With autumn in the air, we bring you a new tapestry to snuggle up with on the sofa. With its greys, golds and pumpkin tones, Grey Hearts captures the colours of the season.
Measuring 10.5″ x 10.5″ (approx, 27cm x 27cm) Grey Hearts is a lovely design to stitch and use as the centre of a cushion panel or bag. Make it for yourself or stitch it as a gift.
We made our own Grey Hearts into a cushion with grey woolly border and backing and contrast piping in yellow cotton.
TOP TIP A Grey Hearts tapestry would be a wonderful wedding or anniversary gift. With so many weddings being cancelled or postponed this year and dates constantly changing, a patchwork of hearts says it all and removes any anxiety about stitching in a wedding date which may need to be altered a few months later.
The first batches of kits have already left our workshop. The wool colours look lovely!
The colours in Grey Hearts will work really well alongside Ba-Ba-Bloom and the other tapestries in the Bloom series. If you’ve stitched Ba-Ba-Bloom, Bloom-Pah-Pah, Ba-Ba-Birds or Ditsy Daisies you may well have accumulated a big bag of left over wool with grey shades, which leads us to the next subject…
Buying the Grey Hearts canvas on its own If you use our new code nowoolthankyou at the checkout, the full price of the Grey Hearts kit will be automatically halved. We’ll then send you the colour printed canvas and reference chart, but not the wool.
Call us on 01460 281111 if you’d rather order your kit or canvas only over the phone.
Perhaps you’ve finished a tapestry and need to discuss making up before our October Christmas deadline?
The October 20th deadline date (for tapestries returning to a UK address) is sneaking up on us and as 2020 has been an exceptionally busy one for stitching, we urge you not to leave it too late before sending in your own lockdown creations. We have no way of knowing how many tapestries will be heading our way over the coming weeks, but it will be quite a few!
If you aren’t sure about fabric for your tapestry, here’s a link to our blog where we show the colours in our cotton, wool mix and velvet ranges. We also show albums of finished tapestries on our Facebook page so do take a look there for more inspiration.
Best wishes as always, and happy stitching.
PS Remember to hold your completed canvases up to the light before you send them in. It’s so easy to miss a few stitches…we all do it!« Previous Post Next Post »
