Resting Life is the beginning of a new venture for me. As most of you know, the symmetry and flow of mandalas has a special appeal to me, so when I saw these pieces by Adam Millward, I fell in love with them. The style immediately lends itself to needlework, and as usual I've added my own flair with beads and specialty stitches.

If you love Adam's artwork as much as I do, check out his website where you can buy prints, blankets, scarves and even request custom paintings: https://www.nexusvisions.com/

Floss used in the model is from Dinky Dyes and floss packs can be purchased from your favourite needlework shop.

Fabric used in the model is from Zweigart and can be purchased from your favourite needlework shop.

Additional Northern Expressions Needlework Designs can be found at Dinky Dyes, Hoffman Distributing, or can be ordered through your favourite shop.

Materials
Stitch Count: 301w x 301h
Design Size: 15 ¼ x 15 ¼ inches on 40 count fabric
16 ¾ x 16 ¾ inches on 36 count fabric
19 x 19 inches on 32 count fabric
21 ½ x 21 ½ inches on 28 count fabric

Fabric used for the model is 40ct Raw linen from Zwiegart. Because the design uses specialty and fractional,
linen or evenweave fabric is recommended for ease of stitching, but any count of evenweave will work, you
don't have to use 40ct ;)

* The DMC and Dinky Dyes are not an exact match, but they're fairly close.

The 36/40 ct floss estimates are based on my own stitching on 40ct plus a bit, the 28/32 ct estimates are my
math, but I tend to round up so you're more likely too have to much than too little. On 36 or 40ct, you'll want 1
strand of floss for cross stitch, quarter stitches and specialty stitches and I used to 2 strands for backstitch to
really make the lines stand out. On 28 or 32 ct, you'll want 2 strands for cross stitch and fractional stitches, 1
strand for specialty stitches and 3 strands for backstitches.

** The bead conversion to Mill Hill is not very close, but it will give a similar feel. I'm using the charted colours
on 40 ct and while they're a tight fit, they're scattered so it isn't an issue.

Happy Stitching!!
