Whew! This last stretch was t-o-u-g-h!! I feel like I've been saying this canvas is "almost finished" for months, but at long last, I took the magnets off the canvas just moments ago. The rocks were done up in literally at least a dozen stitches. Rocks don't look all smooth & similar, especially lava rocks in the Tyrenhhian Sea, so I just kept on mixing up threads & stitches. My stitching library got a lot of action the past few weeks.
Next on the list: finish my belt for my handbag; homework for the SNS Haute Couture class; then a canvas for my Godson. There is a Ponza canvas sitting on bars that Tony Minieri made up a great stitch guide for, and there's the last Ponza canvas that I'm going to do with Sharon G's suggestions from our continuing on line class.
