Bonkers for Bargello!

It must be bargello season! At least that's the way Scarlet Thread sees it, along with ANG, which featured several bargello projects in the latest issue of Needle Pointers. We're very pleased to offer LIZART's latest designs by Liz Morrow as complete kits.

First up is Vegas Nights, a striking contemporary design in vivid shades of red with accents of black and silver. She's used scrumptious Silk & Ivory along with Rainbow Gallery and YLI metallics. I like the unpredictability of the pattern, oh so appropriately evocative of what goes on in Las Vegas.

Next is Hens & Chicks, a delightful small, very portable project to tuck into your bag. As soon as I saw this, I knew I'd have to stitch it. It reminds me of the garden in the side yard of the house I grew up in, a lovely old Victorian on the edge of a small town in northeastern Maryland. I loved the half-barrel pot of hens and chicks somebody thought was a nice accent piece. They were right! Liz has captured it beautifully.

Finally, we have White Noise, a lovely monochromatic piece. Liz has put a lot of texture into this design, using cotton, silk and wool, rayon, metallic, and angora threads in shades of white. We could easily customize this kit in the color of your choice. Just send the number and name of the Watercolours color you'd like to use as the foundation thread to, and we'll pull the rest of the threads to go with it. (Because of dye-lot variations, we'll use the Watercolours we have in inventory at the time.)
