New Stitch Monday With a Twist – Week 12 – It’s a Wrap!
My journey with the Raymond Crawford “NEEDLEPOINT’ canvas has come to an end. I decided not to add any new stitches in the spaces between the letters with the focus being on the stitches used for them. I did the T-Stitch using Petite Silk Lame Braid numbers SP11, SP26, SP33, SP126 & SP141. On my canvas the white/beige areas looked creamier so that is why I used SP33. If your canvas looks whiter you may choose to use the white Petite Silk Lame Braid.
What I learned working on this canvas is that some stitches work better is small areas while others work best in larger areas. I tried to use the threads that best matched the painted canvas. It’s fun to experiment with stitches by using different colored, over-dyed & metallic threads. There are no needlepoint police. Play around with your stitches till you get the effect you are looking for.
I hope you will be able to use some of the stitches I included on this canvas. Let’s see what I can find for next week’s New Stitch Monday.
Happy Stitching – Stephanie
