CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
With a series of exquisite and very unique coffee-pots, including an antique brass one from Turkey, a Wedgewood china one from England and an traditional enamel one from France, this is Coffee Compendium.
It is really a remarkable piece and one of the highlights of the beautiful collection of Seasonal Tea & Coffee cross stitch patterns designed by Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles. Match it with its companion design Tempting Teas (see below) and you will have a perfect pair, ideal for decorating a parlour or any quiet place in your house where you sit down for a nice cup of coffee.
The list of cross stitched names of coffee brews reads like a poem, going from Affogato to Zebra Mocha and including some lovely exotic brews such as 33-52, Cafe Medici, Copi Susu, Lilly Lou, Mary Turner Coffee, Mazagran, Grange Bourbon, Pingo, Red Eye, just to mention a few.
The elegant coffee pots stand out among all the coffee names, seemingly rivalizing in charm and beauty.
The piece was cross stitched using 9 colors of overdyed threads from the Classic Colorworks* range.
*Classic Colorworks is the new name for the range of Crescent Color embroidery floss.
This cross stitch pattern comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart. It includes helpful tips on how to use overdyed threads and full instructions describing special stitches.
