See this lovely picture of a mountainscape? Wouldn’t it be a wonderful needlepoint? To make one of your own, mark the outline of the shape you want on your canvas. Next, create an irregular edge the width of your finished piece and use it to trace each range of mountains on your canvas. The painting used four, a good amount. Be sure to use a pen made for drawing on canvas.
You don’t have to make the mountains fill the space, you can leave some sky, so it’s like the Blue Ridge canvas pictured below.
You’ve got the basic design. Now to pick colors. You’ll need four colors of thread, getting successively lighter and, possibly, grayer. They can be shades of a single color or different colors
Since stitches aren’t flat like the paint you will have to pick four or them too. They should become less and less textured as the colors get lighter.
Now that you have your design on canvas and your threads and stitches picked — go out and stitch!
