I'm working of a fabulous needlepoint! It's adapted from an original watercolor by Jane LaFazio called "Tree of Life: Oaxaca." There are so many design elements in the piece that I believe it could be broken down into several smaller pieces. So, I'm going to feature these sections one at a time starting with the "Our Lady of Guadalupe." You can see the original painting in its entirety at Jane's website  I hope to finish it soon so I can have it framed in time for the TNNA market in January. I did teach it in a two day class at the Needle Nook in La Jolla and I'm continuing to stitch with the students twice a month. It's such a fun project!

Threads used for this section are: Gold Frosty Rays, Green Overdyed Wildflowers, Orange Northern Lights Silk, Green blend Kreinik Metallic Braid,Lavender Splendor, Dark Purple Boucle', White/Gold Silk Lame' Braid, Flesh, Black, and Red Flosses, Green Impressions and Red Heart Buttons!
