Completed Baby and Manger

I have just completed the stitching of Kit 1 of the Nativity Home Study Course by Amy Bunger,
canvas by Kelly Clark. I really enjoyed stitching this piece. Everyday I would look forward to working on it. Each area offered you new threads and stitches. You never got bored with stitching it. Amy's stitch guides are totally amazing. I learned so much from this first course. You were challenged but not to the point of frustration.
Kit 2, Mary, arrived on Friday and I can tell already that I am going to be challenged. I cannot wait to get started on her. I had a question about the background and emailed Amy last night and this morning I had a response to my question. Amy's courses are just like taking a class where the teacher is there to help you.
I cannot wait until May when my daughter, Jennifer, and I go to Memphis to meet Amy and take her Cook Up A Canvas Class. I can only imagine what wonderful stitches and threads she will come up with for our canvases.
Now I am going to stitch my first All That Glitters ornament that came several weeks ago. Will post pictures on my progress. After that I will stitch Kit 2, Mary, and then The Flakes from Ruth Schmuff will be arriving. There are just not enough hours in the day.

Lovely job, I am looking forward to watching your progress on this nativity. You've chosen well, Kelly Clark is a fabulous designer. I'm trying very hard not to take the plunge with her exquisite 12 Days of Christmas club at PFOS. Have fun in Memphis!
