Crowns and Tiaras and Stitch Guides (Leigh Designs)

Are you a fan of historical canvases, particularly things related to English history? Or are you fascinated by jewels and bling?  Whatever sort of person you are,  you are going to go nuts over the new crowns series from Leigh Designs.  Click on the photos to see the stitched models of the first four (the last four haven't got guides yet).

There are four stitch guides available already for the series.  This is the class Sandy Arthur taught at the Winter 2016 TNNA show.  The second link below shows all the threads and other things used that are listed in the guide.

Pat Miller, Sharon Quick and Carolyn Taggart also have written guides for a canvas from this set.

Here is Sharon's crown.

This is Pat Miller's "Empress."  It is my personal favorite with all that bling!
