This is London Calling


English Collection

Should you by any chance be in London this summer for the 2012 Olympics, you might want to pick up some needlepoint canvases that you might not see everyday back in the States.  I bought this particular one at Tapisserie, an absolutely must-see needlepoint destination in Knightsbridge, around the corner from Harrods.  Of course I spent far too much, but this classic design on an earth-colored canvas is the nearest I’ll ever get to owning an English country estate, so there you have it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know the designer’s name.  You can view the piece, along with similar canvases I own, in a brand new gallery, which I’ll dub the English Collection.  I’ll put this gallery up a bit later.
