Our dear customer, John, has been working on this tapestry for over three years! He stopped by the shop with it framed to show us. It is magnificent!
John is a pretty big guy so you can tell from the picture how big this piece is. I think it 3 x 4 feet!
John can tell you exactly how many stitches are in the piece . . .how much thread it took . . .and I think how much time. I started tuning him out when he started spouted that nonsense. LOL! I do NOT want to know how long it takes me to stitch a piece. The best I can judge is how many episodes of a show I’ve binge watched on Netflix.
His Basketweave and tension are perfect!
He adjusted the colors from the printed design. They are so vibrant!
Basketweave is simply stunning. And personally, I think the hardest thing to do correctly in needlepoint. So, don’t think you need to add all sorts of stitches and embellishments. Every once in a while I pick up a little Basketweave piece to check my tension and technique. I think that’s really important to do from time to time. But I can assure you, no way in Hell could I ever get through a piece of this magnitude in Basketweave!
Beautiful and amazing!
That tapestry is magnificent. What a labor of love
Incredible. Where would you find a canvas like that to complete. Maybe not quite so large. ????
I don’t know of any canvases like that one that aren’t very large
Well where would you find the canvas that large. Shops in my area don’t carry Classics styles
I think the one featured was a kit that was ordered online. I don’t know of any wholesalers with those types of designs
This is magnificent! I think it would be enhanced having it matted. Frame maybe in gold. Now that I crituzed your framing, let me be sure to tell you it is the best needlepoint I have seen. I wish I could see ir in real life.
So impressive! Congratulations, John!!
Absolutely amazing!!!!! Congratulations and well done.
Absolutely gorgeous!!! Stitching is outstanding! Well done, John!
Wow! It’s beautiful.
This is magnificent = What kind of a frame or what did you use to stitch it on being its so huge?
Did you roll it on something? Can t imagine how you worked on it.
Really interested – Thanks, Rae
i’d love to know the story of the art! I understand some of the symbolism but I’m sure there is more that I’d love to learn.
