Completed project size is 8.25 in x 7.5 in on 18 ct canvas. The shells are filled with designs inspired by blackwork, open work and lacy backgrounds.
Valdani Threads were the highlight of this project. We used 6 ply silk and 3 ply cotton sold in balls. The stitchguide includes instructions to draw the shell design but we used a Vintage Blue Zweigart 18 count canvas that adds to the overall openwork color scheme.
2017 update on threads from Valdani. The original stitchguides included 15 balls and Valdani discontinued some of the silk threads. Purchase the 11 balls and follow the modified stitchguide for January.
