I teased you with this picture awhile back…remember? A few of you guessed who it was right away and some were very curious as to who’s canvas was hiding under all those threads!
Well this is the canvas! and as always Raymond outdid himself. Don’t you just love it? Well I do and that’s why I say “everybody loves Raymond!” I love stitching for Raymond as there is no pressure, no hurry up and it’s just relaxed and enjoyable.
Well here it is all finished! Lots of Glow in the Dark Threads along with a beading bonanza of different type beads in a variety of beading styles. It was fun to stitch! Now the stitch guide has been a different story. Now I am not even counting in my time for the basic text and making sure I get all the threads accounted for. I have learned to do the thread list as I go along and not wait to the very end! Just a little too easy to forget what color, how many strands, etc. The draft is forwarded to a stitching person who proof reads it and makes me think…did I explain that in the best possible way? Rewriting, tweaking it, drawing stitches and lining everything up and another 20 hours…pfft! I still need to add 2 more stitches and a final check before I get it off to Raymond. So thank you Raymond, thank you for being so very patient!
So if you just gotta have this canvas, give your favorite needlepoint shop or your local needlepoint shop a call and I am sure that they would love to order it for you!
For everybody that has been dealing with the snow this week…I empathize!
Doesn’t this look delish? I wish I knew how they did that!
Remember too, to spring ahead 1 hour tonight! Oh no, does that mean that I lose an hour of stitching time?
Sylvester wasted no time at all to move and until next time…keep on stitching
