I am sharing Iris #2 today.
I wrote in my last post that I like to stitch a larger project when I introduce my new collections of colours. This year I chose a smaller project instead. My goal is to demonstrate how using ONE design can appear quite different and/or similar depending on the placement of colours.
Iris is designed by Diane Grant. I chose Iris because it is small measuring about 3 inches square on 18 count canvas to highlight my summer collection.
Last week I showed you the first version of Iris and here is the second one. I think you will agree that this one appears quite different with using the darker Colour #65.
This sample features size 5 perle cotton in colours #64, #65, #120 and Kreinik Braid #6 and #1
If you wish to stitch ALL four samples, one skein of size 5 perle cotton will be sufficient in Colours 63, 64, 65 and 120. Both Kreinik Braid Colour #6 or Colour #1 would work well with the palette.
Remember, the pattern is available in the January/February 2020 issue of Needlepoint Now.
So, what do you think? Do you like it?
Stay tuned for the third sample on Wednesday
