These designs can be stitched in any color thread on any color cloth. They require approximately 11 yards of thread each.

About the design:

This is the second pair of ‘medallions’, snakes made by stringing together a number of circular designs. As I mentioned on the first of these patterns, the circles are totally creations from the often jumbled depths of my mind and have no meaning beyond their aesthetic appeal.

In keeping with the heraldic color theme, I’ve called these ‘Sanguine’ and ‘Vert’. ‘Sanguine’ is a dark, blood red color and, in heraldry, and can stand for “blood-thirsty”. ‘Vert’ is a green color and can stand for “hope, joy, and wisdom”.
