Stepping up

beedlepoint canvas

Key West style blue house


A bright and beautiful 5″ x 5″ 18m (also available on 13m) canvas just made its appearance at Needlepoint Land. This artist’s calling card is often a cat in front of a house. I would love to live in a cozy Key West style blue bungalow like this one! This canvas is a great candidate to use Anne Stradal’s needle-blending technique to create a dawn sky. The last conch house I stitched was done in Trebizond silk, but I think for this one I would use Pepper Pot Silk or Vineyard Silk, or maybe a combination of the two. I might also make the plants shinier and brighter with RG’s panache or Rayon floss.
