Featuring: In a Purple Passion
Purple is such a wonderful color. Symbol of royalty, faith, wisdom and, of course, passion, no one can fail to be inspired by its use. The love of the color purple is interpreted here in Passion Watercolours using the double-fan-doubled stitch, a sign of controlled but radiant warmth. Essentially a stitch sampler, this piece includes a variety of composite and pattern stitches. Work the same piece in an elegant white and gold combination, worked on ecru canvas, Snow White Watercolours is accented by shades of gold metallic and soft ecru overdyed pearl.
Double Fan Doubled? Jessica? Walneto? Do these stitches give you heartburn? You CAN do them!

Learn not only how to do the Amadeus, Double Fan and Double Fan Doubled, Eight Point Star Jessica, Crescent, Mistake Stitch, Plaited Rays, Sprats Head, Sheaf Stitch, Waffle and Walneto and Chilly Hollow stitches, but move on to dozens of carefully charted (and pictured!) variations of each!
