    November 2014

    This project will unfold over the next 12 months. The shell design is inspired by a traditional Sashiko pattern. The shells will be filled with designs inspired by blackwork, open work and lacey backgrounds. A sampler to try different patterns in tiny bits. You can use your own canvas and stitch the outline from January 2014 Stitchguide. Here is the order of the shells.

    Sashiko Sampler an original Needlepoint project from Blue Dogwood Designs

    November - Monogram corners and border.

    You can start this project with this instruction and monthly

    stitchguide free to download.

    I am using Zweigart Vintage Blue 18 count canvas, which

    has a washed overdye look. Some of the canvas will show as the design continues.

    Finished size is 8.25 in x 7.5 in on 18 count.

    Fibers are from Valdani - they have 6 ply silk and 3 ply

    cotton, sold in small balls. Check your local needlepoint store.

    Shell #24

    Alphabet is 5 high. Most are 4 wide but a couple are 5 wide

    Print out this page and use the blank box to sketch out your

    letters in pencil. Top of first letter is 2 threads below shell

    outline.

    Stitch the monogram first. O526 6 ply silk - use 2 ply

    Note - the date below is 6 threads high.

    Print this page out and practice your letters here with pencil.

    Step 1: Red stitches are a

    simple cross. Use 2 ply of the

    M42 cotton.

    This makes a simple cross stitch

    over one thread.

    Shell #25

    THE DATE IS 6 THREADS HIGH Monogram was 5 high.

    Step 2: use 3 ply of

    O562

    Tent stitches every other

    that are offset. Work

    this vertically from the

    top down in a vertical

    column - start on the

    long outside edge.

    Compensate around your

    simple cross initials.

    The green is 3 ply of O562 cotton.

    Red stitches are 2 ply of

    M42 cotton for this simple

    cross over 1 thread. You can

    see the stitched sample that

    there is a light section of the

    thread on ours. If you like,

    you can cut a section of

    your thread that is more

    evenly colored.

    Border Best, My best friends are stitchers, Kay @ Blue Dogwood Designs Questions? Email me at [email protected]

    See the diagram of the corner and the direction of the stitches. There is a cross stitch in the corner.

    Look closely - there is one thread that separates shell border and this outside outline. It will be most important at top right corner where the pattern goes to the edge. See on the bottom, it does not bump right up to the bottom of the shell arcs. Start with 5 ply V16 at the Start Here spot. Think of that start spot as "9 o'clock" and work down, across and up to the "3 o'clock" - stitch the purple line border. Then take 5 ply of O526 silk at "9 o'clock" and work up, across and down to the "3 o'clock" top portion

    to stitch the green line border.

    See the diagram of the corner and the direction of the stitches.

    ***Remember to watch that border spacing leaving 1 thread...
