Description

This counted blackwork Under the Sea embroidery kit features some lovely DMC Colour Variations threads and just a hint of gold.

A great introduction to blackwork embroidery complete with chart and full instructions, it forms a mini course in its own right.

This is the first in a series of marine designs which we have created for blackwork and cross stitch.

Blackwork is very similar to cross stitch but works much faster due to the stitches covering a larger area. This piece could easily be completed in a weekend.

Each area of the anchor, shell and sea horse is worked in a different blackwork stitch with another stitch used to create the impression of water.

Blending the threads creates a subtle variation in colour and the piece is finished with a lovely metallic thread for the broken anchor chain.

The kit comes complete with everything needed to complete the design which measures 17 x 16 cm approx. when complete. It is available on Antique white 28 count evenweave or 16 count Aida.

Main elements of the design are pre drawn in water soluble ink.

Frame is for illustration purposes only.

This kit caught my eye when I saw it on Craft Courses, it looked so pretty and fresh colours. I received mine very quickly and it is so nicely packaged and a good deal of fabric and other embellishments too. I set great store by how things I buy are packaged up and this was really good.

I since ordered another kit to go direct to a friend and like with me she received it very quickly and is delighted with it.

Thank you Maire for such a lovely kit

This kit arrived earlier this week and is nicely packaged and has everything needed to make the item.
The instructions look clear and the end product looks like it will be beautiful (depending on my skill!).
The only reason I didn't give this 'excellent' is due to the fact that there's no print out for the stitches required, I'm going to look them up on YouTube as I think I know what I'm doing, but a simple print out showing how to do these stitches would be useful for others.
Overall, I'd buy this kit again, or another kit from the same maker.

Response from Maire Curtis Lakeland Studio:

Hello Louise,
Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you are pleased with your kit.
I have noted your comment about the stitch guide but we do state that prior knowledge of the stitches is required so I will attempt to make this clearer on the item description.
Many thanks and happy stitching.
Maire.
