Tony Minieri and Lizards

Peggi has been working from a Tony Miniri stitch guide for this Tapestry Fair design called Leapin' Lizards.  The painted canvas can be ordered from Tapestry Fair and the stitch guide from Tony himself through Edwardian Needle (second link).

I think Leapin' Lizards is an Anne Jerlow design.  Tapestry Fair owns the right to distribute this piece now.

I Did Not Know That... UPDATED

I did not know that DMC has free stitch guides for painted canvases on their website.  What a treat!

UPDATE:  Robin King talks about the guides she wrote for the DMC site, with plenty of great photographs.

Here's a direct link to the page with the PDF files for you to download.  The canvases shown are all from Maggie or Associated Talents as of now, but I'm sure more will be added as they are available.
