When my order of Colour Streams variegated threads arrived, I absolutely needed to stitch something with them – and that’s how this design came to be!
Using Colour Streams’ Marrakesh I started this design with pretty swirls and then framed them with Celtic knotwork. I love knotwork, including it in my designs feels like an expression of my Scottish ancestry.
The framing is simple, but striking. I covered cardboard with fabric and attached the stitched piece with double-sided tape. The design would also make a lovely card, or a pretty pillow.
If you’d like to stitch Knotwork Swirls, it’s in my Etsy Shop.
I’ve more threads from that order that are calling me…
