A combination of whipped blanket, fly & chain stitch make up this design, inspired by a group of 1950’s stitchers who christened this style of stitching ‘Dorset Feather Stitchery’. 'Lady in the African Sun' by Cathy is worked on 100% cotton blue denim with colourful pure silk variegated threads. Suitable for everyone, including complete beginners, the embroidery is worked in a 10" hoop (not included in the kit) and measures approximately 9" x 7".
