Needlepoint Works in Progess

 


 

Sir Leo - the Conductor

 

Sir Leo is one of a series of designs I've created focusing on amusing animal musicians, the others being, Cool Cats - featuring a trio of cats - a fiddler, a Horn and a Sax player - Big Boom Trio - Elephant Timpanists and Carmina Monkeys - a tropical Monkey band with a lead singer! All are amusing, colorful designs to stitch. More will be added as inspiration strikes......there is a Sir Leo at the keyboard in the works.

So far, I've used various colors of Kreinik Soie d'Alger - Kreinik metallic braid # 12 - A bit of glossy DMC Rayon floss and Anchor Marlitt - Anchor and DMC Pearl Cotton #5 to needlepoint most of this design - the canvas is about 75% stitched in the picture.

I was inspired to paint a larger version of the Flying Carpet design on13 mesh canvas to take advantage of the jeweled colors of Caron Collection's Rachelette threads - perfect for the fantasy figure's costume - adding just the right touch of shimmering highlights.
