Just finished the shower curtain tonight.
I was at the framers today and saw the best frame for this piece. Now I'm excited.
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.
Just put the last stitch in my brickcover that I stitched for our 30th anniversary.
Love it. All Silk n Ivory and Planet Earth Silk. Canvas by Canvasworks.
I started in May. Would have loved to have finished it in August in time for our anniversary, but hey, that's life.
Now to find our special brick and do the finishing.

I find it disturbing that this type of thing still happens to me. It obviously only needs the object to possess XX chromosomes. No need to be young and beautiful. Very powerful, what she has done with words here. Go, Duchess.
Photos of what is in my stitching bag right now.
From these you'd think I was only working on painted canvas. Not true. It's just what's here in the bag available for photography.
The two small ones are DC Designs from Amanda Lawford. I'm gonna have fun compensating around the cats and bats! Not. Oh, and the cats' eyes glow in the dark.
The sheep is going to be all French knots with two strands of Burmilana. Cute little face.
And finally I'm approaching the finish line on my brickcover. Love this still.
I started this needlepoint brick cover back in May to give to my hubby for our 30th anniversary. Well, that was Monday and it's not finished. Big surprise.
I made good progress for the first six weeks, then other things got in the way. It's a Canvasworks canvas and it's beautifully painted. I'm using Planet Earth silk and Silk n Ivory. My colors match pretty well, so well that it can be difficult to tell where my stitching ends😊
Below that is a little magic sign I did for the man, too. If you watch Modern Family, you might get where this came from in the season finale. It's a Kathy Shenkel piece. These little signs are quick and cute and there's quite a few of them.
