CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
Broderie Bleue is part of the color series designed by Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles. Others in this series are Scarlet letters, Verdant Variations, Ebony & Ivory, Little Brown Jug, Purple-licious.
A play with words and color, it reads like an alphabetical order poem listing all the subtle variations of blue hues, with evocative names ranging from Azure to Ultramarine, Delft to Persian, Cornflower to Violet, Cerulian to Zaffre, not forgetting Indigo, Navy and baby Blue.
"This design contains full stitches, a few petite stitches or quarter stitches, straight stitch & back stitch. This sampler is best if stitched over 2 threads of fabric."
Creative Poppy suggestion:
Stitch with your very own range of blue overdyed floss and/or using left over blue threads and make your piece truly unique. Part of the fun will be deciding which color floss you will stitch for each word.
The pattern comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart and instructions for the specialty stitches.
