A selection of NEEDLEPOINT STITCH SAMPLES today. As most of you are aware I have developed an interest in canvas work over the last several years. As I have worked on various projects I found an increasing interest in design but felt I needed to expand my knowledge. SO, late last fall I enrolled in the Basic Canvas correspondence course offered through the Embroidery Association of Canada. There are actually three courses offered – Basic, Intermediate and Advanced.
There are a total of 6 lessons in the Basic course. Lesson 1 focuses on the straight stitch family. There were LOTS of samples to stitch so thought it would be a good opportunity to highlight some of my colour combinations that I did not have stitched samples for. This is a selection of some of my samples. All the colours I used are labelled and can be found in the shop. Stitches included Brick, Double Brick, Hungarian, Parisian to name a few. Lots of fun experimenting but WOW, did they ever take time to do!!
Sadly I found this project more time consuming than I had originally anticipated and simply could not alot the time required to complete it. So, I withdrew for now but I would not be surprised I’ll pursue it again in the future. I will however have a lovely selection of needlepoint stitch samples for future reference!
You can find all the colour combinations in the shop.
