This is a Melissa Shirley canvas with stitch guide by Ruth Schmuff. Ruth did an absolutely fantastic job on this piece. Her thread selection and stitches are just to die for. This is such a fun stitch. The background is finished and the leaves are almost done. I have two leaves left to stitch before I attach the heshi shells. Then on to the stems and flowers. I want to try to catch up with the class schedule so I can finish up before the next Mystery Class starts. Ruth really went over the top with the piece. She has made this canvas an artistic masterpiece. It is truly a work of art. Cannot wait to see what she does with the Raymond Crawford Merry Christmas canvas.
Off to finish up the leaves before dinner.
