Counted Needlepoint is a joy to stitch.
Purchase one of my chart packs today and spend hours enjoying the delight of creating your own piece of counted needlepoint.
If you would like to change and alter colours of threads as you stitch, please do so. Most of my designs can be adapted to use some threads and beads from your ‘stash’.
Starting with a plain piece of canvas, classical needlepoint stitches, a ‘finger itching’ bundle of threads it is time to start stitching.
Combining all of these factors bring great rewards to those who stitch the designs and those who look at and love the finished piece. A piece of counted needlepoint is an ideal present for someone special in your life.
About the Designs
All my designs are stitched on 18 count needlepoint canvas. In Australia it has been difficult to purchase coloured 18# canvas, so I did a background wash of colour onto white canvas. Please choose a canvas colour that you enjoy stitching on.
I work with a range of needlepoint threads including stranded cotton/floss, perle cotton, fine wool, silk ribbon and threads. These threads may be a flat colour, or over-dyed, or hand dyed.
Beads and or metalic threads are also added bringing each completed needlepoint piece to life with sparkle and glitz.
Flowers and gardens are the main theme of my counted needlepoint designs.
