Through the Arbor ~ #2262 a new Threads in Bloom design. Instead of Through the Looking Glass or the Rabbit Hole we are going Through the Arbor for a glimpse of the Mad Hatter’s magic world. Skipping down the cobblestone path we first encounter a charmed hookah and various roses, moss and hydrangea along with some magic mushrooms, wisteria and a braided flower draping from the arbor overhead. Do I spy a rabbit with a carrot? Is that the Mad Hatter’s hat blowing by? Is that a crystal butterfly? Continue along the path for hours of delightful stitching. Stitches included stem, couching, French knot, alternating satin stitch leaves, bullion, cast-on, straight stitch, seed stitch, Hungarian braid and something new—the Un-Retwist stitch.
Included in the design package: fabric with printed design, cover photo, instructions (many stitch instructions will be found in Art of Dimensional Embroidery, by Maria Freitas), Gentle Arts for the carrot, Swarovski Crystal Butterfly and silk ribbon. Design Area: 5″ x 7″ Fabric Size: 10″ x 12″
