Elephants on Parade

When I first met the amazingly talented Becki (who works at the shop now), she was working on this amazing piece.  Her husband bought it for her for Christmas a few years back.  He just picked out a piece that he thought she would like.  Isn’t he the best husband ever?  My husband wouldn’t even buy me gift certificate to the LNS before I owned a shop.



We worked together on the finishing, which was done by Pillows by Evelyn.  We selected a turquoise silk for the sides of the boxed pillow and added huge tassels on the corners.  This is the most stunning piece of needlepoint I’ve ever seen. Evelyn even called me to tell me that she had never seen such a magnificent  piece.



This is that stretched flair technique


Such a beautiful selection of stitches

    This piece is fabulous! Is the canvas available? If so, what is the price & did she do a stitch guide? This is really spectacular! A great job.

      Becki did not do a stitch guide for this piece. She is happy to work together with someone on sections of the canvas.
