St. Basil’s Cathedral – from Google earth
This past week I attended a three day class for the fabulous “St. Basil’s Cathedral” needlepoint project by Carole Lake. The photo above is fairly close to the view of the Cathedral in Carole’s needlepoint piece. You can see her piece on her website at: Carole Lake’s St. Basil’s.
As part of the kit, we were provided with a copy of the completed project. The image above is actually a photo of that copy.
This was my first Carole Lake class. It was all that a stitcher hopes for in a class — a great piece, an interesting instructor and a fun group of students. Ms. Lake’s stitch instructions are superb — they are extremely well organized and detailed. She provided a nice balance of instruction time and stitching time and her sense of humor is contagious.
At present, I have no major changes planned for this piece. The shape of some of the onion domes will likely be altered to be a bit more onion-like and I’m not sure what I want to do with the ground. I do expect to use the colors and threads provided in the kit.
Needless to say, I have not made any progress on other projects.
