perle cotton, perle cotton embroidery thread, hand dyed perle cottonYou can imagine how thrilled I was to receive this in the mail earlier this fall.  Barb has created this lovely needlepoint gift using ALL my hand dyed perle cotton.  This is her original design – don’t you think it turned out fantastic!  I must admit, Barb has quite a lovely selection of my threads…..  She took the design as you go approach and wrote the following,

“Will be mounting it on the lid of a Sudberry House Simply Square box as a Christmas gift.  I think of this project as “Lorraine’s cats” for obvious reasons.  It was a simple, quick design, fun to stitch and very versatile.  I may well adapt the basic kitty head to some other configurations.  I’m not at all displeased with how it came out, but can easily spot where I would do some things differently next time.  I didn’t pre-plan colour placements particularly, just sort of grabbed and stitched as I went.  But a little pre-planning would have helped with balance of lights/darks, pinks/purples, blues/greens etc.”
