Remember the Ladies Milkpaints
New silk kits by Kreinik have arrived this week... and each one is so pretty!!! Offered in clear, plastic boxes... each design is commissioned by an industry designer, features the color pic of the model, and complete skeins of necessary Milkpaint silks! Pinwheel Quilt (4 x 4) is actually shaded with the different silks included -- it's not done in overdyeds! Old Fashioned Flowers (4-1/2 x 3) features soft garden colors and a medley of stitches.
Ohio Star and Irish Chain Two goregous miniature quilts are stitched over one thread on 32ct Belfast Linen using soft Milkpaint silks! The black cat sillouette adds some contrast... but I bet if you're not a cat person... you could re-create the rest of the quilt instead. Finishing a mere 3 x 3 for the Ohio, and 2 x 3 for the Irish, the shading is so soft, you'd think these were stitched with hand-dyed silks! Just beautiful miniature works of art, Kreinik is offering these as the chart with the silks. (There is not enough silk included for these to be stitched over two threads, sorry.) You add the bit of linen.
The third totally amazing silk quilt by Kreinik is here!!! Joining Ohio Star and Irish Chain, this quilt is a miniature work of art! Offered as the chart with 9 skeins of subtle silks, as part of the Remember the Ladies Series, this is stitched over one thread -- in luscious lavender and moss green silks -- and finishes approx 3-1/2 x 4-1/2 on 28ct linen. These are beautiful displayed in a frame on an easel... perched in a showy spot! "So detailed, so elegant... it's very hard to pass by...! We brought home (from Market) a few other new Remember the Ladies kits... check them out on the Kreinik page!
Dogs Stitched in Silk!
If you're a dog lover, and have good eyes, or a good magnifying lamp... then these kits are for you! Beautiful representations of dogs, these are stitched in silk thread over one thread of 40ct silk gauze! Each dog's face measures approx an inch when finished... so your miniature is a masterpiece!!! The complete kits contain the gauze, silks and chart. There are three available right now, with a Yorkie coming in a few weeks. (I've added it to the dropdown boxes, in case you want to reserve one!)
