NEEDLEPOINT; Colour Complements embroidery threads

As promised another NEEDLEPOINT sample today and another beauty.

The pattern is Freda Murfin’s Tidbits #1 and is available at Freda’s Fancy Stitching.  Each “tidbit” measures 3 ½ inches square on 18 count canvas.

Susan created this gorgeous sample using a similar combination of colours and threads as I showed in Marie’s sample on Monday.  Susan has used Colours #52 and Colour #162 in a size 5 perle cotton, Colour #50 in a size 8 perle and Colour #51 in cotton floss.  She added hints of DMC #3051 in green and some flat ribbon in the center and corners.  You could easily substitute Neon Rays for the flat ribbon.


If it interests you, I have put together a thread kit of all three of my spring collection in size 5 perle cotton along with Kreinik 1/16” ribbon in purple.  You could add Colour Complements Colour #162 and you might like to pick up some 6 strand floss in Colour #51 for this tidbit.  You could easily substitute Neon Rays for the flat ribbon used in the pattern.  Shop the Spring Collection.

Thank you Susan. That is the end of the Spring Collection samples so I will be moving onto something a bit different on Friday – stay tuned!
