A Tulip Study

This is A Tulip Study designed by Kathryn Drummond under her designer name as Gingerbread Girl. Kathryn has graciously given me her permission to blog stitch this piece! It is a gorgeous design that is worked on a 13 x 13 piece of 24 count white Congress cloth. It is a counted piece that will have a decorative stitch border and the stumpwork tulips rest on a bargello pattern. the pattern calls for DMC perle cotton, Rainbow Gallery Crystal Braid, Needle Necessitites floss, weeks dye Works floss, and Sampler Threads floss.
Kathryn has a website where you may see some of her other designs and read all about her. There is another photo of this piece with a full list of supplies if you go to her gallery and then click on Pot Pourri. In addition to designing beautiful needlework patterns, she has just recently decided to purchase Mrs. Twitchett's Eye. Please enjoy browsing either site if you like.
I will begin stitching this piece in the next day or two. Right now I am doing the finishing on the Needle Nook, and hope to get it finished Thursday evening.

This is beautiful - and I have a weakness for tulips. It will be a pleasure to watch yours develop. This is something I couldn't and wouldn't stitch myself, so really love watching someone adept in the art.
