Few years ago I bought a large quantity of blue mouline thread to do a big project. Good thing because about 90% is still untouched. I have this fear of unfinished things because of thread finishing before the project is done and, to be sure I buy ….. to much.
A pillow front with Romanian stitched motifs was just the right thing to start with blue .
Red and black are the mainly used traditional colours in Romanian traditional motifs but also blue, green and yellow.
The Romanian traditional motif is the cross and is inspired from the book “ Indemanare si traditie“ by Livia Tichindelean and Mirela Gorea Chelaru.To me looks more like a flower but is nice anyway.
The stitch used is back stitch 1 thread of blue mouline on 2/2 thread of aida
