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.
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.
