Today, my stitch sample video showcases a teal blue colour feature. We are using Colour #28 which is a beautiful blend of medium to darker teal blue.
If you’ve purchased Colour #28 in the past, I have recently adjusted the formula for this new dye lot. I did this as I have a second blue, Colour #175 which is a blend of lighter variations of blue shades. I wanted to ensure I had variety in my colour combinations.
Last year I featured Colour #28 in my version of Plum Sparkle, one of three designs called Courtly Checks. You will find the pattern in the July/August issue of Needlepoint Now. Don’t forget that if you enter #175 in the search bar on my website (very top right side) a list of the product along with various samples will pop up.
You could easily combine both blues in a project but there are lots of other opportunities to create a palette. What about a really bold blend by adding Colour #53 OR perhaps a spring blend with Colour #23. I find blue very versatile so experiment.
A Closer Look At This Teal Blue Colour Feature
I always like to show my colour combinations stitched in a sample to give you a “visual” of the colour blend. For reference, you will find the stitch in the Stitches Book Volume One by Ruth Schmuff and Kathy Holicky. These books are ones that I like to use for my stitch samples as the diagrams are very easy to follow.
I hope you enjoy the video and make sure you visit the shop to see the beautiful teal blue that makes up Colour #28! Remember, blue works well combined with a wide variety of colours AND Colour #28 would work beautifully for those of you who do cross stitch.
