|Night Rider, from the Old Crows Series|
This is my latest project for Leigh Designs. It is called "Night Rider" and is from the Old Crows series. All of the Old Crows are on 18 count custom sage green marbled canvas and are 10x10 inches square. (Since my scanner bed is only 9x11, the top and bottom are cut off slightly in the picture above. Sorry!) The entire series of Leigh's elegant Halloween set for 2012, just introduced at the Baltimore TNNA Market, is on the Leigh Designs website at this link.
Night Cap from the Old Crows also has a stitch guide by Sandy Arthur of the Shapes of Needlepoint series fame which you can get from Leigh Designs. Night Rider's guide is available directly from me or can be ordered from Leigh Designs when your shop orders the canvas.
I'm sorry you can't see the beads on the leaves or the metallics in the background, the bird and the witch's ball on the photo above. They don't photograph well but in person they all a lovely gleam that is dear to the heart of any crow!
My stitch guide is fifteen pages long, including a two page list of the threads and beads needed to stitch this project exactly like I did, nine diagrammed stitches, and includes an essay on light coverage stitching techniques. The retail price is $25 with wholesale pricing available. Email me at email@example.com for more information or if you wish to purchase the Night Rider guide.
