Are You Stitching?

Yes I really did take this picture upside down! As that is the way I was working on it. This is a Tapestry Faire canvas “Bastet” that I started a long time ago. It’s one of those that goes in the closet to be forgotten for a few years and then comes back out. I am pretty close.

What I was working on this canvas last was adding these beaded peyote circles that my “sistah” Meredith Willett showed me when I was at the Blue Bonnet Stitching Retreat. It is the purrfect addition for these circles, don’t you think?

Do you think that I should get hazard pay for this? Funny thing is that I didn’t even feel it!

Here’s the top with both sides done!

And here’s the whole canvas. I’m close, very close! Just the rest of the background.

So here’s Mooch and Miss Meow helping me stitch! Mooch could really care less, while Miss Meow…well she’s a different story! But sooner or later I can get her to leave my threads alone.

They’re both there! And I love it when they’re there!

This is a spot that I would prefer that they’re not there! But you know cats, they have their own agenda. She looked too cute and had to take a picture before I ask “what do you think you’re doing up there?” which they know means to get down!

And Mooch needed to do as her sister did!

So are you getting a lot of stitching done? So for me not as much as I am working 10-12 hours a day. Lots and lots of orders, thank goodness! But with 1 person working, it’s not quite as fast. Many stitchers say no problem, I have lots to do and others really need a new project, so we’re working as hard as we can to get those orders out! I do feel a huge responsibility to get stitching in your hands!

Stay healthy and keep on stitching!

  1. I remember you working on this a while back. Love the beading, it is a perfect choice! And love those kitties even more. I am working on my 2 passions, quilting and needlepoint. I finished 2 quilts and right now I am working on a valentine needlepoint heart. Stay safe, wear a mask!
