Tropical Fantasy: Sue Lentz, designer

Project: Tropical Fantasy
(1994 Rainbow Gallery chart)

Designer: Sue Lentz

Type of needlework: Needlepoint

Photos: 3

Comments: This is a project that I did early on when I learned how to stitch. I had seen it already stitched in the store and it was absolutely dead gorgeous.

Unfortunately after having a bit of problems with this project, I had put it aside, but I had the good foresight to take it out again and finish it this time around.

Now, believe me when I say this, any photos that I have been able to take so far and even the one that came with the instructions, which I have just added below do not and I repeat, DO NOT do it justice to this stitched piece. It is absolutely dead gorgeous. This is one of the finished project that I love the most.

This project could actually be stitched in an another set of colors. I have slightly changed the colors of mine, but not by much so it is difficult to see the differences when we look at the picture that came with the instructions and mine.

The main stitches used here are Cross Stitches, Rhodes Stitches and Smyrna Crosses. Oh yes, there were some beads too (pearls).
