Today, my stitch sample is Colour #71.

Colour #71 is one of the colours I introduced in my new spring collection. It is a lovely blend of mint green and aqua.
The sample is stitched on 18 count mono canvas in the video in a size 5 perle cotton. The stitch is an upright beaty. You will find this stitch in Volume 2 of the Stitches books on page 108. There are five volumes of the Stitches books by Ruth Schmuff and Kathy Holicky which are great reference books. I would recommend that you add these 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 quite awhile!
I hope you enjoy the video.
As it is the upcoming Easter weekend, I will be taking a short break from blogging returning on Wednesday April 7th! The shop remains open.
