CORRECTED POST FOR: Desertscape, 3D needlework project(added patternthat was not on prior posting of this project; (3 photos).
Prize winning DESERTSCAPE needle work project. Taken from Annie’s Pattern Club booklet, Oct – Nov 1983. Photos and directions for the winning project in the Plastic Canvas contest. I will be presenting this through photographs because it is rather long but it authenticates the age as well. May need to be zoomed when utilizing the instructions. If this doesn’t provide adequate visual let me know and I’ll write it out (see after fourth photo for email address).
I thought the 3D effect was different and therefore might be a project many have not attempted. I hope there are some users out there who this will be a first 3D needlework project because it’s always exciting to accomplish a task that will add knowledge to an activity already enjoyed.
So, here are photos of the pattern for the Desertscape project; full breadth and close up photos
Following, are the instructions needed to complete this vintage 3D Desertscape needlework project. Most of us will need to zoom in on the instruction photos to read them. After zooming in, if you cannot clearly read or see any of the photos and text within this blog, you may contact me at

As usual I hope this little project finds itself several new homes. If ever some time, I would like to learn such crafts. I think I’d enjoy them and I would really like to be of more help to those who use this blog page.
Maybe, in time, I will be able to suggest where you might find technical information. Please if you have technical information that pertains to this project, it would be great if you would post it for all to read. I will gladly exchange a posting favor for such.
Cheers to all you crafty people; keep the crafts going!
