A NEEDLEPOINT stitch sample today showcasing Colour #45.
If you have been following my posts this week, you will know this is Freda Murfin’s “Tidbits” pattern 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.
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.
Sherry, one of the members of the group has stitched this sample. This square features three of the colours in my new Summer Collection. Colour #45 is a dark rich blend of aquamarine, purple and olive green which you can see in the outer perimeter and repeated again in the square. Colour#44 is a gorgeous blend of blue, fuchsia and golden brown. Colour #43 is a blend of blue and aquamarine. All three colours blend well.
I hope you have enjoyed the samples this week. As you can see my summer collection is quite versatile. Have a great weekend with more next week.
