Regular Blog readers will know one of my favorite designers is SharonG. I love realistically shaded canvases and she does some of the very best. Some of Sharon's Italian landscapes were inspired by a series of photographs Denise took around her place in Ponza, Italy. Denise kindly has posted the framed original photos and her stitched interpretations on her blog. Click on the photos for a better look. Isn't it interesting how SharonG changed the elements in the photos to make the design her own? Denise did a fabulous job stitching the canvases.
You can see good photographs of the plain canvases on SharonG's website.
Speaking of SharonG and fabulous stitchers, wait'll you see what Belle did with the SharonG dragonfly sampler....
Amazing designs interpreted by amazing stitchers!
By coincidence, Rittenhouse has published a bit about stumpwork kits and the beginner's class they have planned. If you are interested in learning more about using stumpwork in your stitching, you will want to give this a read.
