March Finish

Only took me 6 months, which is kind of pitiful if I hadn't been working on other things.

Presenting Beach Dance by Lindy Stitches. I love Stephanie's quirkiness and sense of humor. She's got an entertaining Floss tube Channel, too. 

It took me most of the Grammy Awards to frog the flower on the right. But I decided that this needs to hang in our powder room where it can make me smile every day and the flowers need to match the paint.

Off to the framers soon!

Progress Report

Finished a carrot last night. This is part of a Kathy Shenkel Easter set. When it is finished it will look like this one. 

 Mending Hearts. I'm adding some gold #4 Kreinik to the background around the heart. Then finish couching the gold and the cording.

March Finish

 In the fall of 2019 I designed and stitched a little ornament for my ANG Chapter for our December meeting. We do a program called Holiday Surprise. So everyone got a piece of red canvas, a ball of white #8 pearl cotton, and my instructions. 

I did not have much of a teaching experience that night as the heat was out at our meeting location. It was freezing cold. Oh well. 

Fast forward to this year when I finally got around to stitching a second version. This one is blue on blue. With more blue for finishing it. 

I created a back to my ornament by just freestyling the information and adding some of the stitches from the front. 
A little bit of beading (like an hour or so) and I've got a finish.
