Mono Canvas designs

These patterns are all designed to be stitched on 18 count mono canvas.

Most of my designs have a choice of colourways in which they can be stitched. When a chart is bought the thread lists for all colourways available at time of purchase will be included with the stitching instructions.

How to Buy

 

For details on buying any of the charts for my designs please click the button below.

Seasonal Cross

Chart   £15  +p&p

Seasonal cross is a charted needlework design with a choice of four seasonal colours. The instructions include the thread lists for all four colourways. The finished design is approx. 25cm (10 inches) square.

The threads used are Caron Watercolours and Wildflowers, Rainbow Gallery Neon Rays, Kreinik #8 and #16 braids and DMC floss  and Perle 5 (threads and canvas are not included with the chart).

Elements

Chart   £15  +p&p

Elements is a charted needlework design with a choice of colours based on the four elements - Air, Fire, Water and Earth. The instructions include the thread lists for all four colourways. The finished design is approx. 22cm (just under 9 inches) square.

The threads used are ThreadworX overdyed cotton floss and DMC floss, perle 5 and 8 (threads and canvas are not included with the chart).

Elements Squared

Chart   £15  +p&p

A companion piece to Elements with a choice of colours based on the four elements of life - Air, Fire, Water and Earth. The instructions include the thread list for all four colourways. However in this case, as the canvas forms part of the design, the final appearance can be changed by choosing an alternative canvas colour. This gives a total of 8 different options - 4 when stitched on cream mono canvas and another 4 when stitched on the alternative canvas colour. See the pictures below for Air stitched on cream mono canvas. Fire on red canvas and Water on turquoise canvas. The finished design is approx. 23cm (9 inches) square.

The threads used are ThreadworX overdyed cotton floss and DMC floss, perle 8 and 12 - although this design uses larger quantitie of the DMC floss than Elements (threads and canvas are not included with the chart).

Southwark

Chart   £20 +p&p

The inspiration for this piece came whilst walking past Southwark Cathedral one morning - a section of stonework on one of its buttresses caught my eye, luckily my husband had his camera with him!!

The initial two colourways have now been joined by another three options for those of you who do not want to stitch on black canvas. The finished design is approx. 35 x 17cm (14 x 6.5 inches).

The threads used include Rainbow Gallery Splendor and Neon Rays, Kreinik #8 braid and Silk Serica and DMC floss and Perle 8 (threads and canvas are not included with the chart).

Storm at Sea

Chart  £30  +p&p

The inspiration for this design came whilst messing about with a new quilting app on my iPad one evening. I set the quilt block to Storm at Sea, the size to three blocks square and the number of colours to two and then kept pressing the "random" button. A few clicks later and this variation popped off the screen. The design has a total of nine Storm at Sea blocks rotated in various directions. The finished design is approx. 38cm (15inches) square.

As this design uses 26 different threads and two colours of Mill Hill beads it will be a bit more expensive to stitch than my other designs. The threads include Caron Watercolors and Impressions, Rainbow Gallery Splendor, Neon Rays, Petite Treasure Braid, Flair and Neon Rays Plus, Kreinik Silk Serica and metallic braids, ThreadworX overdyed cotton floss as well as other overdyed silk flosses and cotton perle threads. The colour of the 18ct mono canvas needed will depend on the colourway chosen (threads and canvas are not included with the chart).

It is at present available in the four colourways shown below. To get an impression of what the Black/White and Peaches/Cream colourway might look like have a peep at Zephyr, which has been stitched in these colours.

Zephyr

Chart £25 +p&p

This charted needlework design is also based on the Storm at Sea quilt block but this time there are only four blocks used - and a border. This design uses fewer threads than the Storm at Sea design so it will be slightly cheaper to stitch, but I have added many more beads. This design contains many elements from the Storm at Sea design which have been combined in different ways and altered to make use of the new threads and beads used. The finished design is approx. 36.5cm (14.5 inches).

The threads used include Caron Watercolors, Vineyard Silk Classic, Rainbow Gallery Splendor, Neon Rays, Petite Treasure Braid and Flair, Kreinik Silk Serica and metallic braids, ThreadworX overdyed cotton floss and DMC perle. The beads used are by Mill Hill. The colour of the 18ct mono canvas needed will depend on the colourway chosen (threads and canvas are not included with the chart).

It is at present available in four colourways - two of which are shown below. To get an impression of what the Bronze/Green and Jade/Grey colourways might look like have a peep at the pictures of the Storm at Sea design which has been stitched in these colours.

Satchmo

Chart  £15 +p&p

A charted needlework design with a choice of two very different colourways - either bold or soft - depending on your mood! The finished design is approx. 22cm (8.7inches) square.

The threads used are ThreadworX overdyed cotton floss and Perle 8 and Rainbow Gallery Splendor, Neon Rays and Petite Treasure Braid (threads and canvas are not included with the chart).

Trane

Chart   £15 +p&p

A charted needlework design with instructions given for two colourways. The finished design is approx. 20.5cm (8 inches) square.

The threads used are ThreadworX overdyed cotton floss, Rainbow Gallery Neon Rays Plus, DMC floss and Mill Hill beads (threads, canvas and beads are not included with the chart).

Magic Carpet

Chart   £10  +p&p

This design is based on a motif in a carpet my husband and I bought in Marrakesh as few years ago which is now hanging(!) on a wall in our house. Although care needs to be taken with counting when stitching the initial outlines, it is otherwise a fairly easy design to stitch.  As it takes just 4 balls of DMC perle 8 thread it is also fairly easy for the stitcher to change the colours to suit their own tastes. The chart includes details of the threads chosen to stitch the colourway shown below but not the canvas or threads. The finished size is approx 28.5 x 21cm (9 x 8 inches).

This photo showed what happened when just one colour is changed. One of my customers - Lesley - changed the dark peach of my colour way to a brown thread
