Description

Trellises in our garden are often totally covered with fruit, vegetables or flowers.  The ease of working lattice/trellising on Needlepoint was the inspiration for this design. Merrilyn challenged herself to create a Trellis effect without stitching a traditional Trellis stitch, and often stitching over stitches, making the Trellises look hidden.In embroidery lattice/ trellising is used to form a background for other stitches to be added to and can be very challenging to get the long lattice stitches with even spacing, but on canvas it is a ‘dream’. In Hidden Trellises you will stitch the trellising background, not covering it with  flowers and fruit, but instead incorporating the flowers in-between the trellis, allowing the trellis to ‘shine’.

Hot pinks and bright yellows are used as contrasting colors in the main eight oblong beds that have the Hidden Trellises.  Rich greens are intertwined into the design with Gumnut Yarns Poppies and rich textured Rainbow Gallery Very Velvet.  French knots in the inner garden beds represent our gardens over flowing in full summer bloom.  The subtle use of metallic threads adds a soft glint to the design. Delicate Gumnut Yarns: Poppies (50% silk and wool) and the rich texture of Very Velvet are used to form traditional Box Hedges around the Garden Beds. A range of Rainbow Gallery threads bring life to the flowers that are blooming.

This class includes instructions for completing the design piece which can be finished however the student prefers. No finishing instructions are included in this class.
