I’ve been working on new “Painted Stitches” canvases for the June TNNA Show. Spending all that time with decorative needlepoint stitches has made me want to try some of the stitches on a big piece. What’s bigger or better than a big shift! Just what I need to feel Spring Fever. I picked my PW12 Garden Large Shift 14” x 17” #14 mesh. I’m going to start with the white and pink background stripes. I want each colored stripe to be similar but a little different and easy to compensate. I picked what I call “sister stitches” Mosaic Stripe Stitch for the white stripes and Diagonal Mosaic Stitch for the pink stripes. I’m going to stitch with Vineyard Silk #C-109 Bright White and Vineyard Silk #C-173 Veil. I’ll keep you posted!!!
