Late in July I posted a needlepoint project Denise had been stitching and today is another Brenda Stofft Design entitled “Sheep with Floral Wreath B-189” available through your local needlework shop. The design measures 9×8 inches on 18 count canvas. Well, Denise has completed the canvas and she has kindly sent me some lovely photos to post for all of you to see. Isn’t it beautiful. Can you believe all those bullions creating the lovely texture in the sheep’s body? Yes, they are ALL bullions!
Here are some close-ups to give you an idea of the beautiful stitching.
I love all the different stitches in the background hills. She has used a number of my threads in this needlepoint canvas including
- Sky – size 8 perle cotton, colour #162 – 2 skeins
- Wreath – size 5 perle cotton, colour #169 – 1 skein AND colour #11 – 1 skein
- Flowers in the lower field – size 5 perle cotton, colour #182 – 1 skein
- Grass – size 5 perle cotton colour #11 – 1 skein
AND Denise has written a stitch guide for this canvas. Your local needlework shop can order both the canvas and stitch guide or you may contact Brenda Stofft. You may also contact Denise directly at email@example.com if you are interested in the stitch guide only. Thank you Denise for sharing your incredible talent! I have another canvas by Denise to share on Wednesday too.
