I’ve titled this post Iris revisited because I am showing a new version of Iris.  If you recall when I introduce new collections, I like to stitch several small samples to give you ideas how the threads blend and/or coordinate.  I shared several versions of Iris showcasing my summer collection this year.  **Check under categories – needlepoint stitch samples in the right sidebar.

Iris is designed by Diane Grant and featured in Needlepoint Now, the January/February 2020 issue.  It measures about 3 inches square on 18 count canvas.  I like this pattern because it is small and stitches up relatively quickly.

So, what colours were used?

This makes a lovely colour palette for both Iris as well as perhaps a larger design.  I think the addition of the pearl beads look fabulous, what do you think?

More ideas coming soon.  Thank you D.
