Directly from Italy, we love this collection of monochromatic designs... jewelry, seasonal, and lovely hearts from Livia and Paola Rovaris. All presented in chart format, although everything is stitched in red -- you KNOW you can change any colors you wish!!!
More Love Hearts What a stunning pair of designs by Rovaris of Italy! A new trio of hearts -- each of these is presented in chart format -- and offer simple elegance! All are stitched in DMC 815 red... but you could choose any solid or hand-dyed cotton or silk you wish.
On 32ct, they finish approx 9 x 9, give or take a few stitches. One of the shop gals does these over one (a little over 4 x 4 on 40ct)... and they would be lovely as needlework mounted next to a wedding invitation in a double-opening presentation. Or... just the way they are!
By Rovaris, this is a cool piece! Halloween is spelled out -- but each letter is a stylized little picture! Offered as the chart, the stitch count is 511 x 84 -- so you'll need to consider how you big you want your final piece to be. Just the witch hat measures approx 50 x 70 stitches -- so this isn't particularly small.
You can see charms scattered about... get into your stash and find your favorite scary buttons and charms to add -- this is a classy piece! Charted for DMC #815 -- or anything YOU want!
Stitched Initial Necklaces
These are lovely hand-made necklaces coming all the way from Italy! Each one features a square 1-1/2 inch frame finding that is the base for your needlework. The kit comes with a complete alphabet, so choose your letter and stitch it on the provided 36ct Natural Linen in DMC #815 floss. (or color of your choice, keeping in mind that the charm decor includes a burgundy red crystal.) You'll want to back the stitching with a bit of red felt or something, but then lace it onto the metal finding.
Next, attach all the pretty silvery charms to the bottom of the frame! You have a lovely key, little miniature wooden spool (that is wrapped with some of your stitching floss), the pretty coin medallion that is holding the pre-made teeny burgundy red tassel, a fillagree-topped burgundy red crystal bead, and finally a pretty heart. They are all heavy and feel of very good quality! Finally, lace the fabric cord through the top, add the topping bead and tie! Really cute... I must tell you, however, that there are basicallyno assembly instructions in the kit! You're on your own -- but if you print our pic and go by the kit's cover pic, you'll be FINE! These are really cute!
What a stunning pair of designs by Rovaris of Italy! Offered in chart format, each heart is simply Cross Stitch in #815 DMC floss. Stitch counts are almost identical -- the stacked trio design is 155 x 144, while the 4 smaller cascading piece is 145 x 134. They don't have names, and I am sure you could work them on most any count -- and choose most any pretty hand-dyed thread you wish. I just think they are sophisticated and very unique for our marketplace, so I delighted in buying them!!!
