Early in 2018, I posted about my Jewel Box project. Jewel Box is a counted canvas pattern designed by Laura Perin. The entire pattern measures 10×10 inches on 18 count canvas. At that time, I opted to stitch each of the diamonds individually versus the overall pattern. Each of these diamonds measure approximately 3 inches in diameter and there are four.
I wanted to showcase colour combinations and by stitching only portions of the design, they were fast for small ornaments. I will likely stitch the whole pattern one day – in the future.
Fast forward and I had them finished some time ago. Thank you Marsye.
I thought it would be a good time to share some with the holidays fast approaching. If you have been following my O Christmas tree series this would be a good time for a break and see something new.
Remember, any colour combination can be used but I thought this was a particularly festive one for the holiday season. Some of you may find it a bit different with the use of coral but I loved how it turned out. I used the following colours
- Colour Complements Size 5 perle Colour #187 (reds)
- Colour Complements Size 5 perle Colour #184 (greens)
I always like to add a bit of bling so opted for some Kreinik size 8 braid in a green. You could easily choose red if this is your preference.
So, do you like the colours? Want to give one a go. If you would like to view all the previous posts pertaining to Jewel Box check out categories – jewel box on the blog.
