Is it the baseball that puts me in my zen? Or am I just trying to make up for lost time? Seriously for about a 2 month span, I barely picked up a needle!
I am really enjoying working on this canvas by Thorn Alexander! Stitches by Susan Portra and so far I’ve been following her suggestions, with no changes. I am sure you’re wondering why those black lines are drawn in on the green? Or maybe not!? We’re extending the heavier gold border all around. I’m having an issue with 1 of the stitches not working, but Susan will be in the shop next weekend, so I’m sure we’ll figure it out!
Do you remember my New Years resolution? Well I completed it by 50%! I finished 1 of the ornaments when I threw down the gauntlet saying for every new canvas started, I would finish something!
This was not part of my challenge, but does this count? This is a Charley Harper canvas and was a class taught by Meredith Willett at the winter TNNA in Las Vegas. Working on that nest was really a step out of the comfort zone… stitch it so it looks messy?! Seriously? I need to add the worm and the eyes which the latter is done with a 12ss Swarovski crystal. Meredith told us that a 12ss covers 4 canvas threads on 18 mesh canvas.
This was last night before AlleyCat hunkered down on my lap for her catnap. Time for me to settle in for a long day of stitching and baseball!
