CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
Verdant Variations is part of the color series designed by Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles. Others in this series are Scarlet letters, Ebony & Ivory, Broderie Bleue, Little Brown Jug, Purple-licious.
A play with words and color, it reads like an alphabetical order poem listing all the subtle variations of green hues, with evocative names ranging from Absinthe to Viridian, Emerald to Jade, Celadon to Verdigris and Chartreuse to Shamrock.
Creative Poppy suggestion:
Stitch with your very own range of green overdyed floss and/or use left over green threads and make your piece truly unique. Part of the fun will be deciding which color floss you will stitch for each word.
The mostly cross stitch pattern comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart. It contains full stitches, straight stitch & back stitch, eyelets and 3 French Knots. It is best if stitched over 2 threads of fabric, or on Aida. If the count is too tight, some of the detail may be too crowded. Petite seed beads can be used as a substitute for the French Knots.
