Grape Iris

Needlepainting: long and short stitch

Michelle Palmer / Elsa Williams design: Grape Iris

Elsa Williams's Grape Iris

Elsa Williams’s Grape Iris

This is from a vintage Elsa Williams kit.

The supplied wool is Paternayan and the fabric is 51 percent linen and 49 percent cotton. I mentioned this because one of the reasons I have spent hours on the web looking for unopened vintage Elsa Williams kits is for the wool and fabric that they packaged in these kits.

The finished design size is 12 inches by 9 inches.

The instructions showed all of the petals in long/short but I felt it was too busy and decided to do several areas of the petals in satin stitch.

Feel free to take any idea or thoughts you want from my comments and photos. But I do ask that you do not post my photos or any parts of my photos to other websites or within non-personal use documents. Thanks, Noelle site ©2014 D&N Associates, Ltd.
