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. 

Thank you Susan.  You can find all these colour combinations in the shop by clicking on the highlights above.  Want more stitch samples – check them out under Needlepoint.
