#179 - "Tulip Terrace" Sampler Pillow 
Part Three of the Flower Village Series

 Stitch this sweet little sampler full of tulips! Tulips are close to my heart. Every year, when we still lived in Amsterdam, my family would drive out of the city and through tthrough the tulip fields of Keukenhof to celebrate the return of spring! Seeing the carpets of nature’s colour must have influenced my being even then, because I simply love masses of bright colour in all areas of my life..! The third of what will be a collection of lovely little samplers focused on cottages and garden flowers, this sampler will glow with love and colour. Stitched with luscious over-dyed silks, silk flosses, Perle Cotton, and sparkling beads on cream linen, it is perfectly designed for learning! It is not too big, so you can more effectively master how to stitch the few lovely specialty stitches. Cross Stitched areas at the top and bottom depict a Delft Pot of Tulips picked from the fields surrounding the little cottage. Follow our clear and simple diagrams included in this leaflet and enjoy the journey to Tulip Terrace! To finish, instructions to create a pillow are at the back of this leaflet. All stitch and finishing instructional videos are also available in FB! –Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack: Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length.  

 some colours could have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires partial yardage. ie. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't be surprised if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
