I wanted to share some stitch samples of my SUMMER COLLECTION today. I mentioned last week that I played with teal blues and golden browns to create this selection of colours. Colour #26 (top left) is a beautiful combination of golden brown, teal blue and a touch of seafoam (blue/green). Colour #29 (top right) is a blend of variations of values of golden brown and Colour #28 (bottom right) is a combination of various values of teal. All three work very well together.
Last week I mentioned my inspiration for some of my summer collection came from a fish photograph! Colour #30 (top left) is a gorgeous blend of golden yellows and pinks. Colour #32 (top right) is a blend of turquoise, golden yellow with hints of green. Colour #33 (bottom left) is a blend of intense blue and various values of turquoise. This particular combination was extremely difficult to photograph – it is absolutely stunning “in person”! All three of these combinations blend very well.
Last but not least is my strawberry blend, Colour #31 – emerald green and various values of red/pink – lovely!
I have used reversed scotch stitch, byzantine and trellis couching in my stitch samples. I think it is about time to show how I used some of these – stay tuned!
