Today, I am featuring a video of my Rainbow Blend, Colour #44 for this stitch sample.
Colour #44 is one of my most popular colours! It was introduced a number of years ago and was featured in the Rainbow Ribbons project last year published in Needlepoint Now. Interestingly, I actually had named this my rainbow blend prior to Kam stitching the Rainbow Ribbons project!
It is a gorgeous blend of brilliant blue, fuchsia, light golden brown with hints of green.
In the video, I am stitching on 18 count mono canvas using a size 5 perle cotton. The stitch is called a reversed scotch.
I suspect you will find this online but I like to use the Stitches books by Ruth Schmuff and Kathy Holicky. There are four volumes of these books which are a great reference. I highly recommend them.
While I stitch these samples for my personal stitch library, I hope they will allow you to “see” how the colours blend and what they look like when stitched. I continue to work on my goal to have a stitch sample video for each colour I dye. It is a long process!
I hope you enjoy the video. I’ve started doing time-lapse.
