The Needle's Prayse
These charts will be available from NeedleWork Press,
the new publisher for charts from The Needle's Prayse, in April 2015.
Darlene's piece was stitched on Newcastle Cream (40 count). On this linen you'll need Perle Cotton #12 and Tatting Cotton. The Tatting Cotton does not come in a great deal of colors so if you choose to do it in another color you can use Soie 100/3 as a substitute. In 2017 Zweigart introduced a new color of Newcastle - Winter Moon, which we like even better than Cream. It's a little closer to the color of the Ecru threads.

If you choose to stitch your sampler on another count you will need to change the size of the threads as well as the quantities required. Other thread options include solid silk perles (e.g. Soie Perlee, Soie Gobelins, Silk Bella) or tone-on-tone silk perles (e.g. Gloriana Petite Princess Perle and Dinky Dyes Silk Perle). If you choose to stitch with a hand-dyed thread, tone-on-tone works best so your thread color change doesn't fight with the complexity of the design. Let your imagination (and thread availability) be your guide.

You can stitch this on many hand-dyed linens, but keep the mottling to a minimum since this is a very detailed design.
