Swirly is our third gnome in our Welcome Gnome series and was designed with a bright tropical colour palette, focusing on Colour #188 in our collection.
Incorporating a bright and tropical colour palette is a great way to elevate your needlepoint project. I love using orange, yellow, lime green, and navy blue for a playful and bold vibe.
These colours will add a pop of cheer to any project, and you can also experiment with different textures and stitches to create a multidimensional design.
So let your creativity run wild and have fun with a bright tropical palette in your next needlework project! Better yet, you can use these colours to create a similar gnome design like the one we’re featuring today.
Welcome Gnome is a series of six gnomes. A new gnome will be introduced in each edition of Needle Pointers in 2023. Needle Pointers is the American Needlepoint Guild publication. You must be a member of ANG to receive the magazine.
We introduced Florentina in the January/February issue and Dotti in the March/April issue.
All six gnomes are counted canvas designs, and a different custom thread kit is provided for each gnome. They are all very colourful!
The custom thread kit for Swirly contains
- Colours #18, #37, #187, #188
- all skeins are size 5 Perle cotton
- each skein measures 20 meters/21.87 yards
More about our gnomes:
- each gnome measures approximately 4 x 2 ½ inches on 18 count mono canvas
- all the gnomes are the same shape BUT are different, one-of-a-kind, exclusive designs
- colours are different for each gnome
- each design offers a variety of stitches
Kit contents are generous, and while they may not contain sufficient threads to stitch a second gnome, there should be enough extra to stitch part of a second one!
All six would make a great addition to a children’s room, OR what about adding to your Christmas garland?
They will be a fun addition to your needlework projects. Please join us for our Welcome Gnome series. The thread kit for Swirly is available in the shop along with Florentina and Dotti.
