intend to use this space to discuss my designs and work in progress.

Currently my site is very basic, for which I apologise but it will improve as I learn more about setting out web-pages and develop content. It is great fun to learn new skills, especially after being a keen user of the internet for a decade or more. I am working in getting some interesting links to add to the pages and have my initial “tips” emails available. As I develop or learn about new tips I will add them to this library.

Embroidery work in progress, or more truthfully work in a stalled state as the family gets through Christmas and the New Year holiday. Nearly finished is a little blackwork embroided container, based on ones that my great-aunt used years ago. I have tried to remember how they are put together and think I have come up with something workable. I will be putting this on my site as a free download.

My other design is a tray cloth, with NZ native flowers in cross-stitch, with some leaves done using pulled-thread stitches. I want to use the DMC linen threads as I love their subtle colours. So far this is still on paper, but I will be stitching the model soon.

I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas and best wishes for the new year, regards, Annette


  1. Thank you from cold and snowy Canada, Annette. The wee pod pattern is lovely, and will make perfect small gifts for my sisters and Mom - all stitchers.

  2. Hi Rosemary,

    I am happy that you liked the pod and am sure your family will love your hand-made gifts.
    Kindest regards from what should be warm and sunny New Zealand,
    but is currently having a cool and rainy Summer!
