Always fun to share one of the needlepoint stitch samples from my stitch group. Earlier this year I supplied the group with a selection of colours celebrating spring and summer so they have been quite busy coming up with various colour combinations. I always look forward to see how they opt to combine colours.
Desert Rose is designed by Laura Perin and available as a freebie on the Rainbow Gallery website
The sample measures 3 ½ inches square on 18 count canvas. If you are not familiar with Laura’s design, please visit her website. She is a needlepoint designer based in the United States.
Susan stitched this sample with the colour palette shown above in size 5 perle cotton and 6 strand floss. One skein of each will be sufficient for the design and you should be able to get a second sample as well.
- Colour #41 – variations of pinks
- Colour #18 – greens
- Colour #183 – purples
- Colour #184 – spring greens, 6 strand floss
- Kreinik 1/16″ ribbon – purple
