Mardi Gras is the second heart featured in the March/April 2021 issue of Needlepoint Now designed by Dragonlady Canvaswork Designs.  Cleopatra’s Heart was the first heart published in the January/February issue just in case you missed it.  The third heart will be featured in the May/June 2021 issue so stay tuned for it.

A little about Mardi Gras
The design was inspired by Jean Hilton following a class Susan attended taught by her a number of years ago.

What do you need?
You will find the pattern in the March/April issue of Needlepoint Now so make sure you pick up your copy.  You can find it online HERE.  You will also need to purchase 18 count mono canvas, colour choice is yours but remember all the stitching will cover the canvas so we opted for white.

The thread kit contents include ALL the threads required to stitch the heart with the exception of a very small amount of Kreinik braid (or metallic of your choice) likely found in your stash.  There should be sufficient threads to complete TWO Mardi Gras hearts as all the stitches use less than 5 meters/5.5 yards.  Many use less.  Perhaps double sided!!!  This design is more challenging than Cleopatra’s Heart so will appeal to advanced beginner/intermediate stitchers BUT so fun to stitch!

    These are just stunning. No pictures compare to the real thing. Especially endearing is the complimentary strand of thread included with orders. Always impressed with shipping speed. Starting the Mardi Grad heart, now. Thank you.
