Anyway, I think it's certainly time to offer this popular class again... so if you missed it the first time around, now's your chance to sign up! It's a large piece - 11.5" x 11.5" on a 16" x 16" piece of 18 ct. eggshell canvas, stitched with a handful of gorgeous silk threads. And to add extra spice to the color choices, I've taken out the two palest, spring colorways and added two bold, fall colorways - PURPLE and GREEN. Here are the color choices for the October 2016 class stitcher:
Isn't that a yummy selection of colors to choose from? And in case you're interested, the palettes are build around these variegated silk threads:
TEAL = Waterlilies 121 - "evergreen"
BLUE = Waterlilies 229 - "oasis"
RED = Waterlilies 045 - "flame"
PURPLE = Waterlilies 231 - "ethiopia"
GREEN = Waterlilies 245 - "savannah"
And all of the colorways include matching Ribbon Floss and Kreinik 1/16th Ribbon threads as well.
The nice thing about this project is that the stitches are NOT DIFFICULT, as you can tell from this detail photo:
Indeed, once you have the sections/borders counted out, filling in the boxes is very relaxing and quite a non-stressful project. A good project for working on over time, picking it up between other more demanding pieces. I think of this piece as part geometric, part sampler....but totally fun to work up!
