Bargello Fantasy Needlepoint

Bargello Fantasy is a Loretta Spears design, I started it around Easter last year but due to ill health had to stop work on it after only completing a small part of it. I was then unable to stitch at all during the time I had my operation and afterwards whilst having treatment and recovery and only started stitching again just before Christmas but then my time was taken up with creating Christmas Gifts and then after Christmas stitching some Birthday gifts which I finished around 3 weeks ago which is when I started work again on Bargello Fantasy called by me 'Blue' this is a companion piece to the other Loretta Spears design that I stitched just after Christmas last year called Bargello Symphony which was called by me 'Pink'

Your Bargello Fantasy is absolutely gorgeous. I was sorry to hear you were ill and hope you are 100% well again.

This is lovely! The blue colors are just beautiful. It will be a wonderful companion piece to your pink bargello. Celeste

Terry,
What a wonderful job you have done with this project and I love all those changes that you have made to the piece. It is hard to imagine that not long ago you were a beginner in needlepoint :-)

Terry, I just received the Bargello Fantasy chart. Could you tell me what threads you used other than the listed DMC ones. I am slightly confused about the Blue overdye floss (#110). And DMC Flower Thread 2359 & Danish Flower Thread 220. I have been told that Flower Thread is no longer available. What (if any) substitutes did you use. Please email me privately at:

I am having surgery week after next & would like to get stash as soon as possible.Thank you.

Beautiful design. Where ever did you get the chart for this? I haven't seen a bargello piece like this one for a long time :)

I have the chart for this - lucky me! However I am having awful trouble getting some of the threads for this ins Aus - especially the DFT and the DMCFT. What did you use for your overdye?

That is just incredibly beautiful stitching - congratulations.
