NEEDLEPOINT, Colour Complements Threads

Another NEEDLEPOINT stitch sample today showcasing Colour #44 from my new Summer Collection.

Many of you are already aware that I have a satellite group of members of the Victoria Embroiderers’ Guild who specialize in canvas work stitching samples for me.  When I completed my summer collection, I requested the ladies choose one pattern of their choice and combine colours as they wished from the collection.  I think it shows how colour can really change the look of any pattern and hopefully all the samples will provide inspiration for you in future projects.

The pattern chosen is one of Freda Murfin’s “Tidbits” available on her website, Freda’s Fancy Stitching HERE.  “Tidbits” are nine small patterns measuring a little under 3 ½” square on 18 count canvas.  These would be great combined in a group or individually as ornaments.

Colour #44 is a really stunning blend of blue, fuchsia and golden brown with hints of green.  Susan, one of the members of the group has stitched this sample.  Susan chose Colour #37 to complement which is a blend of orange and golden yellows – very intense!  She has further accented using a DMC colour #996 which is a turquoise/blue solid. NEEDLEPOINT, Colour Complements Threads
