Kaleidescopes ~ K1

All stitches are cross stitch.

I don't know if people in this digital day and age can understand the charm of looking through a kaleidescope, but they have always held a great deal of charm for me.

The ever changing patterns and colors of a well made kaleidescope. The name was coined in 1817 by Scottish inventor Sir David Brewster.. "kaleidoscope" is derived from the Ancient Greek (kalos), "beautiful, beauty", (eidos), "that which is seen: form, shape" and (skopeo), "to look to, to examine", hence "observation of beautiful forms."

Beautiful forms they are indeed and it has been my wish to create patterns that give the feel of a kaleidescope frozen in all its lovely mirrored images. I am happy to introduce the first pattern, K1, of what I hope will be a series, "Kaleidescopes".
