Today, my stitch sample is Colour #69.

Colour #69 is one of four new colours in my fall collection. This is a gorgeous combination of red violets and purples. I did have a similar colour combination several years ago, Colour #166 but I believe this combination is better.
This sample is stitched on 18 count mono canvas in the video in a size 5 perle cotton. The stitch is a willow stitch. I use the Stitches books by Ruth Schmuff and Kathy Holicky for my samples. The omega stitch can be found in Volume 1 on page 156. Just a note that there are four volumes of these books which would be a great addition to your library.
I stitch these samples for my personal stitch library but I hope they will allow you to “see” how the colours blend and the appearance of the colour variations when stitched. Yes, I am continuing to stitch video samples for each colour I sell but it is taking a long…………. Time.
I hope you enjoy the video.
