Has it really been 10 days?

I can't believe I haven't posted in 10 days!  Living la vida loco here.  I wish I was sitting down to stitch on these two newbies from Painted Pony.

Did I ever tell you....

...about my class with Meredith Willett? I took one of the wisemen from my Native American nativity set.  I got some cool stitches for him.

Beginning the Overskirt

Perfect stitch

I could not figure out what to do for the overskirt.  I was thumbing through my copy of Jane Zimmerman's Ultimate Encyclopedia of Canvas Embroidery Volume One when I found this perfect stitch on page 137.  I am using Kreinik ribbon for the red and Accentuate for the gold.  I love it.
