Flowers of Olde by Olga

Olga (known as Olenka's Stitches on the internet) sent me a photo of her version of my complimentary design, Flowers Of Olde.

Olga stitched the design on 28-count coffee hand-dyed linen with DMC variegated threads. She wrote, "The design attracted me by the usage of long satin stitches. I was wondering what carnations would look like made in these stitches. Your instruction on how to use overdyed thread is very useful. While stitching the flowers, I tried to make the centers of the flowers brighter to make them look more natural. I enjoyed stitching your design very much and I am satisfied with the result."

Don't you love the way Olga turned this design into a pinkeep? I also love her thread colors--so bright and cheerful. Thanks, Olga, for sharing a photo of your sweet pinkeep.

Flowers of Olde
is a complimentary design. You can print it off from my website.

The On-Line Needlework Show opened today at 2pm EDT. This is a wholesale tradeshow which means only registered shops can purchase items. However, anyone can look at all the goodies. You can then ask a shop to buy something for you.
