Lose your heart but not your scissors with this Hearts of Gold Scissors Case!
I’m a big fan of Whimsy & grace’s stitcher’s accessories and I’ve created Needlepoint Stitch Guides for many of them, But this one is the one I like best. I started stitching it Monday and in three days (about six hours of stitching), I’m almost done with the front.
This design is really witty. It’s called Hearts of Gold and, as you can see, it has golden hearts in many of the patches. There is the large solid heart near the bottom, the over all interlocking heart design to the right, and the tile-like pattern of four hearts near the top center. One the back there are several more hearts.
Another great aspect of this design is the way it combines many different metallic threads into a sublte color palette. Throughout, it uses five different gold threads, and four silver. The non-metallic shades of cream and white create a lovely backdrop. It features threads from Kreinik and Rainbow Gallery.
The front has these regular diamonds while the back has elongated diamonds which have a more contemporary look. There is a matching needle case as well.
The Stitch Guide is available now from your local needlepoint shop. If you’re introgued by Whimsy & grace’s stitcher’s accessories ask your shop about booking a mini-trunk show of them. The show consists of the canvases (and stitch guides) available and gives you a chance to pick your favorite. If you’re like me, it will be an extremely difficult choice!
