Another variation in my ongoing needlepoint stitch samples series. I thought it was time for a bit of blue. The blue I’ve used is a size 5 perle cotton, colour #175 which is a light to medium value blend of blues. The four corners were stitched in a scotch stitch using size 5 perle cotton, colour #164 which provides a great accent. The continental outer border, inner border and inner corners were all stitched in a solid dark blue for contrast. The central star area accent is stitched with a size 5 perle, colour #121. If I were to stitch this again I would use a colour combination that contrasted more than the #121, perhaps a solid apricot or orange blend. You could also repeat the colour #164 too. Lots of variations!
As much as I’ve enjoyed creating these small needlepoint stitch samples, I think it may be time to move onto perhaps a larger project.
I have LOTS of ideas but am thinking I should custom dye a palette SO looks as if I will be spending some time in the dye studio… Now if I could just decide on what pattern to begin – oh the choices….
Have a great weekend!
