Ebony & Ivory

"EBONY & IVORY"  is a black and white treasure perfect for winter stitching!

Our very first design for 2015 reminds us of those soft, grey winter skies and dazzling white, snowy days to come!  Stitched with beautiful Dinky Dyes silk floss in shades of black and grey on Zweigart’s finest Edinborough 36 ct linen, white, “Ebony & Ivory” should appear  your favorite shops within the next few days.  


This sampler joins a series of monochrome samplers in the Samplers of Color series.  Our growing collection can be viewed here http://www.temptingtangles.com/p/samplers-of-color.html  Over time, more will follow; in fact, two more are currently being stitched. The series is designed so that there will be a matching set, all about the same size, give a stitch or two. “Ebony & Ivory” size is 200 x 200 stitches; Finished size on 36 count over 2: 11 ¼” square; Finished on 40 ct over 2=10” square. Finished on 32 ct over 2 = 12 ½”square.  It is best when worked over two threads of fabric.  There are full cross stitches, along with back and straight stitch.
