Tropical Garden Sampler Chart & Accessory Pack

TWELFTH IN THE "VICTORIAN GARDEN" SERIES

This lush tropical garden celebrates those relaxed moments under the shade of tall palm trees. Stitched using gorgeous silk flosses and overdyed silk on a tropical green linen, this warm sunny garden sampler is a luscious addition to the Victorian Garden series. As you walk into the flower garden at the bottom of the sampler, you’ll find our gardeners resting in the shade, enjoying the fruits of their labour in their beautiful garden. They are cooling off with some tropical fruity drink and watching the birds and enjoying the ocean breezes. Then a bed of silk ribbon yellow hibiscus flowers lead to a birdbath where some multi coloured tropical birds cool off, and a parrot and flamingo look on beside the azure sea. Walking past the tropical fish pond, you see a beautiful waterfall and sailboat sailing past their sandy beach by the ocean.

This Learning Sampler is perfect for the beginning through intermediate specialty stitcher. You will practice some lovely specialty stitches such as Lazy Daisies, Cross Stitches, Backstitches, Satin Stitches, Plait Stitch, Modified Arrowhead, Feather Stitches, French Knots, Diamond Eyelets, Spring Stitches and Pulled Pin stitches. Take some time to smell the salty sea air, and stitch your way through this serene and delightful tropical garden as you dream of your holiday paradise! - Thea

Sorting Threads in your Accessory Pack

Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the light bulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
