A Little More Candy

A few more candy canes have been accomplished over the past few weeks. 

I have done a lot of open background stitches on these, from skip tent to an open brick to a stitch I sort of made up.  I try to do the backgrounds first, for, as Jane from Chilly Hollow & I agree, backgrounds are endless. 

I have two more candy canes left, which will hopefully be completed in the next week or so. I have only  couple more Christmas canvases I want to finish for this year, so I'd like to stitch those up soon too.  Then I will be moving on to some large canvases, my Sharon G Ponza canvases.  

My stitching sister is in Memphis right now, as I type, with Amy Bunger.  I am so jealous, even though I couldn't go for a good reason--my DD's college graduation!  Yeah for Ashley!  

I am sure Linda will post lots & lots about her excellent adventure when she comes home.  Please keep your fingers crossed for good weather in Philly on Sunday.  Otherwise, I won't be stitching AND I'll be cranky because of the rain messing up the big day.

Talk to you all soon,

These are all darling. Your tree will be alive with candy canes! Congratulations on raising a college grad, these are exciting times for all. Now that tuition is a thing of the past will there be extra stash enhancements? Your weekend will shine whether the sun does or not. Enjoy!

Hi Denise,

I just love these candy canes. I'm still working on my first Halloween one as I changed some fibers and stitches (of course).

Just need to add the beads for the centers of the flowers and it will be done!

Congratulations to Ashley for graduating from college!

Our oldest is graduating High School this spring and will be entering college this fall. We are all so excited, especially since it seems like she just entered High School! :-)

Forgot to add that I'm looking forward to hearing about Linda's adventures with Amy!
