After a long Christmas break, the workshop for historical embroidery designs is back with a new embroidery design: The Colors of the Orient . For this pattern we dug into our yarn box and indulged in the fine blue and green tones of Soie d'Alger silk yarn. We combined the whole thing with two strong red tones. The highlights were set with gold. For this we used the beautiful gold tone 2234 of the silk yarn Soie de Paris on the one hand and metallic yarn on the other to make the pattern really shine. Before spring really sets in, a pattern with a Christmassy feel will appear again. This is perhaps also due to the fact that we are forced to work anti-cyclically. With the most beautiful summer sun in June, we prepare for the Christmas season, because embroidery takes time. We embroidered this pattern at Christmas time when our Christmas special was long overdue and we just weren't ready for spring and summer yet. In winter you want strong, warm colors. But you can never have enough Christmas motifs!
By the way, the embroidery motif is the first picture of our "Golden Edition". In this way we would like to familiarize you with our metallic yarn and the different gold tones of Soie d'Alger and Soie de Paris! Let yourself be surprised.
And here are a few more impressions because it is so beautiful:
Sometimes with a passe-partout, sometimes without. In our eyes, both are beautiful!
And now a little synopsis of our 2019 Christmas special. As you can see, sometimes two people have the same color idea. First, we show you Kim Beamish's 2019 Christmas special in shades of green and blue:
And immediately afterwards the slightly reduced version by Ton Wolswijk. Both turned out beautifully and our thanks go to the two embroiderers who gave us their photos!
