It is all about NEEDLEPOINT for the next several posts, in specific stitch samples. I will be focusing on Colour #186 which was originally dyed for a project designed by Canadian designer, Lorene Salt. It is a beautiful blend of teal, variations of purple and deep blue.
I have mentioned previously that I have a satellite group of members of the Victoria Embroiderers’ Guild who specialize in canvas work doing some stitching for me. This ornament was stitched by Marie and measures a little under 3” on 18 count canvas.
The pattern is from “Fun With Fibres” by Karen Dudzinski. It is a free pattern from Rainbow Gallery. You can find it HERE.
I think Marie did a wonderful job of selecting her thread choices for this project. If you would like to create this pattern you will need one skein of each of the following
Thank you Marie. Another sample on Wednesday.
