By Lorene Salt
This piece was inspired by the large stained glass windows in the Great Room of the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park. This is my interpretation of one of those windows. A colour palette of burgundy and blue was used, but students are encouraged to pick their own colour palettes. The piece is embellished with pearls.
Ahwahnee is a sampler of layered stitches, intricate borders, string art stitches such as 8-Point Star, Double Fan, Sprat's Head, Crescent Wave and Chilly Hollow designed to have you thinking outside the box. This isn't your grandmother's needlepoint!
