COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY GRACEWOOD STITCHES
Kathy Bungard designer of Gracewood Stitches describes the pattern in her own words:
Kaleidescopes and their ever changing patterns and colors have always held a great deal of charm for me. The name was coined in 1817 by Scottish inventor Sir David Brewster.. "kaleidoscope" is derived from the Ancient Greek (kalos), "beautiful",(eidos), "shape" and (skopeō), "examine", hence "observation of beautiful forms."
Beautiful forms they are indeed and it has been my wish to create patterns that give the feel of a kaleidescope frozen in all its lovely mirrored images.
Creative Poppy says:
Sapphire, Amethyst and Topaz combine in mirror effects to create an amazing pattern. The motif will look especially precious if, like the designer, you stitch your work on a fine count fabric. It will measure a couple of inches wide and will look great in a deep frame box. You can use our calclator below to make a decision on your fabric count, depending on the desired size of your finished piece.
