Today, my stitch sample is all about Colour #120.

While I stitch these samples for my personal stitch library, I hope they will allow customers to “see” how the colours blend and what they look like when stitched.  My goal is to have a stitch sample video for each colour I dye – EVENTUALLY!

Colour #120 is one of my new colours in my Summer Collection.  I originally introduced this colour several years ago.  I discontinued it for a couple of years but have brought it back again changing the formula slightly.  I like it more now.  A gorgeous blend of brilliant greens, purple and blues. 


In the video, I am stitching on 18 count mono canvas using a size 5 perle cotton.  The stitch is called a Hungarian Grid.  I suspect you will find this online but I like to use Stitches by Ruth Schmuff and Kathy Holicky.  There are four volumes of these books which are a great reference.  I highly recommend them.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Several years ago Canadian designer Carolyn Mitchell created a small Christmas ornament stitched using Colour #120.  You can find this ornament on her website HERE.
