Scarlet Glory is perfect if you are familiar with basic crewel work and want to further develop your skills and try a few different stitches.
Traditional crewel work is a feast of exotic flowers and fanciful foliage – which I really love.
Crewel embroidery was often used to decorate large bed hangings with extravagant floral patterns. I designed Scarlet Glory to look as if it is perhaps a fragment of a much larger piece. The colour palette of burnt orange, terra cotta and pinks gives it a warm, contemporary appearance.
The embroidery is worked onto Italian linen and the rich blooms and fancy leaves are created using 25 different embroidery stitches and stitch combinations.
The detailed instructions and diagrams will help guide you step by step through the project however, you might find it helpful to have a stitch directory at hand – I always do.
The size of the Scarlet Glory panel makes it perfect for a decorative pillow or work bag, but it looks equally pretty framed.
I hope you will get as much pleasure embroidering your Meadow Bloom as I did.
Happy Stitching, Anna
