no 1: square in cross stitch, based upon traditional Hungarian motifs
First, below, you see a drawing of the design. Traditionally things like this were embroidered in red and black. Other colors are also possible, but they need to contrast. Further down there are two working drawings, together a bit more then a quarter of the whole designs. That's enough, turning the pictures by 90 degrees you can go on working. Printing the designs on A4 paper, the working drawings should be good enough to work with. It depends on you printer if the gray lines will come through. Anyway, if you have problems send me an email.
The square measures 167x167 stitches. Embroidering on cloth with 10 threads per centimeter and making cross stitches over two threads the result will be about 33x33 centimeter.
Next week a bit more with the same motifs.

You have permission to copy and/or print the working drawings for own use. If you send me a photograph with the result I put it on this site.
