So Mary at Needle ‘n’ Thread is planning a stitchalong of the Royal Persian Blossom from Talliaferro Designs. Nobody has started stitching yet, but she has a discussion area for the stitchalong where people are discussing fabric, thread, and color choices (at some shops you can simultaneously order the pattern and the wool). I’m going to jump in too! I’m just brainstorming at the moment though – no stitching for me yet either!
I love the blue/gold/brown color scheme, so I want to keep that. Mine will be in embroidery floss instead of wool, though. I like the shininess, and there will be some different options for adapting the pattern to a new look.
I also really want to learn more about Indian embroidery. I have several good books about it, and there’s many wonderful resources from Indian embroidery bloggers as well. So I’m thinking of trying to do the Royal Persian Blossom interpreted through Indian embroidery. My first idea is to replace those blue circles running across the top with shisha mirrors. I would absolutely love it if y’all would jump in with more ideas! Everybody think Indian embroidery!!! What should I do?
