crystal waters

Last week I posted the first of my Crystal Waters posts showcasing my new spring collection of colours.

If you recall, the ladies who stitch up my samples chose one pattern.  I requested each stitcher use the same colour combination but placed in different locations in the design.  By doing this it really shows how much a pattern can change depending on the placement of colours. They can all look quite different!

The pattern chosen is Crystal Waters designed by Canadian designer Carolyn Mitchell.  This pattern is a collection of seven smaller designs.  We selected the scissor fob in the ensemble but added borders to increase the size to approximately three inches. 

Karen stitched the scissor fob with a minimum of borders so it is only about 2.5 inches square.  She did this as her plan is to create a smaller double sided ornament.  I’ll be showing the back side on Wednesday.

Karen used all the new spring collection colours

This sample shows more of Colour #60 which is a variegated blend of pale blue/gray, yellow and tan.  You can see this used in cotton floss and size 5 perle cotton.  Karen stitched an outer border in Colour #62 with a very simple but effective backstitch.
