There is only one Iris, Iris Apfel that is. And the same can be said about Prince. Tess & Thorn are young designers bringing real relevance to painted canvas offerings. Painted to perfection. Sure you can do stitches (asked by nearly everyone as if tent stitch is a cop-out). But basketweave is perfectly appropriate to these pieces. Its about stitching something that reflects pop culture for your home (or a friend /family). A chance to work with fabulous fibers and color to keep your senses alert. Its a way to relax and have something forever to show for it. Consider it takes about an hour to stitch a sq inch of basketweave and suddenly needlepoint is a lot cheaper than eating out or going to movies. The best part? It might just make you feel better too.
