As promised, this is my second example of cross stitch featuring colour #72 which is a lovely coral pink blend

The sample measures about 3 ½ inches stitched on 32 count off white linen using 2 strands of floss.  This is one element from the Long Dog Sampler called Paradigm Lost.  You can find the pattern HERE.

If you recall, I shared another small cross stitch using the same colour BUT stitched on a red/brown linen versus the white. You can see that sample HERE.

Which one do you like more?  Dark or light?

Do you think the coloured linen draws out the variations of values of the coral pink or hides them more?

I follow various Russian designers and almost all use coloured canvas in their designs which are beautiful.  So perhaps I’ll need to try some in the future.
