Today, my stitch sample is Colour #51.

Colour #51 is a medium value blend of lavender and red violet. It works well with colour #50 (lavender, aqua and pale yellow).
This sample is stitched on 18 count mono canvas in the video in a size 5 perle cotton. The stitch is a Squared Herringbone stitch. I use the Stitches books by Ruth Schmuff and Kathy Holicky for my samples. You will find this stitch in Volume 1 on page 258. Just a note that there are four volumes of these books which would be a great addition to your library.
When using a size 5 for a layered stitch such as the Norwich, you will find it gives a very solid coverage. If you wanted slightly less coverage try using a size 8 perle or perhaps cotton floss.
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.
