This is my interpretation of India by India Grace designs. The design called for perle #5 and #8 but i chose to use #8 and #12 as I thought the other would be too bulky for my liking. I used perle #8 in House of Embroidery 86 Coral, using the darker shade for the satin star and tulips and the medium shade for the kloiser blocks and little satin flower. I used perle #12, Anchor 06 for the infills and dmc 927 for the eyelets in the centre of the satin flowers. I also added these beads which (though disappointinly do not show up correct here) are exactly the same shade of peach. They are Polstitches hand dyed beads and were a RAK from Terri (thanks Terri) a little while ago. If you want to see what the original design looked like then click here. I hope Vicki Mansfield (the designer) approves of my interpretation.
Right off to put my bits and bobs away and get The Quiltmaker ready for tomorrow. Then its a hot bath. We had a brilliant weekend with our friends in Yorkshire but after a busy weekend which included excercising three lively boxer dogs up on the fens between Holmfirth and Huddersfield this morning I am absolutely wacked tonight.
Sophie, Cali and Amber trying not to show how excited they feel about going out in the car lol.
