ONL 175 – The Splendids – Blue No 2

Onl 175 white


Another 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 design for each color – one dark, one lighter.

This is the light blue – it pops on a black fabric but can as well so pastel and soft on any light background….

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.

  1. Hi Marina
    I’m thinking of creating a tile pattern with these. How many do you think you’ll create?

    I have two suggestions for your website:
    1. a category in your shop list for new designs, maybe you could keep a design there for a few months
    2. In your account, it would be great if there is some indication of what design(s) was bought. If you publish embellishments or corrections to a pattern, I have to go hunting through my list by opening each one. It would be much easier if you just put a thumbnail or a short description of one of the items next to the entry in the list.

    Thanks for your wonderful designs!
