Introducing SEA STAR designed by Susan who is a member of the Embroiderers Guild of Victoria and the canvas stitch group I attend. She is both a talented stitcher and designer. I was thrilled when she offered to design an original pattern highlighting some of my summer collection.
The pattern measures 5.25 inches square on 18 count mono canvas. The sample has been stitched on white canvas but I could see a background in a pale green, pale red violet or perhaps a very pale turquoise/blue, all of which would look beautiful.
I am offering a thread kit which INCLUDES THE PATTERN in my shop.
- Colour #54 = 2 skeins 6 strand floss
- Colour #55 = 1 skein size 8 perle cotton
- Colour #55 = 1 skein 6 strand floss
- Red Violet Blend = 1 skein size 5 perle cotton
- Colour #162 = 2 skeins 6 strand floss
- Colour #162 = 1 skein size 8 perle cotton
- Colour #162 = skein size 12 perle cotton
- Sea Star PDF pattern
There are a total of 120 meters/131.2 yards of thread in the kit.
You can find the thread kit and pattern in the shop under Embroidery Samplers. This would make a great stitch project for the summer – small and portable. I would like to extend my appreciation to Susan for this lovely design – thank you Susan!
This completes all the stitch samples from my summer collection. I hope you have enjoyed them and perhaps they have inspired you to stitch a project or two.
I will be commencing my annual summer blog break today returning to regular posting on Monday August 26th. The SHOP REMAINS OPEN during this time and remember, I am only an email away.
