A Completed Ponza Canvas

I finished the first of the Ponza canvases last weekend. Here you can see a close up of the rocks & foliage from the upper left side of the canvas.

I am very pleased with the way the whole canvas came out. Tony Minieri did a terrific job on the stitch guide. I saw Tony this week at the Techniques class that Linda & I are taking with Tony at The Edwardian Needle, & I brought this canvas along for him to see the finished item. I think Tony was happy with my work & proudly showed our class the canvas. He made sure to emphasize that Sharon G did this, & the other Ponza canvases from the photos I sent her from my home in Ponza. I did blush. ;)
I did not get to Ponza this year; I wish I did. This ocean scene is very representative of the beauty of the island, as are the other Sharon G canvases. Tonight I will start on the next of the Ponza scenes, a sunset. The link to that canvas is It is canvas DPW-02. I started my online class with Sharon through the Shining Needle Society on Wednesday of this past week. I love Sharon's work, & so I signed up for the year long class. I am already enjoying the class immensely.
BTW, I did break down & add the Fireside Vintage Ornaments Club. These were just too beautiful to resist, DESPITE the fact that I SWORE I had done more than enough Christmas ornaments for a while.
I actually finished another canvas this afternoon & will post a photo of that...perhaps tomorrow.

Hi Denise,

Congratulations on finishing the Ponza canvas! Beautiful!

I haven't bought any of the clubs yet though I did point them out to DH for possible Birthday or Christmas presents. :-)

Congratulations! This is gorgeous, Denise. You did a lovely job with Tony's help. It's wonderful that you collaborated with SharonG and Tony M. to create such a lovely piece.

Denise, This is magnificent. I love everything about it.
We will have fun working on your other Ponza canvases in the Sharon G Network via the Shining Needle Society.
