1. Stitch all the black lines in black pearl cotton in Tent Stitch (Continental
2. Using Watercolour-Fiesta, Medici 8168, and Kreinik metallic 027, stitch
as diagramed. I do not have a name for this stitch. It came from Ginny
Morrowís Nova book and I will use it throught this guide with direction
changes. I did the byzantine (stairstep) rows first going diagonally from
top right to bottom left. Then stitch the alternating mosaic stitches in
metallic and wool.
3. This time the stitch is done vertically with marigold Watercolour, #021
Kreinik metallic, and 8166 Medici. Do as illustrated starting with the
Watercolour and filling in with the metallic and wool.
4. This is a repeat of #1 except you will change the direction of the stitch
to top left to bottom drjight. Use Burnt Toast Watercolour, #013 Kreinik
metallic, and #8164 Medici.
5. Repeat #4 but use Orange Blossom Watercolour, #212 Kreinik metallic
and #8111 Medici.
6. Stitch direction is like #1. Use Black Cherry Watercolour, #080HL Garnet
metallic and Splendor Silk S937 Deep Violet. Splendor comes in a strand
composed of three 4ply strands twisted together.
Use one 4ply strand. I have discovered that this wonderful silk does not
need to be separated (stripped) prior to use if you use a laying tool as
7. Use same direction as #3 with Mocha Rose Watercolour, #042 Confetti
Fuchsia metallic, and S936 Splendor.
8. Repeat stitch direction of #4 & 5 using Clove Watercolours, #271
Plum metallic, and S935 Splendor.
9. Same stitch direction as #8 using Morning Mist Watercoloudr, #193 Pale
Mauve metallic and S934 Splendor.
10, 11, 12, & 13. Four different shades of a teal floss are used in
a vertical long stitch for the stripe. Each uses 3 plies. Strip the floss
(or separate the individual plies and put back together again). As you
stitch, lay the threads with a laying tool to make sure the threads lay
side by side rather than being twisted around one another. For #10, use
DMC floss # 597, #11 - #3810, #12 - 3809, /#13 - 3808. Please note that
the stripe is in two separate places.
14, 15, 16, & 17. Using four colors of floss and 5 plies, stitch in
padded vertical long stitches. This is where I learned to do padding by
just doing the same stitch twice. In other words, I stitched the entire
area and then I simply stitched it again! I recommend doing this for this
area as the traditional way of laying in horizontal stitches for padding
wonít work here.
Background: Using three shades of Elegance, a twisted silk, do Random Scotch.
Use the lightest color on the left with the darkest to the right. This
is a very effective background but scarey to do. All I can say is just
experiment! It will work! Ramdom Scotch is combining different sizes of
Scotch stitches and filling in around them with cashmeir or mosaic stitches.
Iíve illustrated several sizes of these stitches to give you an
