First design in a new series of rich and “splendid” patterns. I was inspired by antique silk brocade fabrics – the richness of color, the use of metallic threads, interwoven with the silks, the dimension of different weaving techniques – all this I tried to capture for this first one. I plan on having two designs for each color – one dark, one lighter.
There will come more, like green and purple and ….. we will see.
Here you can feed your inner queen with a glorious use of hand-dyed threads and metallics, diverse beads, and Swarovski crystals. The Special Stitches which are used besides the normal cross stitch give a nice texture and showcase wonderfully the flow of color of the variegated threads.
The mere design size is 119 x 183 stitches.
