I actually *finished* some needlepoint projects!
This handpainted canvas was stitched in 2013. I used metallic-blend (or Kreinik) threads for all the ornaments and silk/wool blend (I think it was Impressions) for the ornament ribbons and background. I really love how it turned out. I don't know the canvas artist - let me know if you know who painted it! It might be Needlepoint of Back Bay?
This canvas was painted by Michael Wilhoite of Needlepoint of Back Bay. I stitched it all in silk fibers and basketweave.
As it is a gift for Travis, I tried to make the finishing masculine but also youthful. (He's 7.)
Pinch pleat edge on the corners with twisted cording edge.
