Vero Beach ribbon pillow

This is a fun canvas designed by Rosalie Peters and sold by Kate Schofield.  It's on 13mesh canvas and provides a nice variety of things to stitch including signal flags that spell Vero.  The Needle Nicely shop model is stitched with perle 3.  The blank squares were filled with pale yellow mosaic stitches.  The outside border was stitched in the same yellow in the woven trellis variation.  This model was stitched by several Needle Nicely employees and some of them are now less than fond of the woven trellis variation.  They say it is easy to get "off count", but also agree that the finished product is worth the pain. 

We could have added other stitches, but I wanted the design elements to be the real center of attention.

  1. It might be difficult to stitch, but the woven trellis variation sure looks great!
