Another Finish

July 18th, 2016 · No Comments · Needlepoint


Finished this Saturday night-I live a wild and crazy life.

This is a Designs by Heidi custom piece.  She doesn’t have a web page or even as near as I can tell a Facebook page but she does have photos posted to Flickr.  (Will someone let me know if that link doesn’t work?  I have a Flickr account and I follow Heidi there, so I’m not sure if this will work for the general public.)  If you like it, and want one with your own children’s name, drop me a note and I can send her your email.

I used #12 Kreinik braid for the gold #002HL , Vineyard Silk Classic in #C-110 Natural and Silk Lame Braid SL-28 for the Burgandy.  Used a whole card of the SLB, almost a whole spook of the braid and 2/3 a skien of the VSC.

Random thoughts about this piece.

Looks very elegant.  I think it will look good made into an ornament.

Not sure I shouldn’t use a #8 braid.  Need to figure out whether that will give the coverage it needs.  #12 looks a little thick.

Thinking this might look good done in Mosaic Stitch though the compensating might make me a little crazy and cause it to look clunky.

Next time I think I’m going to use Pepper Pot Silk for the natural.  Not anything wrong with the VSC but really loving the Pepper Pot Silk right now!
