Needle painted Morning Glories

This project is carried out mainly in long and short stitch.

This is our second project using the needle painting technique. After realizing the peony, I chose this design because of its difference with the previous work.

Indeed the surfaces to be embroidered are much smaller and it will be a matter of well declining the range of chosen colors.

I will also guide you step by step, using many photos and I hope that by following this tutorial you will again enjoy, as for the peony, to have realized an exceptional embroidery.

As always for this technique, we will use the most classic embroidery thread, i.e. just plain stranded cotton.

Taking advantage of the very wide range of colors of the DMC collection, the most popular in Europe, here is the list of threads that I chose. This is a very intuitive first choice but can be modified according to the needs of the work. If that were the case I would not fail to mention it.

For the leaves, DMC stranded cotton 500, 501, 320, 368, 369.

For the flowers, DMC stranded cotton 823, 797, 3838, 3839, 3840, B5200 

For the buds, DMC stranded cotton 159, 160, 161.

I chose to embroider these Morning Glories on light gray linen to bring out all the shades of blue used from lightest to darkest and enhance the white.
