I had every intention of coming here and posting Camp Wannastitch progress.
No time. No way. No how.
But here is a piece back from the finisher this week.
I got this at Garden District Needlework in New Orleans a few years ago.
On Saturday we had some new windows installed. Which necessitated my moving everything to one side of the room.
Today is move it back day and pack for Camp Wannastitch.
Room is definitely warmer and I may use it more in the winter months now.
Leaving for Camp Friday morning, returning Monday at dinner time. This will be my 4th year attending and I have so much fun. Now what projects to bring?
Today I found my Christmas Spirit in a strange place - the meat counter at Wegmans.
What a zoo. I could only laugh.
And made some other people smile and laugh, too.
Better to rejoice and be happy than be frazzled and vexed.
In the spirit of rejoicing, here are the latest two things I've had framed.
The orange love piece is an original creation. You can tell by its imperfections. It makes me smile every time I look at it. It's been hanging with Santa for a few days. Totally ruins the seasonal color scheme, but I don't care.
The blue piece was an ANG correspondence course, Ghordian Knot, by Rachel Atkinson that I did last year.
Photo doesn't begin to do it justice. It's stunning.
I love it when a plan works out! Needle felting the base for the shower cap allowed me to get the exact shape I wanted.
Then Lori at Waste Knot Needlepoint suggested ruching Sparkle Rays for the ruffle which was way easier and quicker than what I was planning.
Isn't it great?
Now to add whiskers and finish the tub.
Also had a small ornament finish which is what happens when you hang out at a car dealership and come home with a new car. I bought this in New Orleans - it's the Cathedral at night. I've already shipped it off to the finisher. Can't wait to see what she does.
While trying to impose some organization on my studio today, I've been encountering some interesting stuff.
These two in particular - a DMC long stitch canvas and a Royal Paris canvas.
The DMC piece is 25" tall. It has numbers for pearl cotton on the side. I'm wondering what else I could do with this. Any suggestions?
The other one is a Royal Paris canvas. It's 25" by 45". That's large.
I got both of these because if they didn't come home with me, they were going in the dumpster.
That's me. Rescuer of lost canvas.
