Do you love beautiful colours and fabric? Then you will love my mood boards. Each board will feature a Coloured and patterned embroidery hoop, a pallet of DMC embroidery threads and a complimentary Kona Cotton solid.
My Valentines inspired Mood Board has a Candy Rose theme and includes a few of my favourites things. Enjoy the eye candy and follow the links below to purchase the individual items.
Here are all the individual element that make up my Valentines 'Candy Rose' inspirational mood-board.
Firstly my hand finished, vibrant red, wooden embroidery hoop frames. This Vibrant red is guaranteed to make your needle work pop. My red embroidery hoops are available in all sizes so you can perfectly frame your project.
Felicite is a rose trail design designed for Liberty Fabrics in 1933 by the designer D.S., who also created our iconic Betsy and Wiltshire prints. It is part of the Classics collection started in 1979, created to champion the most well-known and iconic designs from the Liberty archive all year around. This colour way perfectly compliments this vibrant candy red colour pallet.
DMC Stranded Cotton is made in France and are my favourite Embroidery Threads. They are both strong and have a beautiful sheen. The 6 easily divisible strands allow you to vary the weight of your stitches allowing a great versatility.
The painter in me loves the fact that there are over 500 colours allowing me to paint with threads.
In this inspiration Board I have limited myself to four complimentary colours.
This pallet contains the following colour threads:
151 - Pink
3706 - Melon - Medium
3705 - Melon - Dark
666 - Red - Bright
Kona Colour, Cotton Solids:
Kona cotton is a range of cotton made by Robert Koferman. With over 365 glorious colours in the range there is a colour for every occasion ( or mood-board ) Because there are so many colours to choose from they are perfect for embroidering on and quilt making.
To compliment this collection I selected Number 110 - Peony.
