Loretta Spears Designs


I have been sorting out my stash and have found some Loretta Spears designs that I purchased years ago and am debating about starting a new one soon. These are a couple I have found and need to dig deep into the treasure chest to find the others. My very dear friend Pierrette has just started one of Loretta Spears Mystery projects and you can see how she is progressing here
on her blog.

Pierrette taught me how to needlepoint via the internet and my very first project in needlepoint was Loretta Spears Bargello Symphony which we both stitched together and I then went onto complete all on my own Loretta Spears Bargello Fantasy, her designs are a delight to stitch and the world of needlepoint lost a great designer when she became ill and her family would not let any of her designs be reprinted and no new designs were ever available.

Terry,

How can I ever forget that experience, you and I stitching Bargello Symphony over the internet (smiling).

I love those ornaments of hers too. They should be fun to stitch and not take long either.

Do you still have Bargello Symphony and Bargello Fantasy? These two designs I have wanted to stitch 4 years, but have had little to no success finding them or anyone who has stitched them and willing to pass on the charts. I will gladly purchase or exchange for my hand beaded needlework tools! stitch4life@verizon.net
