|Citrus Pomegranates design is a Bargello needlework embroidery presented within a 60-plus page booklet available in printed and Kindle formats. The pomegranate shapes, a classic Bargello pattern, are worked in the bright colors of citrus fruit and the dark cobalt blue of my favorite kitchen bowl for displaying oranges and lemons. This design utilizes the traditional Bargello method of needlework straight stitches worked in steps to create the design.

This Bargello design may look complex, but this design is easy to stitch when you follow my booklet’s numerous pages of zoomed-in charts and photos. My booklets are divided into sections that discuss the main pattern parts of each design, present photos and graphed charts in color and close-ups so you can see the details. Within the e-book format you can expand the charts and photos throughout the booklet to view details down to individual stitches.This 145w by 145h size design is approximately 8 inch square when work on 18 count canvas.
Two sample pages from the printed booklet are shown below and a screen shot of one of these sample pages is from viewing the ebooklet on my iPhone.
My booklet Citrus Pomegranates Bargello, 50-plus pages in length, is offered in e-booklet format and printed as a 8 by 10 inch paper bound booklet.

|This is one of my favorite photos. It was taken as an early March snow storm was moving into our area several years ago. I like the range of the sky’s slate colors, light grey through soft blues and decided to also work the Citrus Pomegranate Design in these colors. Below you can see Citrus Pomegranate Design worked in my Winter Colorway. I added a Section 10 to the Citrus Pomegranate booklet listing the threads used for the winter colorway and pattern changes that I incorporated within the four center pomegranates of the original chart.|
