The Mantle is back from the framer. He suggested a very fancy schmancy type frame, because we were triple matting the stitching & setting it in to look like a shadowbox. This allows the 3-D effect to show up more.
This week I finished a Melissa Shirley candy cane. I actually have 8 more I want to do for Christmas, as well as a couple of Kathy Shenkel mini socks that I ordered from my LNS. I'd like to get all the Christmas stuff done early so I don't have that pressure in the summer. I have big stitching projects planned for this summer---just you wait!!
I downloaded my instructions for the ANG April SOTM, & I actually started that last night; it seems like it will be fun & I got the pattern of the stitch set pretty readily. I also received Lesson 1 of my SNS Christmas Stitches I, which I plan to do this weekend.
Busy, busy!! Denise
