Here’s the latest gallery from Needlepoint Land Studio!  The canvas is by Laura Seeley, for Maggie Designs.

Here are the threads I bought for this canvas.

These threads are from a company named Tentakulum.  These are known as the Painter’s Threads Collection.  They are a variegated ribbon floss shimmer; each color is named after a famous artist (e.g., Gauguin, Monet, etc.). I’m also using Planet Earth silk (opal) for the sky, and Renaissance Designs‘ angel hair snow for the cat’s chin.
