I have designed the Light Lines runner, as a way of exploring DMC’s neon thread. My opion is that an embroidery usualy benefits from surprising details, and I have used DMC neon for that purpose. Also I have wanted to create special patterns dedicated to this particular type of thread.
The pattern is sewn with 50 stiches between. The pattern can easily be modified in width/lenght depending on the wanted size of the runner.

An oval-shaped pattern to match the shapes of vases and ceramics. The pattern reminds me of the tracks of a model railway.

This pattern contains a copper tree, and a backstitched turquoise forest (feel free to use the turquoise backstitches or the copper tree on their own).
