The final results of my FRAMED FOURSOME. I shared the individual squares over the last several posts so today is the complete project. In case you missed it, FRAMED FOURSOME is a geometric pattern celebrating the four seasons designed by Peg Dunayer. You can find the pattern in the July/August 2006 edition of Needlepoint Now on page 29. The pattern measures approximately 6” on 18 count mono.
Since colour #24 was my focus colour I chose other threads and colours to coordinate. I also decided to paint some 18 count mono canvas in orange to provide further contrast and hopefully allow my colours to POP. I knew I wanted to use #24 in the centers of each of the squares so I opted to stitch the borders using colour #25. I thought colour #4 which I introduced in my spring collection of 2016 worked well as did the blue from my Trio collection. I also added a couple of different colours of the Kreinik #8 braid, colour #5 which is blues and colour #4 which is a bold orange. You will also find a very tiny bit of the Kreinik 1/16” ribbon, colour #9 in one of the squares. The outer border is stitched with colour #24.

I am pleased with the results. One skein of each of the colours I’ve listed above will be plenty to complete the project if you wish to stitch it yourself.
