Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US! And Happy Fourth Thursday of November to everyone else!

On this holiday I just wanted to share some amazing needlepoint eye candy. I found this amazing Bargello piece on EGA’s Greater Pacific Region site.

It’s stitched by Jeannette Clark and is such an inventive an whimsical use of Bargello, I just had to share it with you. She wrote this about her piece:

“I did this piece for step 3 of the Master Craftsman in canvas program with EGA. I have always thought that using bargello this way could look like flowers, so had to try it. In person the “fence” behind the flowers is not as pronounced a pattern as in the picture so the flowers and butterflies stand out more. I was trying for summer flowers against a weathered board fence. It was quite fun to do. The whole piece is bargello.”

I love all the patterns and the way she integrated Bargello into every single bit of this piece. The butterflies are four-way motifs, the plants are each a different Bargello pattern and the background is all Bargello as well.

Take a good look at that background. It’s got lots of colors, but because they are all pastels, it stays in the background.

What an amazing piece!

    I believe it is an original design and not a commercially available project, but you might contact the stitcher for more information.

    Keep Stitching,
