PaintedCanvas Spotlight: Hanukkah Cookies

Threadsuggestions by Kreinik
 ask your local needlepoint shop for Denise DeRusha canvases #192, 193, 195

DeniseDeRusha Designs features several Judaic-themed projects. We picked these threecookie canvases because they are small and quick to stitch (plus we love sugarcookies). Stitch three, and then finish them in their cookie shapes to set on aplate for a sweet display. 

Thecanvases are painted on 18 mesh. We suggest the following threads:

  • Anchor cotton embroidery floss: 1045 and 1046 for the tan colors, plus 129, 130, and 131 for the blue shades.
  • Kreinik Tapestry (#12) Braid 3202 Cat’s Eye, 018V Vintage Navy, and 001V Vintage Silver
  • Kreinik 1/16” Ribbon 060 Midnight (optional)

Dueto their small size, tent stitch is easy and appropriate for stitching theoutside edge of each cookie and the blue frosting areas. Listed below are oursuggested embellishments to help you bring the canvas to life—using Kreinikmetallics of course!

•Stitch the silver flakes in Tapestry (#12) Braid 001V Vintage Silver.This is a brand new Kreinik Vintage thread color, and it’s perfect for themuted silver finish of silver food decorations. You have several options here;tent stitch would look like tubular accents, or work a cross stitch for more ofa spangle look.

Star cookie, dark blue#195 from Denise DeRusha Designs

•Create the gold spangle ‘food decorations’ with #12 Braid 3202, and thesilver ones with #12 Braid 001V.

•An easy option for the long blue stitches is to use blue Bugle Beads in a mediumsize. However, an alternative would be to use Kreinik 1/16" Ribbon in color060 Midnight. This is a blue and brown variegated color, giving the impressionof, yes, chocolate! Stitch the background in the floss, and then just do astraight stitch with the 1/16” Ribbon. Use your finger to keep the ribbon flatas you lay the stitch. You can also couch the ribbon for added security.
