Many years ago I stitched the above trilogy. It is called Earth, Sea and Sky. It was a very unique Bargello back then and incorporated a "found" object on each section. I think it is still unique today.
I have decided to rework these 3 designs, using today's materials and publishing them as 3 separate designs. The threads I used on the original are no longer available and at that time canvas only came in brown or white. This time I will be using Silk & Ivory, Watercolours and some metallics. At least that is what I know right now! The "found" objects will be purchased, not found (smile) and are available at most craft stores.I have started the new version of "Sea". It is about half finished. So far it is all Silk & Ivory on Sandstone canvas. I may use blue canvas for the other two. I have purchased a box of shells and hope I can figure out how to write instructions for attaching one! Each piece will be an 8" round and I am hoping (fingers crossed) they will fit in the new Sudberry House round Crown Plate frames.
I have changed the name to "Nature - Sea", "Nature - Sky", etc. What do you think?
Jane (Chilly Hollow) mentioned that I have new Bargellos in the works. The other one is the one I posted about a week or so ago. And she's right, I don't have a name for it yet. I'm hoping to start the next variation of that one over the holidays.
