On January 14, 2024, HM The Queen steps down as Queen of Denmark and entrusts the throne to HRH The Crown Prince.
This bookmark is made with whole cross stitches and backstitches on linen (8 threads/cm). It is stitched with flora-cotton No. 321, with 2 threads in the needle. Finished dimensions are approx. 25 x 7 cm.
Runner stitched using cross- and back-stitches on linen, 10 threads/cm. Size approx. 28 x 102 cm.
The pattern was created from a black and white sketch, using a PC. Some of the initial sketch lines were edited a bit, to make them better suited for back-stitches. The light grey stitches help to make the pattern more clear, and the blue stitches gives the pattern form. The dark silver stitches are added along the edges for more detail.
I made this embroidery with the blue vase as a starting point. I have chosen to have golden, silver and copper thread form a contrast with the blue shades.
