Gorgeous, creative needlepoint to inspire

I came across this design whilst browsing. I don’t think it’s especially new, but I think it is gorgeous, with a really innovative use of different canvaswork stitches for texture, and wonderfully vivid depth of colour.  I beieve the designer is Rose Swalwell of Derwentwater Designs, who (if I’m correct) studied at the Royal School of Needlework.

At only £13.50 for a complete kit it’s an absolute bargain, and a wonderful way to get started with more creative needlepoint.  (You can buy online here & probably lots of other places, too!)
