Today I’m sharing the final results of my Rainforest Crunch needlepoint project! Yes, there are mistakes. Remember this is my first needlepoint project. Stitching this project made me realize that I almost always dye either medium or dark value threads – where was I? I obviously gravitate to these values.
If I were to stitch this again, I would definitely create more contrast using light values. Having said this, I am pleased with the results as I feel the design showcases my threads which was my original goal. As always, there is room for improvement but I can only go up from here!
Just a refresher. Rainforest Crunch is a pattern by NeedleDelights. It will be available for order through your local needlework shop or from Kathy’s website. It measures about 8 inches square on 18 count canvas. While all these colours have since been discontinued there are many options to choose from in my shop so stop by for a visit.
Stitching this gave me lots of ideas for other projects, two of which are underway. I’ll be sharing these in future posts once I get a bit farther ahead. Now I need to get busy in the dye studio and dye some light values! Have a great weekend – guess you know where I will be..
