Christmas blackwork mini sampler - Nordic
These Christmas blackwork blocks were inspired by Nordic patterns. Each block is a great size for making into cards or tags, or you can stitch them up as a block to make a little piece you can frame and display!
All those scraps of aida and thread that you sometimes wonder why you are saving - maybe this is their purpose! You can buy aperture cards or make you own (most of the ones pictured were made by folding some coloured card, cutting a hole and sticking the fabric to the back with a bit of tape. Then you can glue or tape a piece of card or paper to cover the back of your stitching.)
Each little square measures 28 x 28 stitches
On 14 count that's - 5 x 5 cm, on 16 count 4.5 x 4.5 cm, on 18 count 4 x 4 cm
