Another great NEEDLEPOINT stitch sample today showcasing a Chorus of Colours from my Fall collection.
This fantastic example was stitched by Marie B., a member of the Victoria Embroidery Guild. When I sent my fall collection to the canvas group for stitching, I opted to send them the colours and have them combine them how they wishes and in the project(s) of their choice. I must admit, it is always such a delight to see what they come up with.
Marie has chosen a pattern designed by Marla Pelz called “A Maze in Grace” available from Rainbow Gallery. You can find it HERE. The sample is approximately 5 ½” on 18 count canvas. I could easily see this as a top in one of those wooden boxes used for needlepoint. The Very Velvet Petite has a fantastic texture in this sample – I just wish you could feel it!
All the colours are available in the shop. Here is what she used.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my American friends and customers a Happy Thanksgiving. As it is a holiday weekend in the US I will return to regular posting on Monday November 27th. Enjoy your friends and family and TURKEY!
