Drawn Thread's Sanctuary



Drawn Thread's design,called The Sanctuary, was really lovely to stitch. It uses needlepoint silks which I really prefer over many silks.

Projects like this really separate the men from the boys, to use an old expression...I'm a 'boy' in this case! What a fabulous design; I tried to get a closeup but couldn't get it any larger than one size up. Even then I could still see what a complex project it would have been.

It's gorgeous! I have this one in my stash. Whether I'll ever stitch it or not is another question, but seeing yours posted has given me a little motivation to at least consider it for my next large project!

I guess I will have to figure out how to make my pictures "grow". It is a lovely design with lots of specialty stitches. I have a few others completed by the same designer but this one might have been my favorite.

This turned out well. I like the dark frame & mat you selected

When i went to House of Stitches for a frame, I ended up with a light frame w/o mat. The frame is sort of a taupe metallic.

I'm looking forward to putting the sampler on display during the NANI exhibit in october.
