Little progress

Sorry there is no photo tonight.  I finished the mountains at the bottom of the canvas and started doing the Interlocking split stitch.  I did not like it.  I pulled it all out.  Better luck on that tomorrow.  In the meantime, Judy has asked me who the artist was on this.    Suffolk sheep was an original art piece painted by Beth Van Hoesen and this canvas interpretation was done  by Doris Gustafson.  Otto was stitched by Susan Portra and written up in 1991, and I saw the canvas on eBay and bid on it.

Not to worry. There are many hitches in stitching such large pieces and figuring them out is more important than giving us eye candy.

Just don't do it too often! LOL

Jane, waiting for the treats here in CH

That is amazing! The one in the new Art Institute of Chicago catalog looks exactly like it - but with bells around it's neck. Hmmm. Makes you wonder. Linnea Riley did that one. Most of her things are cats.
