Stoney Creek's popular Pattern of the Month continues with the November 2012 design "Take Time for Yourself."
We stitched this as a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" design by itself on 28ct clay cashel over 2 threads and framed it in a 5x5 small sunflower button frame from Stoney Creek, and also stitched all six designs of this series together and have it framed in a black 5" x 25" frame. If stitching on 14ct we like the looks of Dirty Aida. The design is embellished (optional) with a handmade center wheel button and a gold mini bee charm. In addition to standard embroidery floss (see master color list below for all six patterns) this design uses Glissen Gloss Rainbow Blending Thread 605 Brick, Weeks Dye Works 1326 Rust (DMC 898 sub) and Caron Waterlilies 139 Kelp. Caron Waterlilies 139 Kelp is used throughout the series and one skein should be suitable for stitching all six designs. Please note that the Rainbow Blending 605 Brick and Weeks Dye Works 1326 Rust are also used throughout the series.
