I may have mentioned before that Blue is my favourite colour – I wear it, I’m most comfortable stitching in blues, I make blue quilts, and there are many blues to be found in my garden. In fact, it is a bit of a joke amongst some of my friends who are astounded if I appear in another colour.
This latest piece for the Intermediate Certificate which was to be an exercise in repeating patterns, is also another attempt to steer clear of the beautiful blues that I love – so it is Red and four shades of Purple! When made up, it will be a needlecase – one which I feel will be difficult to lose because it is so loud and lurid! It will fold down the centre line, and have another row of long legged cross stitch around the edge. I will post a photo again when it is completed.
