Fall is nigh!


A Cutwork Series

My Cutwork collection was inspired from an old antique table linen that I own. The designs incorporate thread stops so you can sew them a multi-colors scheme, as shown here, or all one-color for a more traditional, antique look.

While I digitized the designs as cutwork, I think they looked quite nice even before the fabric was cut away.
