African Lady by Christine Hawley

Third Place, Non-Professional Non-Original with Instructions
The Linda Calsing Award

This needlepoint canvas was done with several other needlepoint colleagues working on their own similar canvas. Shay Pendray helped to plan and choose stitches and threads. We shared beads and watched as each of us chose slightly different creative ways to use the materials. I enjoyed completing this piece with this diverse variety of threads and beads. The brilliant colors were a joy to work with which contributed to the energy felt here! This lady is predominantly blue. There is a sister lady yet to come who is predominantly red.
