Summer Burst

I have now finished my latest Needlepoint project, which I have titled Summer Burst, as the bright colours remind me of summer.  Particularly the Tequila Sunrise from Caron Watercolours in the centre.  Not that there is much of a summer up here so far.  It was quite a challenge having to work out what patterns would fit into the spaces left as the overall composition progressed.  As the central section is a diamond, I started by squaring this off.  As I tend to favour symmetry, I decided to make the remaining halves pretty much the same.  I filled this mainly with triangles and squares in various sizes.  I’m quite pleased with the outcome, though I feel the border is too large for the rest of the piece.  I hope to do another design in this way, and next time will make the border much less intrusive.  Here is the final work in all its glory.

  1. Fantastic work, I’m really impressed with how this has developed. Gorgeous use of colour and pattern. And you have it framed too – how organised! I must take a leaf from your book there.

    So, are you feeling liberated? I really hope to see more of your unique designs.
