Happy Hearts Part 2

By:

In the second part of the Happy Hearts needlepoint project from Nuts About Needlepoint you'll learn several more ways to create decorative hearts. Follow the patterns and you'll be able to finish your special needlepoint project.

Happy Hearts Part 2

Materials:

  • Watercolours
  • Glow in the Dark Kreinik
  • Sparkle Rays (citrus color scheme)


Instructions:

This heart uses Watercolours, glow in the dark Kreinik, and Sparkle Rays for a very citrus color scheme. In scanning, the Sparkle Rays bleached out completely. The pattern has three rows Tent Stitch in square and rectangular blocks.
 

The background is stitched in T Stitch using Kreinik #4. This thread is very fine, so it leaves a hint of color and a sparkle.

This heart uses another pattern of square blocks, this time grouped in sets of four. The square blocks are outlined in dark violet Very Velvet and the background is an extremely pale blue, all in Tent Stitch.

The squares are filled with Diagonal Mosaic, with the upper left and lower right using a blue-green Gloriana (deep blues sea). The upper right and lower left use a light blue Elegance.

The lower left heart is stitched in linenfold, a stitch which uses a combination of straight (wider stripes) and diagonal (narrow stitches). I used a dark red-violet Pebbly Perle for the narrow stripes and alternated Neon Rays and Kreinik ribbon for the wide stripes.

The background is Hungarian, a stitch I often forget about and one which should be used more often. It’s stitched using Crescent Colours floss is Purple Toile, a very pale violet.

The last heart is stitched in Trianglepoint using Dinky Dyes silk and Flair I dyed myself. This background is also T Stitch but made with Petite Very Velvet, making a more solid background.
