Inspirations Calendar | September Project
28th August 2020
Spring! At last! Yes, we do acknowledge that for much of the world, September heralds the start of autumn and the cooler weather, but after a winter in Australia where we’ve literally experienced Antarctic weather fronts in some regions, we hope you’ll allow us just a little celebration.
Whatever September means for you, we’re confident that this month’s calendar project will inspire you. Versailles Chatelaine by Susan O’Connor is an exquisite set of needlework tools adorned with delicate bullion roses and a subtle colour palette which would not be out of place on the walls of a French chateau.
The luxuriousness of this project is emphasised by the use of silk threads and an ivory silk ground fabric, highlighted with delicate floral sprays, worked in shades of pink, blue and soft violet. The project comprises a pinwheel, scissor fob, scissor sheath and needlebook finished off with an elegant monogram to truly personalise your work.
Embrace the change in season and spoil yourself with the Versailles Chatelaine. Originally published exclusively in A Passion for Needlework | Factoria VII, the project is now available to download as a digital pattern.
