Now Playing: architecture has me in stitches
Topic: New Work
This stitching card is a re-design of a string-art pattern from the 70's. I picked up one of those old pamphlets, with three patterns in it, from a used book store. The pamphlet has odd paintings of historic houses over which one was supposed to stitch. They are all big enough to mount as 8 1/2 x 11 inch wall art.
Unfortunately, they are all designed with strings of bright blue, red, yellow, and green. YUK! So I reduced the pattern down to fit on cards and changed the colors to soft versions of the originals. I like to do them up on watercolor paper.
The pamphlet is still under copyright (more pity to the original artist) so I cannot share the patterns.
