Patti Mann #2

As long as I’m in a blue and white Oriental mood, I decided to stitch my second Patti Mann design. The one below I stitched earlier this year. It’s a 16″ square on 13 count canvas and was stitched with Silk and Ivory for the design and Needlepoint Inc silk for the background.

The companion design I bought is a 10″ square on 18 count canvas. As you can see, it’s done in shades of a brighter blue.

Since I want to put this in the same room as the first design, I pulled Needlepoint Inc silk threads in the same dark blue-gray colors. I tried them out on the lid for the center jar. I think they’ll work well and started to stitch. Sometimes  having a basketweave project on hand is good in the evenings when I’m too tired to deal with more complex designs.

This will be a good companion piece for the first Patti Mann design. I’m playing with stitches to use for the background and haven’t made a decision yet, so I’ll continue with the jar in the middle for now.

  1. You and Picasso! Love both pieces because they work so well together. Your rug idea is fabulous. Basketweave is so ‘zen’ – just had to go there because of the chinese theme…..
