Will Tomorrow Never Come

Wiseman from Quail Run Native American Nativity
I am taking an embellishment class from Laura Taylor at The Needle Works tomorrow and Monday.  I have never met Laura but I have heard she is extremely talented and fun.  More postings tomorrow!

P.S.  This is the canvas I am taking.

More Progress on Ewe and Eye's Coming Home

Filled in the tent stitches
 My camera on my IPhone doesn't capture the difference in texture and color between threads.  I promise it looks great.  I did run out of the Weeks Dye Works.  I hope I can find the same tones in another skein.

Back to Coming Home

Almost finished the grass on the right of the house

Bad lighting but good stitch detail of Victorian Step Variation
There was very little stitching here this weekend.  The unstitched spots here will be filled in with a tent stitch using two strands of Burmilana.

Oh my!

Could this be any more gorgeous?  One of the Swans stitched this bag and it just came back from the finishers.  She bought the canvas and threads in DC.  Incredible.

Ewe and Eye's Coming Home

I pulled out this old friend.  I'm stitching it using a guide by Amy Bunger.  I love it.

More Stuff From Memphis

During Eliz/Steph 3.0 last month we went sequin/doodad shopping.  We split some of the bags since neither one of us will ever need 500 of anything.  Or will we?  Here's what we got….

One bag of each of the above

One bag each of the holly leaves, spiders and kitty cat.  The top is a Xmas mix bag.

Frosty sequins and nice quality bells
You never know what you might need while creating.
