I just returned from a weekend needlepoint class taught by Betty Chen Louis.  The name of the pattern is Peony Ribbons.  I have just recently started getting more involved with needlepoint and this class was very educational.  If anyone has ever had the pleasure to take a class with Betty Chen Louis then you would know what I mean.  She spent a lot of time teaching color theroy.  The Peony Ribbon pattern requires a lot of individual thought and intrepretation of color gradiation in the shading.  I look forward to finishing this pattern soon so that I can post a picture.
