Tropical Fantasy close-up below.
Tropical Fantasy is a Sue Lentz cross stitch design that was especially created for Rainbow Gallery (1994).I have to confess that I am not big on cross stitch, but I have enjoyed tremendously stitching this design.
Tropical Fantasy has a dimensional look to it because of the Rhodes stitches of all sizes that we can find in this piece. There is also some Smyrna crosses as well as the regular cross stitches.
This piece is outstanding when looking at it upclose and unfortunately so difficult to take a good photo, mainly because of the glass over it.
The design is a little over 8 inches square and has been stitched on a 20 count fabric. The material list is mainly Reflecta, Fiesta and Neon Rays threads and to top it all some 2mm pearls added in the border.
