Las Vegas House


When my husband accepted a job in Las Vegas a few years ago, we bought a house there. Oh boy! All these blank walls to fill up! Since we kept our Reno house, the new one needed everything, including wall decor! Whoopee! I started stitching like mad. The main color scheme of the house is aqua/brown/black so I pretty much stuck with that for the needlepoint pieces I did.

The first one I'm showing you is Adagio by Amybear. I used Watercolours, Kreinik and Pearl Cotton, changing the colors to fit my house. This is a fun piece to stitch, if you don't make any counting mistakes! The many different stitches used keeps you from getting bored!

Wow, that looks great up close. The iridescent and shiny threads as very pretty. Your photos show detail very well.

Very beautiful, I love the southwest color scheme; I always tell everyone that turquoise is my "signature" color! And what goes better with aqua but copper...and silver...and black...
