Some lovely embroidered KALEIDOSCOPES today. These are two patterns stitched by Diane, a fellow Canadian.
Diane has stitched the example above using Colour Complements Colour #10 in a size 5 perle cotton and and Colour Complements Colour #35, also in a size 5 perle cotton. She has also used Colour Complements Colour #32 below in cotton floss. Both measure between 13-16 cm in diameter (5 to 6 inches) and the background is a cotton linen blend.
The kaleidoscopes are from Mary Corbett’s eBook, “Favorite Kaleidoscopes”. You can purchase the eBook on NeedleNThread here. The book features 30+ kaleidoscope patterns for hand embroidery ranging in size from 4 to 8 inches.
Thank you Diane!
