Here is the Kelly Clark Nativity with stitch guide by Amy Bunger. I have never enjoyed stitching a project as much as this one. The stitch guide is one of the best I have worked from. If you have never done a Home Study Course from Amy, I strongly recommend that you sign up for one. Her choice of threads and stitches are just totally amazing. I have finished the manger and am almost done with infant but have to put it down for awhile to work on the class that I am taking from our LNS.
As Denise informed you, I am taking the class and she is working from the stitch guide. We have changed the border already. We will be doing a rhodes stitch for the corners and fern stitch in between the rhodes. We found the stitch for this in Amy's Chapter on Borders in Amys's Cookbook for Stitchers. If I had the time, I would also change the background but time is of the essence. The background is a darning pattern, and it is a very quick stitch. Tomorrow, I will post a picture of the ribbon initial canvas.
My first All That Glitters Club canvas arrived. It is totally amazing. The threads, stitches and beads used are just mind blowing. I cannot wait to get started on this one. I will call Nancy of Needle House to ask permission to post pictures of my work before I post anything. I am hope to get started on the project next week.
As you can see, I am a little over my head but I am on time with the Nativity and will have my homework done for the ribbon initial before the next class.
