It's a 10" by 10" design, done on 18 ct. brown canvas, and features one of my favorite variegated threads, Watercolours 047, "Camouflage." I've chosen a rich palette of dark reds and golds that evoke the feel of an old-fashioned valentine. Other threads include a handful of #5 pearl cottons, a handful of metallics, and even one Very Velvet thread for the edges of each ribbon. (You can, of course, select another color palette; the pattern tells you what threads you need to get if you want to create a different colorway.)
The four different ribbon patterns are built up with a combination of stitches. Here's a closeup of two of the ribbons:
And of course, in the center is the "Victorian Bouquet" that gives this piece its name:
In any event, if you're in the mood to stitch some really rich overlapping ribbons, please visit my website for more information on ordering this new VICTORIAN BOUQUET design.
